That phone call came a few weeks ago, you know that one that we wait with baited breath for days or weeks “You framing is ready!” I love it, love, love it. Did I say love it? Unfortunately that phone call came before the holidays and I had to wait, wait, wait and it was killing me that I had to wait to go and pick it up.
I was ready for my monthly routine of breakfast at Julienne’s…it is scary when they know my usual order. A stop at A Stitch in Time, the framers and then the bead shop. I found 2 new awesome bead books and some colors of Nymo in size 0 that Meredith says we should be usuing for beading. I think I understand now why I struggle with some beading threads, they are too thick!
As usual the girls at New Creations Picture Framing did not disappoint. I had seen this frame on a Halloween piece earlier this year as it was there waiting to be picked up. It was black with orange accents and the frame really spoke to me…so I asked “do they make it with greens?” “well yes they do, but it is being discontinued!” ooh the story of my life! They were able to order some molding samples and as soon as we saw it, we knew that it would be just purr~fect. And well it is. Luckily they still had some of it left to be ordered.
The phone is awesome, still learning all the new features that it has. Of course I needed to make sure that the basics of phone calls and texts were able to be handled. Then came the alarm clock, calculator, emails, Facebook and taking pictures. You can see your stitching in a different light with a picture, especially when you are questioning your choice of thread colors and stitches. I also like to take pictures and either text ’em or post it to Facbook.
See I need to able to catch these 2 in their daily antics. Yes there are 2 there…
you don’t see AlleyCat?

It’s cold in here! Please put the covers back on. What are you thinking? and until next time…keep on stitching
