My husband recently had time to make some frames for my pile of cross stitch finishes. I used foam core board with straight pins to mount these pieces. (Thanks Marly!) You'll see that I've decided not to use glass in the frames.

I absolutely LOVE the floss colors on this one - my flash washed it out a little - but the colors are just gorgeous.
One of my next stitching projects - Harvest Pinkeep Drum by Stacy Nash Primitives.
I was excited to find this pattern in my older son's bedroom - I thought maybe he was going to make it for me as a surprise birthday present. When I questioned him about it - did he need some help getting started, supplies, etc - he laughed! Can you believe that?
Here's the problem ---
Or should I say culprit? The Graybinator decided to take the pattern out of my cross stitch bag, hauled it upstairs and dumped it in Matthew's room. Funny thing, he took a different pattern up to my bedroom - I thought maybe my husband was going to start stitching too.
Happy Labor Day!
