Isabella Johnstone

Already over a week has gone by and I cant believe it.  I wanted to post this next exciting frame on Friday, but here it is already Monday night!!!  Holy smokes!  Where does the time really go?!!!!!
My husband and I had a great weekend, antiquing and supper with friends and relatives.  Fun to catch up on good old times.

But, with out further delay,  here is a great finish last month, with another super frame choice. Here is Isabella Johnstone from Needlwork Press.  (The pattern was just released this nashville in pattern form)  I am just as thrilled with this one, as I was for Double Dee.
The whole reason behind the 2 or double frames, is that I wanted from the start of stitching Isabella, to have gold next to her, just like the original.  Hard to find a frame exactly from over 150 plus years ago in condition I would be interested in....and could afford-- LOL......... I was shown this great frame and I was sold.  For me, it was perfect.   Isabella is a fine girl, and the large and ornate frame just blew me away.  Using the double frame for Double Dee, came after my framer showed me this gold frame for Isabella.  Outstanding right?!  I am thrilled with choosing something so different than normal, but now you see a pattern going right?!  Fancier is good!!!
I cant wait to show you the last one of the bunch---- stay tuned!!!!!!

Hope all of you had a great weekend, anyone go to any Nashville parties and have super new stash??!!!!!!  What did you get?!!!!!  Any good stitching to report?!!!!  I am still working on Weeping Tree, however, I am onto the house :)  Very very exciting!!!!!!!!
