I'm pretty pleased with the results myself. I think I've spent a quarter of what I would have done if I'd got them framed professionally. Of course the choice of frames is a bit limited if you buy them off the peg, and not all stitching is a standard size, so here's one I had to have made up specially. I had a bit of a battle convincing the framer I wanted a frame made but didn't want her to frame the embroidery!
Stitched on 32ct Toitoi from Countrystitch with all recommended threads except WDW Mascara (substituted DMC 310)
And this is the same frame as the one on Their Song but it worked for this one too.
Stitched one over one on 32ct Haystack evenweave from Countrystitch using Gloriana Cranberry
And I nearly finished Spring Snapperland - I finally added all the buttons but I'm one short - I used up the shop's stock of yellow so the last one is on order!
Stitched on 32ct Pearl Grey Belfast with recommended threads. Buttons substituted for snappers
I have the Spring Snapperland charts up for grabs - complete with their snappers. If anyone would like them let me know!
Lastly, you may have spotted most of the photos are taken outside. It's been GLORIOUS this weekend (and still is). My hanging basket is flowering madly - it feels like spring!
