For Framing

As I have promised in this post, I know that I owe you an update on my "A Place We Call Home".  I took photos of it before bringing to the framer last Saturday, but since it was Holy Week here, they are closed.  So maybe I will bring it again this weekend.

I really love stitching this one.  I made some tweaking as some of the threads called for are not available here. 

 I added metallic threads to the border design as it is so close to the leaves color if I won't make the addition.  Also I enjoy using metallics.  Am developing an addiction right now, LOL!  I hope you can see them in the following photos:

I also learned something here, the hard way :-(  I've used a metallic pen (sorry I forgot to take a photo of what I've used) for marking the places I am going to stitch but made errors in counting.  When I've tried to erase the markings, it won't go away no matter what I do.  So after that mistake, I will only, only use pencils for marking.  Please see the marks beside the letters c, a, and l.
 Thank you friends for dropping by.  Take care always :-)
