Love it When They're Framed

You'd think after almost forty years of stitching, I wouldn't be surprised any more by the splendiciousness (new word, so much more descriptive than "splendor") that a frame adds to a piece of needlework. I finished "Quaker Diamonds" some time ago, but I just now found the time to frame it. So I'm sharing it again. Enjoy. (More to come later this week. I'm on a framing binge.)

  1. I loved it before - but you're right it does add to the finished work; the frame that is. Still gorgeous!

  8. Wow, wow, WOW! It's stunning, Tommye! And the frame you chose really compliments those rich colors. What a masterpiece. Wouldn't you love to be a fly on the wall in 100 years when someone has this hanging in their home?

    Thanks for sharing this photo with us!
