Framing posters instead of cross stitch

Last week we finished up some of my favorite pieces.  Most of them are posters of delightful illustrations by artists Eric Carle and Mary Engelbright.  The last was a magical book of postage stamps depicting Harry Potter and friends.  We had so much fun finishing these pieces we're feeling a little guilty!

I hope you enjoy these as much as we did!

I heart you

20 years ago, when I made the decision to become a framer, I had no idea what beautiful, kind, and just downright amazing people I would meet.  I cant' decide if it's cause or effect...Does needlework create such loving people or do beautiful people just have a natural affinity for needlework?  

This week, we've been enjoying the most beautiful "Thank you" bouquet I've ever laid my eyes on.  I know for certain, though, that the family who sent them far surpass the beauty of any bouquet on earth.  (I won't mention names because I happen to know that they are very private people and I would cause them distress by mentioning names.  You know who you are.  Know that you are loved and appreciated every minute of every day.

When I started this blog, I had intended to make it a scrapbook of the framing we finished every week.  My intentions got derailed somehow and here I am with an enormous file of pieces that I should have posted but somehow I got caught up in the "doing" but not the "showing".  So, here now are a couple of pieces we finished last week and a whole bunch that I've pulled from the "hasn't been posted yet" file - to celebrate the season.

I heart you.
