Back From the Framers!

I took my sampler to Michael's to get framed two weeks ago. They are usually really fast, so I was waiting patiently for that phone call from the framing center telling me that my custom framing order is ready to be picked up at any time. A week goes by. A week and a half. Two weeks!! No phone call. Finally, yesterday afternoon I called to check on the status of the order and lo and behold - it was ready! I was out the door so fast poor MJ didn't have time to ask me where I was going. Ready to see my masterpiece? Drum roll please!


MJ came out to help me carry it into the house when I got home and the first thing he said to me was, "Oh my God, this is HUGE!!" Good thing I had a wall large enough for it.

A close up of the fame:

The sampler on the dining room wall with the butterflies:
When that sampler made it's way back into my house, it was a very happy day in my stitching life.
This morning I came downstairs to start my day when I see this scene in my den:

Tiger the Wonder Kitty, sitting on my project bag, looking like he's protecting my ornaments and fabric at all cost. Don't mess with the Wonder Kitty!
