While I’m on the “thankful” post, thank you all for the kind comments about the first piece I framed. I’m really pleased with both of these and I’m telling you . . it is not hard! The lacing might make me say bad words. You start out with a piece of thread that’s at least a mile long. It can get hung up on EVERTHING! Buttons on your clothes, the arm of the chair, the corner of the table, the placemant, the pins that aren’t even poking out. If Denise was my neighbor, which I think she should be, it would be easier. Someone to hold the extra thread so it doesn’t get knotted around itself or something else would be so much easier. There has to be some kind of gizmo I can use. While framing this second piece, I kept saying . . professional frames who di this all day every day have to have a better way! Someone . . tell me a better way.
The good news is that once I get caught up on the framing, I’ll do each piece as I finish it (right!) and won’t have several to do at once.
Anyway . . piece #2, Always Thankful by Erica Michaels, has now been framed.
Like most everything we do, the second one went a heck of a lot faster than the first one did.
I only bought one little ball of the perle cotton for framing and I don’t know that I have enough left to do two pieces pieces, A Big Red House and the marriage piece but I’m going to see and I will order more perle cotton.
