(I apologize mightily for the quality of this photo. My husband had been using the camera previously (to take pictures of flowers, at my request) and I'm assuming some of his settings, or the time of day, might have made a difference to the pics I tried to take with it afterward. I promise, I will get a better picture when we get it framed.)
This embroidered winter scene had been started by a friend many years ago. She had completed the snowman and the children around him, and I think part of the barn, but that was all. Later she was cleaning out her needlework stash because her eyesight wasn't conducive to it anymore, and gave me a lot of things, including this just-begun winter scene. I had always wanted to make something like this, so it worked out well.
I'm thankful to have it finished at last. Now my hubby wants to make a frame for it. Really, I think any wooden frame would do, but his sister suggested a birch log frame, so that is what he is planning to do.
|The birch log frame in this picture is the type he wants to make to frame the embroidery.|
Interestingly, this design is called "Snow Angels". What's funny is that my other major UFO is a cross stitch (on 18 count Aida; yikes!)
and it is also called "Snow Angels"!
