Another Finish

Home of a Needleworker is framed! Not bad for a recycled frame, but don't look too closely because the frame job isn't perfect ~ but it was free:)

This was a very enjoyable project. Too bad I'd put it down for so long!

Yesterday, I replaced the binding on a very old quilt. I can't remember if I made it in 1982 or 1983, but it's been in use ever since then. The binding had gotten so frayed, but with the new binding, maybe we can get another 28 or 29 years of use!

I've not done too much blog reading or commenting lately, so my reader is pretty full, but will slowly read through all the back posts.

It was very cool, cloudy and a little rainy the past week, but the weekend should be in the 80's. Everything is in bloom and the trees are starting to leaf out and the grass is beginning to green up. I'm ready to get out and play in the dirt!

We will be attending a wedding later this evening. It should be fun...and I'm looking forward to having a piece of cake!

The LHN looks great! Is it framed with glass? I'm up in the air about framing with glass or without. Some of the small stuff I've framed looks fine without. But glass sure makes it look good. Have a gigantic piece of cake!
