Garden Verses and 2 FFO's

Over the last week, I've continued to make progress on Garden Verses.  Here's a picture from Saturday when I moved my qsnaps.
I've since almost finished the purple, but I don't have another picture.

I also decided to frame a couple of pieces.  I started out with four but didn't like the frames for two of them once I brought them upstairs.  But two is better than what I had.

So, here is FFO #1
A Stitcher's Heart from Sekas & Co

and FFO #2
FoF 79.  Artwork by Jasmine Becket-Griffith, charted by HAED

Both were frames purchased from Michaels, probably during a sale.  I tend to pick up square frames even if I don't know what I"m going to use them for.  The mat for FoF 79 started out white but I didn't like it with the stitching and the frame so I painted it black and speckled it with some silver.  I think it turned out pretty nice.

Always nice to get the pieces framed and up. I love the FoF mat, it really bring out the colours in her hair. Great progress on Garden Verses.

Wow you have done so much on Garden Verses. The colours look amazing. Good job! I love the silver specks on the mat for FOF79 that looks really effective. I agree with you the white mat would have killed the design.
