Queen Bee

Got another finish done today which is always a good thing. This pattern stitched up rather quickly so that always helps. I had many different ideas for finishing this pattern and then ultimately ended up putting it in a dry-brushed eggplant and sage frame. It took me forever to match the colors perfectly, but it finally all came together. I'm still trying to figure out if I need to embellish the frame or if it's fine on it's own. This means it will go to the "think tank table" until I decide... decisions, decisions. :)

Speaking of frames, I've been getting a lot of e-mails from people asking where I buy my frames. I actually don't buy them, my dad makes them in his studio and then I hand-paint them based on the design/colors/theme of the pattern. I'm sure he would be willing to make frames if you need them in specific sizes. E-mail me to let me know!
