All framed up. :-) I LOVE this fabric, I used it like a "frame" then added a few more strips of fabric and framed it in an old frame I had lying around I really love the finished product!




My husband and I are huge tea drinkers. With Valentines day coming up I was looking for something cute to stitch up for him, saw this and instantly knew it HAD to be stitched up for him.

It took a little over five hours to stitch, I think. I used crayon to shade in some of the areas (which I totally think adds to it). Right now its in the hoop and I am not entirely sure if I am going to keep it in the hoop, frame it or make it into a mini quilt.

Sorry for the darker photo:


Here is a picture of the "original design" and the embroidered product:
