My Cone Runneth Over Framed!



This my cone runneth over by Raise the Roof designs. A fun and colorful stitch that I did on a linen called sorbet if I recall correctly. Quite appropriate don't you think? I have this hanging in my kitchen and I really like the colors in it. Double matted in a dark mauve color and framed in a wide simple black frame.

I have been a terrible slacker in posting I know. Currently, I am working on completing my autumn exchange. I am also mulling over what I really want to work on and stitch. Too many other distractions have come into play lately like reading and work. Thanks for all the comments regarding the kids first day of school. They are settling in fairly well and we are adjusting to the school times. Thanks too for taking the time to visit me. Have a great week.

This lovely piece always makes me smile. I don't know why, because I don't know you personally, but I think it's so 'you'! It's beautifully framed, too.
Hey, reading is every bit as important as stitching. If only we could do it at the same time, eh?

What a great finish, that is just so cute, and the colors are great. I'll bet it was a lot of fun to stitch. You picked a perfect frame and mat for it. It's a piece that would make you smile whenever you see it.

I love the fabbie that you used on this piece. Scary thing is that when I worked at the ice cream parlor, I'd make sizable cones such as this. Your piece brings back fun memories.

sugardoll said...

LOL I hope your fabric doesn't get stained!

Cute finish, and the frame suits perfectly!

Meari said...

Oh, how cute. The framing and mat look great with it.
