So, where on earth will I find space for these???

I've picked up two pieces from the picture framers - Fantasy Triptych and Waiting for Ships. It took me ages to pick out the frames and mounts, but it was worth the effort. I'm really pleased with how they turned out.

There's only one problem - where on earth am I going to find room to hang them? I feel a major picture reorganisation coming on!

I spent part of last week on holiday in Spain with friends. Although I took some stitching with me I didn't do any at all. It was a lovely trip, I'll share some photos later on. Since I got back I've worked on a couple of pieces. Last night I finished stitching Bird in Hand:

And since then I've been working on Classic Pooh Birth Sampler - a gift for my friend Helene, who had a baby girl 2 weeks ago. This is how far I have got:

Hope everyone else is having a lovely relaxing weekend, with plenty of stitching time!

Those framed pieces are just lovely! I hope someday I will have a large Mirabilia and Teresa Wentzler on my wall!!

The framed pictures are great, they really need a wall to themselves! I love the Fantasy Tryptych in particular.

They are so beautiful! I can always find space somewhere and even have stitching in my WC and bathroom. :-)

I know you can do the small Japanese flower scarf Jo. It is so easy and if I can do it so can you most certainly. This is the blog tutorial that I used which is really clear to follow:

Wow! The framing choices you made are both excellent; the frames are simple and elegant, and the mottled colours pick up on the cross-stitches so well (I love how the brown/bronze frame brings out the the intricate 'panel' stitched frames of the triptych)! Beautiful, beautiful works. Congrats on your wonderful framings!

I'm sure you'll find some space for your magnificent framed projects (where there's a will...) - they're stunning, congrats!

Gorgeous framing, congratulations

Bird in Hand is lovely.
