LHN "The Old West" Framed!!

Hi, thank you for your lovely words for my English problem on the last post.
Your words are so kind and warm, thanks a lot , I will keep up to write in English and a few lines of my own language.

Since I finished and framed Quaker "Love", I think I'm in stitching mood now!!
My mum's friend was so pleased to receive the sampler that I've stitched, and then so I was very happy to hear from her on the phone how she loves it!

先日、母のお友達に完成したQuaker "LOVE" を無事プレゼントすることが出来ました。とても喜んで頂けて、ホッとしています。


And here is a framed piece "The Old West" © Little House Needleworks!
The frame is a ready made one, and I ordered mat for this.
Why I choose Orange mat is what this is for my dearest son Tass and he loves "Orange", that's why!



久々に完成品を見届けたことで、少しステッチモードに・・・
完成したまま置いてある作品を、少しずつですが形にしていこうと思います。
息子の部屋に、と刺した "The Old West" © Little House Needleworks もようやく額へ・・・
息子の好きなオレンジ色のマットを選んでみました。
クリーム色もしっくり纏まって綺麗だったのですが、まだ小さい子供なので今は明るい色で。
そして時が経てばまた違った色のマットに替えようと思います。



He loves "Toy Story" and so he said this is like "Woody's world". :D
He loves this sampler and now this is hung on the wall in his room!


The guitar is his own, he learnt guitar when he was 4 years old, but he was so bored and sleepy at lesson, he quit it.
He was thinking he can soon play like a guitarlist, lol
Recently he wants to learn guitar again, though I wish him to play the piano. :D

4歳の頃に習っていた息子のギター、まだ小さ過ぎて幼稚園後のレッスンが眠くて辞めてしまいました。
それに加え、どうやら彼は最初から歌手やギタリストの様に弾けると思っていたみたいです。
まだ小さいので無理はないかな・・・(笑)



Anyway, here the frame and mat colour don't show justice their original colour, I don't like to take photos in the room, can't take well at all.
So the frame colour is more lighter than this photo and kind of wine red and also the linen colour is more rich and darker, this might be a little bit closer than these photos, here the link of my finished piece (
here).

マットの色はこんな感じなのですが、額の色は残念ながら写真ではうまく出ていません。
ダークブラウンに写っていますが、もっと赤っぽい、こっくりとしたワインレッドのような感じです。


By the way, isn't this sand art lovely?!
Actually this was maden by Tass my son (when he was 6 years old).
He loves to create something, and he really wanted to try this sand art.
I thought he won't be able to do it well, though he did quite well as his age! (Of course the artist's arts are more and more beautiful and just gorgeous!!)
I will update some snaps of his and art sometime later!


そして、こちらはまだ早いと思っていたけれど、「やりたい!」と毎回お店の前を通る度に言うので挑戦させてみた”サンドアート”です。
一番小さな器で、一番簡単なパターンを教えてもらってやり始めましたが、6歳にしてはなかなか上手く出来たのでは?!
色目も自分で考えて真剣にやっていました。こういう手作業は大好きみたいです。
小さな観葉植物も、枯れず、生き生きと勉強机に明るさを添えてくれています。




Take care and have a lovely week ahead!
I'm going to tidy up my messy room to change for the stitching room, and also have to find out the chart for the private SAL that Nancy and I are going to do! :(
Until then, I've been stitching "Bo Peep" © La-D-Da.


Thanks for your visit and comments!!
Bye for now,

Wonderful finish, Yuko and I know Tass Loves it, especially with the Toy Story theme in his room!

Nancy said...

Old West looks wonderful Yuko. I think the orange mat makes it very cheerful! I am sure Tass must love having this in his room.

I haven't pulled fabric or threads yet for our SAL, but I do have the chart. Take your time, and enjoy Bo Peep!

Great job on all the framing ;) Tass' sand art is lovely!

Can't wait to see what you're up to next!

Wendy said...

Congratulations on your recent finishes. They are beautiful and you have chosen wonderful frames for them both. I'm sure Tass loves having his mother's beautiful stitching decorate his bedroom.

Quakerもとても素敵でしたが、坊やのために作られたこちらもさらにいいですね。オレンジ色のマットが作品の中のそれぞれの糸の色を引き立てて映えますね。私も自分で額装出来るようになりたいものですxxx

Susan said...

Your finish is lovely, Yuko! The frame is beautiful.

I love Tass' sand art - the little flamingo is adorable!
