Hello my Friends! I know, once again, that I've been remiss in writing a blog post...there just has been so much going on and not enough hours in the day!
Yesterday I had a fun little finish! I've been working on Threadwork Primitives, Grey House as my morning stitch and finished it yesterday morning! I so enjoyed working on this one!
Once it was finished, I painted a wood frame that I picked up at the thrift store awhile back. I used Folk Art Paint in black. As I was waiting for the paint to dry, I took the stitched piece and laced it to a piece of mat board, that I covered in batting.
Before I added the stitched piece to my frame, I roughed up the paint a little bit with sand paper..it gives it that rusty/crusty look I like. Then I put it all together! The finish was exactly like I imagined and Grey House now hangs in my living room.
I stitched it on a piece of 32 count Light Cappuccino by R&R with the called for DMC Threads, 2 over 2.
I also decided to leave the date as charted ;)
