An afternoon post~~~~

Just finished framing Gracie's Meadow
I am really pleased with how it looks. I was so lucky to find a square frame at Jo Ann's that fits the design size which is 5 inch square. This was a fun stitch to do. If you began here with acrylic paint for the sky and land and a few snap shots of flowers that I had taken and to this. I think I may do a few more; seasonal scenes and they can easily be put into this frame. I have sketched out a couple of ideas. Due to restrictions with my hand I best start them soon if they are to be done at all. Today I see the Hand specialist to report on my therapy. The therapist and I agree more OT is necessary and I am most certainly not ready for work. I do see minimal improvement which is good.  I will be emailing the August Card Exchange list over the weekend. I am so enjoying the handwritten notes and I have even found a couple of recipes and tidbits in some of them. A few of the gals have been part of this every month since we started! I better check my stamp I go to ice my hand....boring! Thank you for stopping by this day...hope you have a good day.

I have one frame that is the perfect size square for several of my stitches, I switch it out every few months and wish I could remember where I got it from. I love that you designed the meadow piece, it turned out amazing!
