Finally Framed!

Took a long time, but they’re finally framed:

Houses of Hawk Run Hollow by Carriage House Samplings

The framer & I had a lengthy discussion about this frame. I liked the orangey color but thought the frame was too narrow for this large piece and I wasn’t too crazy about the black beading.
I’m so glad I went with her suggestion because the black beading accents the piece perfectly!

Here's a close up -

With My Needle by The Goode Huswife

And a close-up -

This is a real splurge for me because I usually try to find ready made frames and do the labor myself. Houses was such a large piece I didn't think I could do it properly.


  1. Those are both so gorgeous. You were right to splurge on professional framing. You'll treasure those forever.

  2. timeless on both counts
    real treasures

  3. Love the frames you chose on these! I was researching different Houses of Hawk Run Hollow pieces and ran across yours. Did you use 40 ct linen and just one strand of DMC or ?? Would love to know! I'm trying to not splurge on silks and I love the way yours turned out! Thanks!
