Framed Finishes

Howdy, y'all! Thought I would post two of my recent finishes now that they are framed up and ready to be given away.

Here is the first one, with the requisite notes :) :

Design: Let's Go To The Beach

Designer: Designer: Judy Whitman for JBW Designs

Fabric: 28 count Graziano Milan linen in white from Norden Crafts

Fibers: DMC Embroidery Floss Art 117 in 150, 159, 160, 161, 336, 435, and 3855

Here is the second finish:

Design: Harvest Sampler as featured in the Fall/Winter 1996 Holiday Crafts magazine by Better Homes and Gardens

Designer: Linda Reeves of La Broderie

Fabric: 28 count Cashel linen by Zweigart in Summer Khaki .

Fibers Used: DMC Flower Thread in 2400, 2433, 2434, 2613, 2782, 2898. Caron Collection Wildflowers thread in Fiesta and Marigold.

Accouterments: Mill Hill Beads in Number G02011 Victorian Gold. By Jupiter! apple charm in antique gold.

I purchased both frames at Hobby Lobby. They were both on sale at 50% off. I think both of the frames really set off the needlework. I hope the presents are well received!

Well, I best be off for now. I need to get to wrapping up these presents and I need to get some more stitching done. I've joined the 2012 WIPocalypse over at Measi's Musings. I am hoping to put a bigger dent into my stash next year. I would love to have to buy more tubs on account of my finishing so much and not because I bought more stuff. :P

Hope everyone's having a great day! :)
