They've Been Framed:)

I just had to share with you the two samplers I got back today from my new framer Patti Nicolosi.
I met Patti at a retreat this past Spring and she is what I would call a "great find".  
She is everything you want in a framer....Skilled, affordable, and friendly...
plus she has a great eye for what frames work well.  I trusted her to pick the frames for these and I think she was spot on.  So if you are in need of a wonderful framer 
contact Patti at

These are both sampler designs by Blackbird Design that I stitched earlier in the year.
I just love how they turned out.  I changed most of the color as I wanted them to look just like the pictures of the ones in the booklet.

1861 Sampler is on the left and Scarlet Letters is on the right. I am so pleased with them both and they are now gracing the walls in our home.  Wonderful designs and both were such a joy to stitch.  I really love Barb and Alma's design, but especially their the samplers they've reproduced.
Happy weekend all ~ Nan

What fabulous framed samplers; your stitching and Patti's framing! I really like the moldings she used. Would you happen to have any information on them, Nan? Enjoy your weekend!

Patti is the GREATEST framer! Everything I have framed was done by her! She has an excellent eye, and I LOVE all my pieces even more because of the way they look framed!! Enjoy your lovely works--they are stunning! Hugs!
