A most Happy Sunday to you, dear friends!!
In my last post, I shared my punchneedle piece of Hex and Frex,
a wonderful design by the talented Lori of Notforgotten Farm!
After much thought, I decided to frame it!
The frame is primitively painted in flat black and then antiqued!
I stained Hex and Frex to add age and just love how it looks now, though I'm not sure you can truly see the difference in this photo!
This is a picture of the back and shows it better!! The front looks just like this, softer and warmer and looks old, which I LOVE!!!
For the background, I chose a tiny homespun in mustard check,
which really draws your eye to the mustard colors in the piece!
Black coverlet cloth is a nice backdrop to these wonderful colors!
I use this on my table under my old trencher!
Love these black scissors for snipping!
Love this sweet Acorn Needle holder, I recently found!
It opens to hold your needles for stitching those fall projects!
My handmade Velvet Acorn Pincushion, stuffed with sawdust and perfect for holding pins at the ready! I still have one available in my Picture Trail Shoppe, if you think you might need one, plus some other goodes for your Fall/Halloween pleasure!!
Normally, I hand stitch my punched pieces to the fabric background, but in this case, I am choosing to glue it in place due to it's size, and also the fact that I am making it for myself!
Once I have it all finished, I will share it with you!!! It has been such a fun project and if you have been thinking about making it, hop over to Notforgotten Farm!
Thank you so much for spending some time visiting with me today! I hope you will be sure to stop back in the next few days to see the finish, as well as some other photos of some more of my Fall/Halloween decorating!!!
Wishing you a day filled with Creativity and Inspiration, my friends~
