First off I would like to express my thanks to everyone who has helped me complete this beautiful tribute to my parents. Your words of encouragement helped me keep my attention on the goal and now I have this hanging in my living room to look at everyday and to remember my parents with pride and love.
Now onto a question for all of you who like a challenge. I had this beautiful print of a Johann Baptist Hofner painting hanging where my parents tribute now hangs. I purchased this at a yard sale because of the beautiful wooden frame it's in. There is a price tag on the back of it for $200.00 and I paid only $20.00 - don't you just love yard sales!!!! My challenge is this, I would love to stitch something for in this frame but haven't come across any designs that would work. The inside dimensions are approx. 18 x 26 inches....it's large! If any of you can think of a pattern that might work, please post it here so I can maybe get started on something.
I hope everyone is having a fantastic week so far. Has everyone seen the challenge over at Notforgotten Farms? You can check it out here. She has given you a free pattern and your challenge is to come up with a finish that is different than just your average pillow or frame. I've printed it off and have some ideas rolling around in my head and if they don't roll away completely, I think I'll enter her challenge.
Blessings as always,
