Framed stitchwork

 

Good Morning Everyone,

As you can see I have been busy finishing several cross-stitch pieces.  I take the finished pieces to the picture framers who are always generous with their compliments and help me select the best mounts and frames to set off the stitchwork – so a huge shout out for “The Picture Framer” , Hitchin, Hertfordshire.

Here they are individually,  laid out on a white towel.

Apologies for the reflections!!!  I stitched this during several lunch breaks at work.

Next the Peacock

This is stitched on linen, took longer and more concentration than aida fabric, but the colours are so beautiful.  The frame is a sage green with a bronzed effect, which matches in with the sage green in the design.  I hope you agree that it doesn’t detract from the vibrant colours of the peacock itself.

The Ballet Dancer and the Peacock are not my design – just to be clear on that matter – but the stitch work is all mine.

Next, my image of Hetty

I love this!!  I am very proud of my attempt to capture my bird’s personality.  I converted the photo into a cross stitch design and purchased all the DMC threads that were required.  Again the frame is sage green with a bronzed effect and doesn’t take away the beautiful colours of my Meyer’s Parrot. (By the way Hetty approves it greatly by bobbing up and down – only bird owners will know what I mean).

Well still working on Lady Greensleeves,

Let me know which is your favourite.
