another completion

Here is a Sampler Girl freebie finally framed- I can't believe I stitched it in 2008! I thought it was last year.  Granted I did wait a while to get the frame from my dad, but I must have put off framing it longer than I thought. Anyway- here 'tis-
I was going to frame Bent Creek's "Blackbird House" yesterday- got it out and contemplated removing the button before I ironed it- but didn't- there was some really bad creases in it and I was having a hard time getting them out so I kind of forgot about the button, and when I flipped it over the little blackbird was all broken.  So now I have to wait to frame it - will have to order another button.   I really need to start rolling my projects up instead of folding them- the creases are so hard to get out after so long a time. That or I need to start finishing all my projects into whatever I plan to do with them, right after I finish stitching them.

Well I was sitting in the Sonic drive-thru the other morning (I love their jr. breakfast burritos and they are only 1.00!) and while I was waiting at the speaker I saw this- I hope you can make out the moth/butterfly- not sure which it was-I think a dark colored butterfly-

It's on the yellow flower in the front. I was so glad I had my camera with me, even if it didn't turn out that great!  The kids and I also saw some deer not far from our house the other day- and got pretty close- but as soon as I got the camera they ran and I just got a couple of blobs. Oh well.
And last but not least- a sign of fall-even though it continues to be in the 90's (ugh) here-

Great finish! Sorry about the button. Yep - hot here, but I saw two beautiful bright yellow trees today out of the blue! (or should I say green???) :)

Your framed piece is lovely and the color of the frame is perfect for it.

Great framing and finish!!! I am with you on finishing the finishes right away, but sometimes it's just not financially the right time...lol. I know that I will be an ironing maniac soon enough when I try to iron out "Makin' New Friends" to frame for a Christmas gift this year..

Your Sampler Girl piece looks great!
Ouch. Too bad about the button. I keep my finishes all rolled up. The only ones with creases are the ones where I didn't get the crease out from when the fabric was sold folded. (And some of those are impossible to get out!)

Fantastic finish! Bummer about the button. I was reading about the Blog Frog stuff. I haven't signed into my BF account in months but sometimes I show up, sometimes I don't. ?!
