A Treasured Time is finished and framed!

Yes, I'm delighted to say that my Christmas embroidery is back from the framers and hanging on the wall.

I'm thrilled with how it turned out.  I love the ornate frame, which is actually made from combining two frames (don't ask about the cost!).

It's very hard to take a photo of a square object! So please forgive any wonkiness in these photos.  The frame is perfectly straight.

It's a lovely feeling to have this framed and on the wall for Christmas.  Although I love the style of this design, I'm not going to start anything else like this for at least another year. (You can remind me of that!!)

You can read more about this kit, and how I stitched quarter each quarter of the year, in my earlier blog post here. The pattern is "A Treasured Time" by Dimensions Gold, and the threads and fabric were included in the kit.

Merry Christmas everyone.

What beautiful work!!!! I quilt but also cross stitch too. Yes, I do have an idea of who much it cost you to have it framed.....The special material that they have to be mounted on,the spacers and the frame just about always has to be made...The old saying....JUST BECAUSE ITS HANDMADE, DOESN'T MAKE IT CHEAP!! MERRY CHRISTMAS,WENDY

Lots of Christmas quilts, a gingerbread village AND Christmas embroidery! Something tells me you love this season, Wendy.
I will try to remember to remind you not to start another for a year, as asked. :)
