Framing and Updated Sampler Wall



Winter's Delivery by Blackbird Designs. I love this one. Had a framing mishap I believe. The framer cleaned my piece and the beautiful Vatican Red bled of course. So my creams in the piece became rosy. I was not happy, needless to say. I have thought about taking it apart and redoing the cream in it. But at present plan to leave it for now.




Summer House by Blackbird Designs. I highlighted the initial of my maiden name as the pattern suggested which is the "G" for Green.




The current sampler wall for now. Hopefully, I will add more soon. This has not been my year for finishing anything! But,a girl can dream right? It looks more like a Blackbird Design wall doesn't it? Next up getting close to a Lizzie Kate Santa finish!

Your framed pieces are lovely Sharon, and your wall is absolutely gorgeous! Winter Delivery is such a pretty piece, and I would have been heart broken if my cream turned rosey. I look forward to seeing your Lizzie Kate santa. They are such cheerful designs!

The wall is beautifully arranged, some lovely work there.

I wouldn't have spotted anything wrong with the "rosy" design, it's still lovely.

Fabulous framing jobs Sharon! If you hadn't of mentioned the color boo-boo, I wouldn't have noticed. It's not like it sticks out. I would leave it. I can't believe they cleaned it though without asking you first :o(

Amazing wall! I wish I had a wall to display my project ... instead I get told if I add anymore holes to it I will get fined. The joys of renting.

I love that you highlighted your initial, kind of like a monogram :) I think Lizzie Kate Santa sounds really cute and I can't wait to see her!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Love your framed pieces, your frame choices are perfection! What a bummer about the running of the red, although I think it looks smashing exactly the way it is. That sampler wall totally rocks!
