Just a short note to show you

the framed Peaceable Kingdom!  I picked it up from the framers on Friday, and I am really happy with the way it looks.  I went with a metal frame because I really don't know the color of his furniture and what he will have in the future if he wants to have it then.   I am not sure when I will be giving it to him.  If we can't get together some time this year, I guess I will send it to him for Christmas.

I have done a little stitching on Welcome Friends, but just a little.  I have about half of Lizzie*Kate's March Block finished, and I hope to finish it this week.  Not sure if I will be able to finish finish it until next week though, we are having a big crowd here for this coming weekend.  Much March Madness, and good food!

Thank you all so much for stopping by my little blog and for leaving such sweet comments.  Until next time, have a happy, healthy, stitchy time!

The metal frame looks very nice, and as you said it wont date with furniture changes etc, I always think about that when I'm framing. It has stitched up lovely :)
