What's this?



Two posts in one day!! Oh, my!!

Well, I picked up my Sail Away that was framed by The Stitching Post (Baltimore) yesterday. I usually go for all the bling, lots of mats, fancy cuts, doodads added on, etc. But this time, I restrained myself and went with a simple frame. This was a new frame that The Stitching Post had just received. A nice deep blue green, just slightly distressed, with little medallions on each corner. You could pick how many of the medallions you wanted. It doesn't show in the picture, but each corner has one.





And a close-up of the medallions:



(It's really difficult to try and take a picture of a loong picture like this one....but then, my picture taking skills are nill...;)

I've just discovered your blog, and I've enjoyed reading it! I'm a quilter and a stitcher too, so I can really appreciate all of your lovely projects!

I'm particularly loving your Gingerbread House. I just blogged about it today myself!
