Framed

I finally got some things framed:

Twister, finished 2012, this piece will hang in our entryway along with other black/white/red things.

Mystery Retreat, Las Vegas, 2009, this huge project has been finished for 5 years!.  I had it stuck on my wall with tacks in Vegas, but now it is finally properly framed.  I actually use this piece as a stitch sampler and refer to it often!

My version of Jean Hilton's Puzzle Purse, my "Puzzle Piece".  The Puzzle Purse was a Cyberpointers' SAL in 2013.  I did not want a purse, so reworked the design area into a square.  It was quite a challenge, which was Jean Hilton's intention!  I'm pleased to have it framed now.

I like your treatment of the puzzle purse. I've got the threads and canvas to stitch mine, but haven't started yet. I'm going to make a purse out of it, using dark blue leather, and carry it as a statement piece. Someday.....

Congratulations. It all looks wonderful and it must be great to be able to enjoy everything as you go about your normal routine.

Love all your finishes. I have both Twister and Jean's Puzzle purse in my stash. You inspire me to pull them out!

Your TWISTER is fabulous. Do you have a thread list you'd be willing to share?

Sallie, this was the red/gray colorway listed in the pattern.
