Back from the framers!

I sent my Gathering eggs off to be framed. I finally got it back! And I LOVE it. I had to put all my trust into the framers because I sent it to them in the mail. I think they did a wonderful job. I love the way the matt blends into my Aida. Anyways, here is a picture of it. Please tell me what you honestly think of it. The frame is a metal frame, and I'm not crazy about it but I think it's looks great with the matt and finished piece. As for my WIP, Poof Hat. I should have NEVER stitched this on black. I've had to change things because it doesn't show on the black Aida. I feel as if it is being over taken by the black. I've gotten so much of it done that I can't quit now. If you know of anyone going to stitch this on black plzzzz tell them to rethink it. LOL I think my next project is going to be another Halloween piece. I went crazy at Christmas time and bought like a million Halloween charts. Or I might stitch my Country Summer. I never know what I'm going to start next. It has to call to me.

I gotta work afternoon shift today. I don't know if I can stay wake til midnight. LOL I'm usually in bed by 8pm. Keith lost his job last week so I'm trying to pick up some extra hours. We have money saved in the bank but it won't last long. I hate giving up my days off. I'd rather pull doubles then work my day off. What is nice about Keith being home is he is trying to break Brandon from his Binky. I don't have it in me to do it. If he cries for it I give in and give it too him. LOL Now if I can just get Keith to do some of the house work. Think that will ever happen???

I better get off here and get Brandon. He's up and wanting to eat. That's all he wants to do here lately. Must be going through a growth spur.

I love your framed picture, looks really good. I have a piece stitching on dark blue and that is bad enough... black must be really tricky!

Wowza! The frame looks fabulous.
I love Poof on black, it really stands out. Don't work too hard.

I love the framing on Gathering Eggs, it is beautiful. She did a wonderful job framing it.

I think Poof looks good on black, it really pops off the fabric. Maybe, after it is done and you are not staring at black all the time, you will like it more.

Sorry to hear Keith lost his job, I hope he is able to find something else soon. I love the photo of Brandon taking a nap while eating, it is adorable.

I have also nominated you for the Brillante Blogger Award. Please visit my blog to pick up the award and all the details.
