K1 Framed, K2 Progress & a Gracewood Spring Video

K1 Framed

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.

The camera is making the red more orange than it really is, but the other shades of Rainbow Gallery Splendor silk floss I'm using are pretty true.

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.

Wherever you are I hope you are enjoy the changing season, Spring or Fall if you are down under!


  1. K1 looks awesome!! Love the colors and the frame looks perfect for it. K2 is looking good too.

  2. Thanks, Faith! I'm afraid I'm weak for shades of violet, the next design will be another Nouveau panel with lots of it :)
