Splendor XII "Celebrate Your Heart"
We are having a once in a lifetime snowstorm going on in the Midwest--Snowcopalypse 2011! Since my university was closed and I couldn't go to work today, I spent the day doing a little needlework and framing. I finally got around to framing this piece that was designed by Maureen Appleton of The Heart's Content in 2005, but I stitched it in 2008--and am only three years behind on framing. I love Maureen's designs and that she uses "over one" stitching on fine counts of fabric to create a high resolution result. I think this one was on 40 count. The rubbed cherry frame is by Steve Seilo. Although it came with a red thread, I changed it to blue because blue is my favorite color. :-) Happy storm, everyone!
