One thing leads to another

Have you ever started to find one thing for a project and as you are digging through the mountains of patterns and fabrics and threads, you see something and its a small finish and say "I've got to do this one now"......totally diverted from your original intention to work on the present project?
Well , that's what happened, one thing led to another and before you know it I had found a frame that I had for about 10 years in a box, and in looking for another pattern, this freebie I got in an order one time from The Sampler Girl just fell out of the box. I then thought how a finish in this frame would make a great display with my angel collection. So I worked this on a scrap piece of 28 ct cashel linen, in Light Terra cotta, stitching 1 over 1 and it fit perfectly in my little frame and will perch on my angel collection shelf.
The colors are more true in the second pic. Almost a hint of late summer, hint of Fallish maybe with that Terra Cotta color.


  1. Fabric and frame are a nice combination!

  2. It is perfect! A lovely little stitchy pick-me-up. Wonderful job.

  3. That is adorable, Jennifer! And so perfect for that frame, and your angel collection!
