Today I collected my framed pieces
Today was a beautifully fine and golden Autumn day so Mother and I took a trip to Hamilton (around 1 hours drive from where I live) and after some shopping for new winter clothes for my new job (!) we went to the picture framer to collect my three pieces. Here's the first. The Suzanne Sampler from Wiehenberg Samplers. I used 28 count confederate grey linen and Weeks Dye Works Deep Sea colour overdyed thread. This photo was taken at night and I am hoping for a fine and sunny autumn day tomorrow to take a better shot but at least you can see. Being totally useless at choosing frames I bowed to the superior wisdom and experience of Sarah the framer and am really pleased with this. It is basically blue black but with a slightly pewter patina so suits the blue of the embroidery well. This piece hangs above my bed where I can enjoy it daily.
