Stashing, Stitching & Framing

Hello Stitching Friends

Winter must be good for stitching, as I have been spending a lot of time indoors stitching, blog hopping and stashing. I took advantage of the Aussie $$ value and splurged on some Moira Blackburn designs I’d had my eye on for ages…

Moira Blackburn purchases l-r: Three Things, Peaceful Garden, Pluck Till Time, Tree of Life and middle: Persian Proverb


Then I framed a quaker piece (Quaker au Clefs) I stitched  in 2009, I think. I’ve had this frame for a while, but only recently twigged that it fit this design perfectly : smile:

Quaker au Clefs, Jardin Prive


And last, but not least, a bit more progress with Sally Spencer (BOAF)

I’m sorry the photos are not the best – it’s overcast today, with a hint of rain…

I’m off to the shops now to get me some salmon and wild rice for lunch tomorrow.

Happy Stitching 😉
