I chose a distressed lilac colored frame for K1 and I'm happy that I did, it really pulls the shades of violet to the forefront over the strong blues in the piece.
And I'm making good progress on K2, about a third stitched it's bright jewel tones are making it a joyful design to work with.
Spring is just now making its presence known here on Gracewood with leaves emerging on everything to just the hint of buds appearing. Several days ago we had our first good spring storm come through and I taped a few minutes of it from our porch. I hope you'll enjoy the bit I captured on video.
