Christmas Rules

I finished framing Christmas Rules this morning.  It turned out all right.  I miscalculated when I started stitching and only wound up with a half inch of fabric at the bottom after finishing the last rule.  I would have liked to have had a bit more fabric showing around the edge.  Lesson learned.  I made some notes about measuring for future framing, especially Halloween Rules, like to add an extra 1/4 inch around each side, as the inside lip of the frame where the foam core rests is 1/4 inch.  I had not realized that before.


And here is my progress on Where's The Party?  Just a bit more to go now.


I discovered a new app for the iPad last night.  It's called Words With Friends.  It is just like Scrabble, and you can play a game with whoever is registered to the app.  All you have to do is search for your friend and start a game.  As each move is played, a notification is sent to the other person, so you can play the game at your leisure.  I started one last night with a friend and it's been a lot of fun!  If you would like to play, my username is ladybugfae.  

I hope you have a terrific Tuesday!  For those expecting snow (and that is us) I hope you stay safe and warm.

In peace, love, and stitches,
Danielle

Christmas Rules looks fab! Such a great finish :-)
Nice progress on your WIP too.
DH and I often play Scrabble (low tech board game version) at the weekends, it's a fun way to spend time together. The kids like to play too but it is a little harder as they are less interested in scoring points and more interested in putting down words like poo. LOL
Our snow has all melted now and the rain has stopped too. Hope you don't get too much snow.

Your framed piece looks great! Speaking of apps, Is there a stitch calculator app for the ipad? That would come in really handy for all of us.

There's always play in the fabric too, along with the lip...sometimes its really hard to make it perfect, but I think this is really great and I love that frame :)
