Letter C Reveal!!

Just a quick fly by post.

My niece's birthday has come and gone. It's almost been a month. Unbelievable that time flies by so fast! I managed to get Mr. Ex to extract this photo so that I can actually post something since my sister is struggling with photo skills worse than mine. I think we both need to take some photography lessons. Too bad we live so far from each other. That would be a fun sister bonding activity! Here's the photo that Jill sent me prior to shipment.

It's a little hard to see the beads on the bottom of the design. Maybe I can score some super pics when I visit in November. Now, it's hanging on Cristina's super lavender wall. That wall is bright! I may need sunglasses just to look at it!

And as always, I love what Jill did with the matting. She is so talented!

Until next time...

Really stunning, Valerie! Your niece is so lucky to have an aunt like you :)

Awesome! So excited too, my cousin's having a girl and I'll stitching Nora's L as her birth sampler.

Carol R said...

Wow Valerie that is stunning - there's something about the letter C - I wonder what that can be? You need to do the letter V now!

Giovanna said...

Oh my, that's wonderful! Lucky niece!

Lisa said...

Yep...it is gorgeous - both the stitching (a labor of love!) and the finished framework. Someday, when I have something worth really framing, I am going to have to get Jill's information and use her. What a treasure. It was so good to get together with you and Brandy last Sunday. I hope that we continue finding time to do little gtg. NiaH is a perfect place.
Have a good week!
