Finishing and Framing

So, last night I finally finished Autumn Dragon on Christine’s RR. All those fractional stitches with blending filament and the back stitch took a lot longer than I expected. I do, however love how it turned out. The colors are fantastic! It is ready to be off to Outi for the final round of stitching:)

Yesterday I also picked up two pieces that I had dropped of for framing a few weeks ago. Both pieces have been finished since the end of last year and I just got around to taking them. Bad Leslie. Oh Well, they are done now and I love how they turned out. The first is a seasonal themed round robin I participated in last year with Renee, Christine and Mylene. I stitched the summer house in the top right.

The second is Mirabilia’s Woodland Fairy which I finished last November. I really love how she turned out. Her golden dress would look perfect on the walls of our family room, but unfortunatly there isn’t really a place where she could hang and not be obscured by something. I need to spend some time wandering around the place looking for the perfect spot.

Well, off to a work dinner…hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend!

  2. These are gorgeous, especially the fairy. Well done on completing them and having them framed. I bet you must feel pleased having completed all those fractional stitches in the dragon.

  3. Congrats on finishing the dragon Leslie! Love your framing. You must feel so proud! 🙂

  4. Aww, I do like that dragon. I had that chartbook and I know they’re not exactly an easy stitch.

    Your framed pieces look gorgeous! The fairy would look great in the room you photographed her in as her dress matches the walls so well. Is that the family room? Shame there’s no room for her there.

  5. Autumn looks great, as do the framed pieces (I really like those frames)! 🙂
