Two Framed Finishes

A week or so before Christmas I was able to pick up two framed pieces from Stitchville USA . If you live in the Minneapolis area and you have never been to this store - you must go. Go now. It is a fabulous store with wonderful people working there that are always ready and willing to help with anything you need. They also do a fabulous job framing!

So - here is my Birds of a Feather Mystery Sampler all framed:

Birds of a Feather Mystery Sampler
With Thy Needle & Thread
Called for Fabric & Fiber
Called for Frame - Valley Primitives

It was such a fun project to stitch and the frame that was made for this, well, I just can't put in to words how beautiful it is. The pictures don't do it justice. Here is a closer picture of the frame. The color of the frame is just wonderful with the colors of the stitching.

I also picked up my Gameboard Sampler:

The Drawn Thread
Called for Fabric and Threads
Frame is a bluish weathered frame ordered through Stitchville

Here is a closer look at the frame. I really like it:

So, that's it for now. I have a couple more posts coming with some finishes and what I'm working on now. Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Beautiful framing! The mouldings compliment the stitching perfectly!

  2. Great stitching finishes, and the molding you picked really showcases them well. I had so much fun stitching the mystery sampler last summer, and its interesting seeing how everyone finished theirs.

  3. Beautiful choices in frame mouldings! I had my Sampler Gameboard framed similarly, but my frame has a red/maroon tone to it. Your mystery sampler is lovely!

  4. Wow very lovely finishes and perfect framing., they both looking so lovely ..

  5. Wow!
    Two fantastic pieces to treasure.
    I was at Stitchville for my first time last Sunday. The store is so awesome, there are so many models and accessories, my head was spinning, lol

  6. Oh gorgeous...both of them, the BoaF mystery sampler is one that I need to get my act together on and get started. My Mom loves it and she is building a new home. My hope is to hand her the framed piece when she moves in. Gotta get busy! I love your gameboard pretty and all those sweet little houses...gorgeous!

  7. Gorgeous framing oh, and the stitching is even better.
