Framed

Hmmm, that title could mean a few things, couldn't it?  LOL     

Today it means that I got my Alphabet Sampler finished and framed.   The sampler is a kit that I got from Primitive Gatherings.  I also ordered the frame from them too and then framed it myself. 


I don't have much wall space and the only place it looked okay was in the dining room.



And I also figured that it was time to change the wood box display to something a bit more "spring-like".   Right now it looks quite Easter-y, so I'll add a bit more color next month.  







We finally got a rug,  so I think it's a room that is almost finished.  


That's it from my neck of the woods.  Hope you are all doing well and anticipating the beginning of spring tomorrow.

That turned out so great Anne - and it looks great in your dining room. Love the rug - adds a real softness to the room and the colors are perfect. As usual great job :). Will I be enjoying a meal there in May - like Dave's Taco Chicken, hint hint

I LOVE your sampler! I bought that kit and began tracing the letter on fusible web but that is as far as I have gotten. Looks great in your DR. Your wooden box looks so nice and springy!

Your dining room is worthy of a feature page in COUNTRY LIVING magazine! The newly framed wool sampler is the perfect addition to the room... as is the rug... and the spring flower box on the table. It's just perfect!

I also bought that kit, but i changed out the backing fabric...only its been sitting for months! Can i ask about PG's frame you purchased, would you say that there would be room for a piece of glass along with a foarmboard to mount the fabric on? I prefer my pieces under glass and unsure if the frame would work for me??? Please email @ basketnut@charter.net.
Thanks, Tammy

Perfect spot for a perfect sampler, Anne! I love your spring planter, too! Would you believe we have the same rug - both in our dining room and living room? You have very good taste (wink)!
Cheers!
