Show and Tell #4


Last but not least (for now) is Lauren's Voice by La D Da. This was my first stitch of 2009. I liked the message and decided to use it as my own reminder through out the year. I am sorry the picture is a tad blurry but the light in the room was playing some funny tricks on the camera. I chose a frame with some inner beading that really plays well with the border around the design.

There will be more framing to show off soon when I get Thankful Wheeler back so just hang on to the edge of your seats! lol. I know I am! While I am waiting to get the rest of it back home where it belongs I will be searching for wall space! Goodbye old pictures. Hello samplers!

Yesterday was one of those "I wasn't expecting this to happen" days. Our dryer is on the fritz. The repairman came out and I told him what we thought it was. He was certain it was something else (without even checking the problem we mentioned). He did some work, charged us a nice chunk and left. When I put a load of clothes in the dryer - boom - the same problem was still there! We called him and he is coming out sometime today. I sure hope he listens to me this time!

Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by to see me again!

It looks great, Sherry! Wonderful frame choice.

I hope the dryer gets fixed this time... and that the guy doesn't charge you since he didn't fix it the first time!

Lauren's Voice is BEAUTIFUL! Love that frame! Your home is going to a bounty of beauty ;o)

Hope your dryer gets fixed...I broke mine last week. Luckily my husband is a handy guy to have around!

"Treat Yourself Well"...something we all should take to heart. Beautiful finish and frame choice!
Repairmen can be so frustrating. We had a similar incident recently. I just wanted to choke him!! All is well now though.

I really love this one -- and the frame is perfect for it! Beautiful! As for that repairman -- sounds like he's not a very good repairman to me! Ugh! I hope he fixes it this time -- and for free too!

I love it, the message is one that we all need to remember.

Hope your dryer is fixed today, of course it always goes out when there is a wet load in there, not when they are almost dry.

Beautiful Sherry! Very nice frame choice.

Appliance failure is a huge event when it happens in our house! I cannot go for more than a day without laundry being processed - it's a life or death situation, lol! Ditto with the dishwasher. A few months back when my dryer died, we checked all over town to get a replacement, but had to wait a week to get one. Finally Best Buy sold us a floor model; we loaded it up in the SUV, and I was back in business. So I guess I'd have this "repairman's" head on a platter if he pulled that on me.

Loved seeing all your newly-framed stitching!

It looks great Sherry! I can't wait to see Thankful. That's one that I've been eyeing to do for a little bit. Hope you get the dryer fixed right this time!!

Hey Sherry, I like this piece and the framing is really nice.

Tracy J said...

Very nice finish and framing!

Catherine said...

Your framed pieces have all looked fantastic! You'll have to show pics of where you hang them all!

Had issues with my oven recently, but the guy I called was really good. I do hope he takes cover if he tries to charge you for the second visit!
