Framing and Finishing

My customers are quite prolific stitchers. I wish I could stitch half as fast as some of them. I thought I'd show you what they have been up to the last few months. I've had the privilege to frame these beauties you see here.

First up is Linda's All Hallow's Eve. This is a design by Chessie & Me and was framed in a Maryland Hornbook Frame by Pricilla's Pocket. Linda stitched the design in the recommended Belle Soie silks on Meadow Rue by Lakeside Linens.

Then we have a design from the Blackbird's Designs Loose Feathers: Summer leaflet. Terry stitched this with the recommended silks and we chose a frame from Larson Juhl.

Terry also stitched "Think Winter" by Lizzie Kate. It's adorable with the little birdie and JabCo buttons. This is also a custom frame from Larson Juhl.

Marilyn does all her own finishing. It doesn't matter if it's a bellpull, an ornament, a shaker box....she does it all wonderfully. She loves to stitch Victoria Sampler designs and here is "Biscornuments."

Linda stitched "Get Scared" by Shepherd's Bush and then I laced it and put it in the decorative round box. Linda has a collection now of little round designs that she can pop in and out of the pretty black and ivory boxes that Shepherd's Bush loves to use.

This is just a sampling of what's come through the shop in the last few weeks. Stay tuned because I have lots more to show you!


  1. thx for sharing. I enjoy seeing pics of the finished projects!!!!

  2. So many cute finishes, Cathy. Great frames. I always enjoy Laura's posts showing us what all the girls are stitching on the stitch days at your shop :-)

  3. Everything is just gorgeous! I count myself very lucky because I have seen many of these pieces in progress and then finished! Exciting!

  4. You do such beautiful work, Cathy. Every piece is treated as if it was your own!! We're so fortunate to have you and your shop close by.
