Elizabeth Savilles, framed

Here is my Cinderella, Elizabeth Savilles, all dressed for the ball! We'll start with a close up of the frame. 


She is now hanging right over my work table so I see her every day. Now that I see the photo, she looks splotchier than she really is. Some of it may be reflections off the glass. Anyway, I am so pleased!

Thank you for your comments and well wishes in the last post. I am still adjusting to my new work schedule. I did not stitch at all this past week nor did much of anything else! It will take awhile to get into a state where I can carve out time to do other things when I get home. I confess I have not been visiting blogs nor answering emails much but I'm sure you understand. My goal is at least try and keep posting once a week! 

This is probably the shortest post in a long while and if I sound tired...well, I am! I am happy though!

Thank you for your visit. We have company from out of town coming for dinner so I'd best get a move on! Have a great week!

She looks wonderful Melissa! You picked the perfect frame. I would definitely hang her in a place where you can see her every day. She is a beauty!!

Elizabeth looks fantastic in her frame.
I wouldn't worry about visiting blogs and the such. Sometimes life gets hectic and busy and there is not much time for things like that. :)

Just gorgeous!! And even though you're tired from your job, your goal of posting once a week is so admirable. I've lost my blogging mojo, but hope to get at least one post in by the end of the month :)

Enjoy your weekend, Melissa--I'm sure you really look forward to them now that you're working full-time again!!

Anne said...

Oh Melissa, Elizabeth is gorgeous in that frame! I really have to take a trip to your framer...perhaps for Jane! I've been thinking about you and I will email you in a bit once I've cooled down from our stuffy apartment. I understand you don't have time when working full time. Rest up my dear!

Hugs
