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.

Jill, what wonderful friends and clients you have. Paying for your gifts of art just don't do it. And these folks were probably as overwhelmed as we always are when we get that wonderfully packed box with our framed projects in them. Love these projects that you're showing. The artwork you do, and your eye for framing always totally aenhances the beautiful pieces. Thx Jill. You are the best.

Hi Jill,
I am a big fan of your studio's work! I am so excited that you are currently framing my Mirabilia 'Fairy Idyll'. Amber and I have been collaborating through email exchanges. I have recently read through all of your blog posts and realize that there are two works you have framed in the past that I would dearly love to stitch. The first is an amazing alphabet in the January 7, 2012 post that spells the name 'Emilia'. The second are three tiny winter houses in the December 26, 2012 post. The first one has the words 'Silent Night' over it, can't read the other two. They are all three in one frame, the mat has three openings cut into it. The frame is the same one Amber and I have chosen for my 'Fairy Idyll'. Thanks for your help,
Lauren Laney

I like the last Love one. And the framed heart with fabric roses in the middle...It melted my heart.
