Day 6 of 10 - Garden of Eden framed

It's 9pm and I almost forgot to post!  

I really enjoyed the comments from yesterday's post where you reminded me that women today still torture ourselves for fashion's sake. Examples included high heels, which are stiletto these days. You can really use those for weapons, can't you? Then there are the control undergarments - modern day corsets I suppose. Then someone mentioned the tweezing and waxing. Ouch!

Oh, I've digressed. Today's post - yes! Garden of Eden, by the Goode Huswife.


I really love this one turned out. The frame was very sweet and simple. 

Well, that's it for another day! Short and sweet post, just the way you like it, right? ;-)

Thanks for visiting again. See you tomorrow!

That looks fantastic. Gorgeous frame for a gorgeous stitched design.
Shiver....tweezing and waxing. Not doing such things. Tried that once and never again...lol

How could you have forgotten us, lol? Love the pictures of the garden and that last BBD finish.

Melissa, your taste in frames is absolutely PERFECT. Everything you've posted recently is just beyond gorgeous, stitching wise and framing too! Love each one so much!
Sorry I haven't been commenting very much, problems with my arm and so I have to limit my computer time. Thought I'd better say hi though, since I've been faithfully reading. Hope you know how nice it is to see you posting :)

Another stunner, Melissa! I hadn't been around for a while because my stitching mojo went missing, but visiting your blog inspires me to pick up my needle again, so thank you for updating so frequently, and for showing us your amazing work!

This frame looks so good. I'm curious to see where your will place this wonderful A&E piece on your sampler wall.

The frame sets the piece off to perfection. The border in the design does all the work so you don't need an elaborate frame - it looks great.
