The frame job of the woodland scenes is beautiful. I'm sure it looks lovely up on the wall. The hedgerow is pretty too--it looks so delicate!

I picked up my Falling Leaves from the framer yesterday. Another great job by Hobby Lobby.

I have a finish. He’s still on the stretcher bars but the last stitch has been stitched. This is Wolf by Dimensions. I didn’t totally love this as I stitched it, but I do love it now. :-)

Oh WOW, love the wolf. I didn't realise it would turn out like that. Beautiful :whoop: So nicely stitched too :applesauce: :applesauce:
I bought the kit several years ago but gave it to church Xmas fayre as I thought, when I saw it up close, I may not be able to do the dark colours. Seeing this there is more brown than I thought but I think it unlikely I would have stitched the dark greys so well as you. Well done on a great finish. :applesauce:

Also :applesauce: :applesauce: to the framers for the other project. Nicely finished in that frame :whoop:

:applesauce: :applesauce: Both look amazing!! So glad to see that Hobby Lobby does good framing as I hope to have a few that need better framing than I can do! The wolf doesn't look like a "little guy". He looks awesome and regal!

He's not technically a Little Guy by my standards, but I couldn't find a thread for him. I thought I had created one but maybe not. Anyway, it didn't make sense to create one just for a final picture so he is now a member of the Little Guy club. And I don't know why he's on his side. The picture in my Fototime library is right side up. I guess he's just tired.

There are a lot of stitches done with three strands and on 18 count fabric, it's just difficult. I went through two or three needles on this one. The snowflake French knots were supposed to be done with three strands, but I opted for two strands and Colonial Knots instead. Dimensions kits can be a pain to stitch, but the results are always worth it.

Must have been hard to do 3 strands on 18 hpi but worth it for the result. A shame your needles broke though. I have not heard of Colonial knots, will look those up :)

And now I see my Wolf is right side up. Better. :-)

Colonial Knots are much easier (for me, at least) than French Knots and are just as pretty, and possibly sturdier. I've been doing them for a very long time.

Just found a video on Youtube on how to do colonial knots, Debby, and I will certainly try them the next time they come up in a project. I always struggle with French knots :doh:

I probably shouldn't be posting this, but I'm doing it anyway. :-) This is the design I stitched for our autumn exchange. Jo hasn't had a chance yet to post a picture of the finished card, but I wanted to show you all the cute hares. I plan on doing more of them because I think they're so cute, plus they're a fun stitch.
