I have been knitting, but I've since frogged it all. Remember those brown socks I was working on? Too small. WAY too small. And because I turned the heels differently on each one, they weren't matching. One heel was loose and floopy, the other one was just right. If they had fit around the foot, I would have kept them for me but you can't gift too small socks if they're not even close to pretty knitting. Riiiiiiiiiiiip!
The knitting hasn't been working, but the framing has been. I popped into Michael's yesterday to frame-up some art we picked up at Goodwill. Technically these were ads ripped out of old magazines, but in our house they are a perfect fit for the kitchen. Mayonnaise Treasure Basket Salad and Spam N Salad. Fitting, non? I love an economical project like this...under $30 for the prints, mats and frames for both.
Continuing the framing projects,
I have a few pieces for my office that need the perfect frames too, although I didn't find them yesterday. There wasn't a sqare set to be found. See,
I got a set of three Yarn Bird prints from Freaky Darling on Etsy and I LOVE them. (We had a little trouble with the shipping but she fixed it up lickety split. I love that. Brilliant seller, I recommend her. And besides, a magpie with yarn? It doesn't get any better than that. Perfect for the office.) The only thing is that they're square and I don't want to get custom frames done 'cause that'll cost an arm and a leg.
I also have this Kerry Beary print that I bought a few months back after seeing her fabric line at Hancock Fabrics. (She sells them on ebay as well as on Cafe Press. Heaps to choose from and they're all delish!) Note that it's square too.
I don't think it should be so hard to buy a modern looking square frame for under $40. Know what I mean?
