Illusions & Menagerie FRAMED

I finally had a couple of things framed.
Here is Illusions by Ro Pace.  This turned out better than I expected.  We had the mats & frame all picked out and then they told me the cost.  Whew!  Back to the drawing board & picked a simple ordinary mat, but with the same frame.  Done.  I picked it up yesterday and I think it looks great!  This piece will go in our guest room with all the other "blue" things.
And here is Menagerie.
This was CyberPointers' year long project for 2012.
I'm only a little behind (ahem!).
This technique sampler was fun to figure out & stitch, but I'm not sure I really like it.  I think my colors are too much the same value and the background overwhelms.
Oh well, we learn by doing, they say!

Oh Liz! Fantastic!
And what lucky guests, to be surrounded by your stitching :)

That mat looks great. And, both pieces look like very interesting stitch combinations. I like the more muted colors on Menagerie and the way the blues are more dense nearer the brown blocks seems to draw attention to the blocks, at least only having the online picture to look at.
