Love One Another...

It's done!!!  If you click on the photo it will enlarge and you can see some of the stitching that went on with this project :)  This is a Timeless Traditions pillow pattern by Norma Whaley that I decided to frame it.  I added the additional embroidery stitches to give a little pizazz.   I also decided the heart needed to have something and since I was making it for my son and DIL for their first home I added their last name and the year they bought the house.  Finding a frame was a  bit of challenge because I didn't plan well enough ahead to make the back ground piece fit a standard frame.  I tromped around the craft store until I found something I thought would work...which was a teal colored chalk board.  I popped the chalk board out and painted the frame red.  Then I dripped some wax and finished it off with black paint.  Lightly sanding the wax drips it revealed a bit of the red making the frame have an older look. I am pleased with how it turned out!

I think the deer know something we don't.  They have been incognito for a couple of months but are starting to show up.  Bow hunting season is fast approaching and there is just a slight chill in the air at night.
