Fallen Roses Update


I just couldn't stand seeing this hanging on the sewing room wall so I've gotten back into gear and I think I'm in high speed.  I've finished everything on the right side of the lady and now all I have left is the header which is pretty intense but it's just straight stitching so I shouldn't have any problem with it.  

I am one of those that when I see a frame I like I buy it.  Well I'm known for hanging out at stores and buying frames that have been ordered but not liked when the customer sees it.  This one I purchased for......are you ready......$8.00 and there's not a thing wrong with it.  They just wanted to unload it fast and I was there at the right time.  I have some frames that are 4 feet x 4 feet that I paid pennies for but will find something to go in them eventually.  The reason I show you this is to get all of you ladies opinion on the frame and how it looks with the design.  I like it but it's always nice to get second and third opinions.  I'm hoping I get this finished by friday ......wish me luck.  
When I'm finished with this, it's back to Rhonda's Ort Bag and some of the other pieces I've started.  I hope everyone is having a great stitching week!
Blessings as always,
Barbara

What a beautiful almost-finish. The frame couldn't be better, with your gold hearts and the lady's hair... It must have been meant to be!

Fallen Roses is stunning and I think the frame is perfect for it. From the picture, the gold/white of the frame seems to match the heart shaped pearls exactly.

Hugs,
Veronica.
