Framed for FNSI

Thank you Wendy for our special Easter sew in.... Friday night is always fun to cyberly get together ... the footy is on, the dinner simple and the tea hot ....

Wendy sent those of us who linked in to the evening a very sweet Easter design... thank you so much xx

The first bit of framing done was my picture from Michelle that I received last month .... I found a frame I thought would show it off and put this together quite easily.  Michelle has only recently taken up doing art and her work is already amazing....

I just love my wild dog and happy to have him up on the wall now... the white frame brings out the markings though that isn't too clear from the picture....

Next was fixing up this frame... when we moved into the house we inherited a few prints, some. like this one, which were not to my taste but the frame is pretty

 I found a fat quarter of a pretty pale blue and now I have a custom made 'white board' to keep a list of things to do on....

On Friday morning I did some quilting and framed the edge of this vintage doily... I did a lot more quilting on it aswell...

.. and by evening the final frame was ready to be hand sewn down in front of the TV....

I also managed to finish off the final Tea Time Teddies in the series.... (they only had the green bits to do)

... meet Blue Bird Teddy ....

.. and Sitting Pretty Teddie....

... they are all cut into their hexagon shapes and make a nice little frame....
(these teddies are a series from Michelle)

My final 'frame' is adding my special Easter mini to the metal frame.... Maria sent me this one in a mini swap we did a couple of years ago....

Wishing you all a Happy Easter

I love having a long break... Hubz and I have been doing odd jobs around the house and in the garden ... it's almost tea time and I baked a cake since the Widget is coming round....

I hope he likes it!!

Righto, Gotto Go... time to put the kettle on....
