Autumnal Abstract - 160 hour update

Good afternoon all!

I'm back with another progress report! Thank you again for all of the wonderfully kind comments you have been leaving about Autumnal Abstract. I'm glad you enjoy watching my progress and are as eager and excited as me to see a finish!

As usual, this latest 10 hours of stitching has flown by, aided by a straight-through four hour session Sunday night into Monday morning - thank goodness for being able to pack the children off to bed earlier on Sundays!!

So here are the piccies:

After 150 hours

After 160 hours


I've already looked at mounts and frames from ezeframe.co.uk and experimented with various combinations. I think I've made my decision but as it's quite a bold choice I'm taking my time before ordering. That's the beauty of internet framing - there's simply no rush.

Until next time then.

All the best and
Happy stitching :)

  2. You're really moving on this! Since I can't typically afford framers and I've started mounting my projects myself, I've been debating using an on-line framer to make my frame. Let me know how yours turns out!

    1. I've used ezeframe before to frame three cross stitches and four pictures. They have not let me down yet. I'll talk more about them in a future post. :)

    1. I'll let you in on a bit of a secret - I've picked a frame that wasn't my first choice. But other than that you'll have to wait and see! :)
