Framed!

It's amazing what you can do when you have a deadline to work to! I finished and framed the MS kitties in time for my friends leaving party.....



......a simple black frame and a double mat in black and white made the colours of the design really pop.....



....and best of all, my friend loved it!

So once the kitties were completed, I went back to the Lakeside Needlecraft's Tea and Cakes SAL...


Blocks 3 and 4 are lettering designs and I wasn't sure how I felt about them so I might see if I can find some other Durene Jones designs that are suitable to stitch in the empty blocks.


If you'd like to join in with this adorable SAL, you can find the free charts by clicking here. (go on....you know you want to!)

Hee hee, it's lovely to be an enabler!!! :)

Until next time...happy stitching!

Rhona, I love you finished this piece for your friend. The mat and frame you chose give it a nice, clean finish. I begin to drool every time I see someone post an update to the stitch-a-long. It looks so delicious. --Andrea

Hi Rhona,

I love your cats, they are so cute, very pretty!
Thankyou for the comment on my project bags, I have only just seen the comment on my moderation of blog comments, I don't appear to have received the email, don't know what happened there. Yes Rhona they do take a while to make, I don't rush them as I like them to be nicely finished.

Your friend has great taste, the cats in mugs looks gorgeous in that frame.
