The excitement of having the Olympics in our home town has been building. It is nice to see. The kids especially seem very excited as the Olympic torch is relayed from community to community. We, like a lot of the locals, have our flag out in front of our house. Some cars have little flags sticking out their windows. I always smile when I see that.
I hope it will be go smoothly, with fun and good competition all around.

Now, onto some stitchy updates. Here are the two remaining items I had framed recently.

I was lucky to have bought this frame on sale before and was able to re-use it for Sarah Salter. In its previous life, it housed a 'greeting card' art print, hence the reason for the sale!
My Betrothed Sampler
by Birds of a Feather
I love this frame. It's so unusual. It reminds me of uneven cobblestones, which somehow goes with the design of this piece. I have hung it up with Tulip for my Love from last year.
And that's all my framing for awhile! Thank you for all your compliments about my new sampler wall. (Oh shucks, blushing and all!) Can I share with you a couple of tips how I got to start mine?
- Keep similar frames together - e.g. all brown, all gold. I got this tip from one of the decorating shows.
- Try to pick one piece that's a focal point, then build a collection around it.
(By no means am I saying this is THE way to do it, but it was how I did mine.)
Thank you for your visits and especially that I had 39 comments in one post - I think that's the most for me (not counting giveaway posts). I always enjoy reading your comments even if it's to say 'hey, I hear ya!'
Have a lovely weekend. Happy Valentine's Day! Happy Chinese New Year too on Sunday! It'll be the Year of the Tiger! ...and of course, "Go Canada Go!"
