Back Home

Good Sunday morning everyone!  I had decided that my next post would come when Ann Grimshaw was back from the framer, but  didn't think it would happen so soon!  Jim and I were just getting ready to go out yesterday morning for our usual groceries and errands when the phone rang.  Guess how it was?  Plans were quickly adjusted to include a first stop for this:
e

What a thrill to have her back home and hung.  Turns out we chose the exact same molding for her that was also selected for And They Sinned, the difference being that Ann's has a silver edge along the stitching, while ATS is more of a burnished gold. Guess I like the look!


The plan is to hang her together with Sarah Tatum, who's next in the line-up for framing.....
 

.....but until Sarah is framed, we've hung her in our hallway gallery with my Bishop Hill prints.



So it feels really good to check Ann off the goals list and move on to finishing Frances Eden and Hannah Pepper.  Thanks for stopping by!

Hi again, Mary! Was wondering if you remember how many skeins of silk it took for Ann? You have inspired me, I think I would like to try a variegated look too.

Sarah Tatum will be a beautiful compliment to Ann!
