Sunflower House - Framed

Yesterday we went out for shopping, as my husband told me that he found a big craft shop where there is also a frame shop, when he went to a customer near there.
He was day off yesterday so I asked him to take me there! I was so thrilled to visit there!!

We were going to order a frame for "Sunflower House" (BBD Loose Feathers #09), but I found reasonable one!
There were so many frames and we were irresolute between gold and wooden frames, which is the best for "Sunflower House".
Then in the end we decided to choose dark brown wooden frame! Here it is!


How is this? I'm quite satisfied how this turned out, I think it's beautiful in this frame!
I hope you like this as well as I do!

Here is the close up photo of the frame.


After we shopped at a craft shop, we went to big shopping mall near by and we met an Olympic medalist (Athens : Gold, Beijing : Silver) of JUDO at Starbucks!
She was with her friend who is also the world games champion, as they sat near by, my husband asked them to take a photo with our little son stealthily.
My son was a bit shy, but they were so nice and they had big smile in the photo!
This would be a great memory for my son, as he loves to watch sports games on TV.

Anyway, thank you so much again for get well soon wishes.
Today I felt better than a past few weeks, although yet no stitching...
On Thursday I have an appointment with a dentist, so I hope I can stitch as soon as possible!
Hopefully I can stitch at least few lines tomorrow!

Take care everyone, and Happy Stitching!

For the Halloween fairy, you have to buy the magazine Cross stitch and needlework (sept 08 issue). You can find it on Ebay USA. Hope it helps ;-)

This is the perfect frame for Sunflower House. Very good chioce. Isn't it exciting to find a new craft shop? What good luck to meet the Olympic champions and to get a photo also! Several years ago I met the Olympic gymnast Nadia Comaneci. Even though I was already an adult I was thrilled just like a child.
