Framed and a new piece

Happy New Year everyone! My apologies for being continually absent :P I don't turn my computer on all that often of late and I find LJ frustrating to use on my phone, at least for posts like this.

But here are a couple of things I thought you all might be interested in seeing.

First we have Peggy's Cove in its nice frame, I'm really pleased with how this one came together and my brother is really happy with it too! We were torn when we took it in to be framed whether to go with a simple black frame like all the rest of his pictures in his apartment have or something weathered which I thought would really suit the subject matter.

As you can see we went with the weathered frame, and I think it looks amazing!

Next up we have the new project that I'm working on for my best friend. You may recall that I mentioned awhile back that the original piece I did for her was unfortunately lost in the Fort McMurray fire. I knew I was definitely going to do another piece for her and this is what I've been working on.

Started November 4th 2016 I'm stitching it with one thread on 25ct fabric, which has to be my favorite fabric to work with! I can get excellent detail out of the patterns while still keeping them a manageable size.

Mulder is her kitty's name, he's got such a beautiful face! I got to meet him once but he was very shy with me :P not even his beloved brush could bring him too me, he came running when he heard me tap it on the floor but as soon as he saw it was me holding it he was all like "Not happening!"

Peggy's Cove looks absolutely lovely, the frame fits so well.

I'm sure Mulder is going to be another great project!

I love them! That finish for Peggy's Cove couldn't be more perfect! and I'm a sucker for kitties, especially kitties whose names make me think of the X-Files. :)

Aww, Mulder looks a good deal like my own kitty! They have the same white face marking. I look forward to seeing all of him!

I love that weathered frame, good choice.
