Celebration and Framing

I'm sorry i've not been around much in the last week or so. I just felt like I didn't have anything to say. Even though I've not been posting I have been reading all your blogs. Everyone has been doing such lovely work.

This past weekend. I went to Celebration of Needlework in New Hampshire. I had a lot of fun and got to meet up with old friends and make a few new ones.

Mary and I shared a room together again this year and we had a lot of fun.

On Saturday we went out for lunch with Carol and Margaret. We went shopping at Colonial Needleworks
and had lunch at Shorty's Mexican Roadhouse. I had a great time ladies. Thanks for a wonderful afternoon!

Carol I can't believe you got tickets to the game on Saturday! I'm green with envy!!! Manny's 3 run HR must have been so great to see in person.

As some of you know from previous posts in my blog. I was in a RR a while ago. Everyone in the group got their RR back except for me. Mary was in the RR and she was so sweet to me. She had her RR famed and she gave it to me. Thanks so much Mary! You are wonderful friend!



While I was gone I got a call from the framers telling me the pieces I'd dropped off were ready to be picked up so I got them today after work. Here they all are. Sorry the pictures are taken at a bit of an angle but, I didn't want the flash to bounce back on the glass in the picture. I hope you all like them.

Glad you had a great weekend with everyone at Celebration.

Great framing Jenn. The one of the cat on the stove just cracked me up!!! That was very sweet of Mary to give you her RR.

Lovely pieces but I especially love the kitty one - how cute is that?!!

Carol said...

Your framings came out fantastic! And that was so sweet of Mary to give you her RR! I had fun with you this weekend - thanks!! Wasn't Manny's HR a solo one on Saturday? I thought it was... but after a while, the games all blend together :-)

Sounds like you had a great time! And that was so sweet of Mary. The RR looks lovely in that frame. Your work also looks beautiful framed. My favourite is the one with the cat. Your photo at the bottom really sets it off.

Hi Jenn, All I wanted to say is said in all the above, and Mary was a sweetie indeed!
The frame with your cats photo gets the highest points! :o)
But all are beautyful, now where will you hang them...

Hi Jenn,

Saw you on San's forum and thought I'd drop by your site. Your pieces are lovely.

How horrible about your RR. That's somethings I've always been leary of. Mary is a true friend to give you her RR.

Hi Jenn, I hope everything is ok?
I'm just asking because it's so quiet here.
Have you heard anything yet about a new Mira fairy?
;o)

Jenn!
I love your framed pictures. I like the cat one too. It's so perfect to have a picture of Misha exactly like the stitching pattern.
I love the Harry Potter Bear too. I can't wait to start stitching it. Now just to decide on the material. I think for once I will choose something other than what it says to stitch it on. Imagine that...lol. I had a wonderful weekend as well. It was the perfect relaxing weekend which I needed after the weekend before.
Thanks for being there at Celebrations for me!!! I need to post in my blog soon too.
Happy Stitching!
Mary

Oh!
I just noticed your picture/avatar. It's soooo cool. :)

Barbara said...

I'm doing a Winnie the Pooh right now that looks very much like the one in your picture. Cute!!

The framing of your wonderful stitching really enhances it. I especially like the comparative photo of your kitty on the stove framed with the stitched kitty on the stove. Any burnt tails? ; )
