Picked up a few stitches on this Blackbird Design piece.
Pink Hill Manor
Wrinkles and all here---- but the thing is......I went antique shopping for a frame 2 weeks ago and saw one that looked almost identical to the one in the stitched model! I got quite giddy.
I was so excited......I knew it was a bit bigger but when I got it home, it was alot bigger.
Also, I got it for a great price but the lady who sold it, said....."you're not taking that picture out just to use the frame, right?"
Me: "yes, mam" (biting my lip nervously)
She shrieked practically. It was one of her items I think that she brought to the booth and I said that it was a beautful picture but I had a sampler in mind for it.
Now that it's bigger than I thought, I haven't decided for it to remain framed and hang as-is, get another frame for BBD piece
sew some pretty homespun fabbie around it to fit the frame!
the catcher is taking off the print which is very old.
And not feeling like I committed a felony. : P
I'm seriously thinking that I'm going to remove this print and put Pink Hill Manor in it.
Even though I'm a little nostalgic in removing this pretty print.
If you can see past the light flash on the paper....YIKES! then you can see why I love this frame ;)
I still have a few stitches to decide.
I'm a bit perplexed though.
One thing I DO know for sure is that the prescription glasses I thought I lost forever and ever in January were waiting for me at the bedroom door this morning, presented to me by Miss Abigail Dalenberg! Evidently during the night she went into my closeet and found them in a purse or somewhere???
She was so proud......and I did a complete happy dance before I even made my first cup of tea. They do have her little teeth marks on the side a bit but still very usable and hardly noticable except by me probably and everytime I see them, I remember who loves me......
yes, she got an extra treat for that too......
