I have had Lizzie Kate's Christmas Rules finished for a while.  I have decided to frame it myself.  I just cannot justify any longer paying the professional framing prices, and I know if I take my time, I can do it myself.  I found a great site online, Franken Frames, that will cut your frame to any size.  I ordered a frame for Christmas Rules and the Last Minute Christmas Kit and the total came to $60 with adding foamcore and a hanging kit.  All I have to get further are sequin pins, batting, and double sided sticky tape.  I also ordered acid free dust cover sheets and a dust cover trimmer.  I mean serious business!!!  So, stay tuned and wish me luck!

Just a tiny bit more done on Where's The Party? This picture looks nothing like what the actual stitching does in real life. 

As one of my Christmas gifts from BF I asked for a Nikon Coolpix S80 digital camera.  My current camera is about five years old, so I am hoping that a newer camera will take better pics.

My routine is off for the next few days as we have The Daughter staying with us until Christmas morning and BF is also off work.

I received The Silver Needle's newsletter today about their New Year Eve's sale and they mentioned a new Lizzie Kate coming out, but no pics. If anyone has heard anything or has a pic, please let me know!  You all know Lizzie Kate is my favorite designer.

Have a great Thursday!  Now just TWO days until Christmas!!

In peace, love and stitches,

Good luck with your framing endeavor, Danielle. What are dust cover sheets and trimmer?

Merry Christmas!

Good for you! I'm sure you'll do a great job :o) Makes much more sense when you're going to be framing a lot of pieces. I can't wait to see the results.

I'm anxiously waiting to see pictures too!
