This is the first project I’ve had properly framed, and it amuses me endlessly! That fancy matting. That decorative woodwork frame. I find it delightfully tacky, and it makes me happy =) (Sorry about the crappy pic)
The more I see framing done this well the more I want to shell out the money to do it myself.
A cross stitched Link pillow that I made as a ‘I love you’ present for Ken (my wonderful bishie) I’m so thrilled he liked it. This was the first time I’ve made one of my cross stitch projects into a pillow.
This bookmark bears an image of a slice of cooked bacon. It’s in idea that sprang into my head one day, followed by a strong desire to make it happen. Because who doesn’t love bacon? I didn’t want it to just be generic wavy red-and-white lines either, so I looked up pictures of bacon and designed a pattern to look as realistic as I could manage it.
