Rose Quaker Sampler

I couldn't resist stitching Rose Quaker from Stickideen von der Wiehenburg after reading from Hearty Tones. This is my first time stitching on 40ct linen, it is uneasy since I have been stitching on 32ct for so long. But it is fun and the outcome is so gorgeous. I'm stitching this over 2 on 40ct Lambswool Linen from Wichelt using 1 strand of the DMC listed on the chart.

Oh well.....I did not have a good start. I did not differentiate between symbol Celtic and Cross clearly, hence I stitched it wrongly :(  No wonder the design did not stand out as it should.

Beside Rose Quaker, I also stitched another simpler design by Bent Creek, Autumn Row. The pumpkins look very cute. However, I ran out of DMC 310 Black, will try to finish it up after getting 310 today.

Happy stitching!

As promised, I gotta show you some of the framed finishes.

One of my recent finish, Dog Lessons for People by Lizzie Kate. I like this antique-looking frame so much! I got this from JD Arts & Frame, they carry wide range of imported frame.

Guess most of you think this frame looks very familiar. Yes, its from Ikea. I bought this frame last 2 years ago, but yet to confirm what to be framed that time. Oh well....isn't this finish match this frame nicely?

This is a pre-made photo frame that used to frame other documents. I recycled it with helps from JD Arts & Frame. It turned out gorgeous, just nice to place at my bookshelf.

If you have followed my blog lately, most probably you have seen it in my previous post. Yes, but I would like to take a better shot to show how nice of this frame when sitting on my Ikea Billy bookshelf :)

This is another frame by D Arts & Frame too. I personally like dark solid frame.

Opsss....Where is the frame? Hehehe....I did not frame this, but stick on door instead. My little prince, Chatwin keep pointing it when seeing this, as if asking me "Mom, who is the boy?"

I finished up Alphabet Tree Sampler last couple of weeks, I think it turned out pretty cute.
