finally these 2 small and ancient cross stitch projects are in their frames....the frames themselves go back to a small shop in mansfield, massachusetts, called "the picket fence" and were purchased in the 70s maybe? could have been 80s though...this was before I had decided to focus on only quilting. have a few more cross stitch pieces that need framing and/or finishing....my DD is an expert and it is her pretty much solitary craft, so have saved my stuff for her to go through when all my projects are done. even though my home is a small apartment, hand made items make it quite homey and cozy...and camouflages the institutional box look. and have racked up another UFO finish, my snowman candlemat that will show another day as it's drying after being washed. now on to the next project!
