fall back

How nice was it to wake up to the sun a little earlier this morning? So nice.

I've been looking for alternatives to leaving my stitched pieces in those faux bois frames, and decided to use a traditional mat/frame pairing on my latest embroidery. I don't know how I feel about it being behind glass, because it flattens some of the stitches, but it does look a little more cleaned up. I think I'll try a thicker mat, to distance it from the glass a bit more.

I made this christmas tree. It has dried balsam fir in it, and smells wonderful.

My friend Julie has inspired me to get my etsy shop up and running. I will be working on that over the next few days.
