Framing extravaganza...part 1

I've been really busy with work this week so very little stitching and no blogging!!

Over the weekend we went back to my home town to see some good friends. As always, we didn't quite manage to get all 6 of us together (it's been 6 years now... we'll get there eventually). In the afternoon, Julie, Leanne and I met up with Anne for lunch in Lincoln. I suggested my favourite tea shop, Pimento, and we had a great time, mostly in fits of laughter. Julie's just got back from a round-the-world tour, and previously was living in Finland, so it's been a while... but as with all good friends, it was as though we'd seen each other the previous week. We still laugh about the same stories. You'd have thought they'd become less funny with time, but some are still funny nearly 20 years later!! In the evening Julie, Leanne and I met Michaela for dinner along with Ed and Mikko (Julie's fiance), and did some more catching up! It was a wonderful day

Anyway, at the end of the afternoon in Lincoln I dragged them to the framing shop, to pick up 4 items I took in nearly 2 months ago - taking full advantage of a 25% off voucher that we got through the post. I only have photos of 2, the others are still bubble wrapped from the trip home:


Above the Clouds by Teresa Wentzler, stitched on some mottled blue linen I bought at the Harrogate Knitting and Stitching Show a few years ago. Don't remember the name/make, but it wasn't hand dyed...


Dragon's Treasure by Gillian Brown. I picked up this kit at Harrogate once too...
