They Are Here!!! They Are Here!!!

Yesterday was the best day ever!!!!  If you remember back to my last long ago posting I mentioned that I had something special coming up.  Well, I took a trip to Ogden, Utah to have Jill Rensel frame a project for me.  Well, it didn't end up being just one, it turned into 4.  I am so excited and cannot wait to share the pictures she took.  Since her pictures are better than anything I could do I am going to post her's.

Aren't they amazing!!!! Trust me, seeing them in person in my home is even better than what I could have ever imagined.  I started out wanting to just do Tis the Season from Blackbird Designs since I had seen it at Jill's shop a couple of years ago.  But since I was making the trip out and had a few extra to take I went for it.  I am so pleased and her work is so amazing.

Last weekend we went antique shopping and I found some of the most amazing FROGS.  I love the colors and the different styles.  Depression glass is so amazing.

The one in the middle is very unique in coloring.  It really wasn't part of the frog but since I found one that the frog would fit into I just couldn't pass it by.

I love the green base on the bottom.  Now I need to find a good way to display these and I guess I will be buying lots of scissors to fill them.

Last item I want to show you is my Easter Parade that Kathy from Inspired Needle framed for me.  I found the frame in her shop and thought this would be a good match for this design.  Thank you Kathy, I just love it.

Hope you find lots of time to stitch and enjoy the weekend.  I am outside enjoying the warmth and also watching the house wrens taking care of their babies and feeding them constantly.  It is so neat to listen to the babies calling out for food.

BARB, I absolutely love your framing projects that Jill did...they are gorgeous! I have been thinking about you. My favorite is the Santa sleigh one....cute idea. Did you shop around Park City?

Are you going to Jan's retreat? I see the countdown on some blogs now. I am having a busy year with work and not sure what all I can get to. pam from iowa

What absolutely wonderful finishes. They're absolutely beautiful - both the stitching and the frames.

And love those flower frogs. I'm a collector of those and have one of each of the ones you pictures. I don't think that you can enough of them!!
