At Pemberley Framed

When in doubt about what to do?  Nervous about making this project finish?  Just dive in like me and start piecing and cutting fabrics and cranking out the sewing machine for a little finishing. I used more of the brown regency fabric than the blue as in the model picture on the pattern but I like it both ways. I used a larger frame. I really didn't measure anything....just winged it.

  1. Looks FAB and that frame is perfect!!!

  2. That's really lovely. I'm about to start one of The Sampler Girl's patterns, Tea With Jane Austen. I don't have the confidence to frame my pieces.

  3. Thanks Tanya.

    Jon Lee you could frame your pieces, really you can. Best thing to do is try something small at first like a 3 x 5 or 5 x 7.
    I guess what inspired me is the cost of the framing job at a shop on a large sampler 2 years ago.
    The savings is incredible.
    You can get the Acid-free foam board from any Hobby Lobby or online on Ebay and cut to size.
    Good luck and thanks for the lovely comments.


  4. Looks terrific!! Your whole display is wonderful! Have you seen this?

  5. Great job, love the way you used the fabric.

  6. Beautiful finish! Now I wish I had purchased the fabric, too. Darn budget!

    I will be trying my first framing job this weekend. Thanks for the inspiration.

  7. oh Catherine, I usually follow Gazette but I didn't see this one. Isn't it pretty?


  8. Pemberley is perfect~~~ I LOVE your collection and the display of pillows along with the framed pieces is just beautiful.

    I have in fact saved most all my precious pieces that my boys did during their school years...Like most, I have them saved securely without displaying....But, I am looking forward to others feedback to you about how they have handled their childrens momentos.....

    Have a safe and Happy Mothers Day my friend~~
