Shell Game Framed!

This is Shell Game designed by Dakota Rogers and stitched by me. 
It was one of the ANG Chapter Projects.

It was started in 2006 and finished in March 2015 (as blogged about here). I finally got it framed. I liked the job Nick's Frame Shop did on the boot and they did a FANTASTIC job on this too. Even the sides of the shadow box are matted and the glass is Art Glass again and you can't see it.

It is even better looking in person, but that seems to be how it goes with photos.

Happy Stitching!

Cards and More Cards

Here are a few of the cards I have made the past few months for various occasions.

 This one I made for my mother in law when she retired after 49 years of being a Church Organist!

A welcome to the neighborhood card:

That is about all for now, but I am working on Halloween right now!!

Echo Canyon Framed

As I reported here in November of 2012, I completed my seminar class, Echo Canyon designed and taught by Jeanette Rees in Santa FE, NM.

Well I wanted the mat to be shaped like the stitching and never found a place until now! Nick's Frame Shop in Phoenix. They did a great job I think! Sadly, he is getting ready to retire, so I will need to find another shop. He used what he calls Red Label Art Glass and you can't tell it has glass on it - LOVE IT.

I took them seven cuts to get it looking this way and he gave me the cut outs (below). Number 8 is the charm!

Have a GREAT day!!!
