I've finished ANOTHER stitchery project as part of "Tour de Fibre"!! This pattern is called Peace and Plenty and is designed by Leanne Beasley. I had bought this a few years ago, and didn't start it until a couple of years ago when I had a long train journey to the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham! Then it was put away, and I did a little bit more last year on yet another train journey to Birmingham (yes, to the Festival of Quilts yet again!). Anyway, there was just the top right-hand corner to complete, so I managed to get this finished on Friday. I already had this red tone on tone spotted fabric, and thought it looked perfect for the borders.....
.....the next stage was to think about getting it framed - which can be a rather expensive procedure! Mr F took me shopping today, and I saw the perfect picture frame in a local DIY superstore, so thought I'd have a go at doing this myself. Well my other stitchery picture, "Sew Laugh Love" will definitely be framed professionally - doing this one myself, I managed to break most of my nails, and said a lot of VERY bad words while I was struggling to do it! Not quite sure where I'll this hang up, but it does look smart!
