They've Been Framed!

This is a big deal as I sometimes never get around to framing important things - more important than this!

I think they will look even prettier when I get the walls painted a soft green.

I am pleased with my Rhubarb Pie/Crisp doilies and cross. Tatting them was very pleasant and now looking at them will please me for many years.

They look lovely! The soft green walls will compliment them nicely!

Karl and/or Madeline said...

Oh how pretty. Great job of framing. They will look pretty against a pale green wall. Madeline

Well done! The pale green walls sound very nice and will compliment these works of art perfectly.

They are lovely. I've never thought about framing my doilies or other tatting for that matter. But then, mine is not as colourful as yours and would not make a good picture.

Note to self - start experimenting with colours!

Marty said...

How delightful! The frames you've chosen certainly allow the tatting to shine rather than being overpowered by a frame. Please do post a picture when you get the walls painted, too!

Very, very pretty. What a super collection to show off.

Clyde said...

What a beautiful series of tatting. I can't wait to see them hanging on the soft green wall I think it will be the perfect colour match.

Your tatted framed art looks pretty. Oh, I see now, a pale green wall, yes, I think that will look nice, too! I hope we get to see them again once the walls are painted. Are you going to use the colors in the tatting as a point of reference for the choosing the paint colors?

Those frames are such lovely work, with or without those pale green walls.

Thanks Diane. Know a painter?
Thank you Madeline. Know a painter?
Thanks Lady Shuttle Maker. Same question!
Thank you Jon. Yes, you need to be framing your work, color or not.
Thank you Marty. The frames were VERY cheap, but I thought they would do the trick. I will post a picture when I FIND A PAINTER!
Thank you Jane. You know I love to show off!
I owe you thanks Clyde. Your design really pulled them together.
I'm glad you like them TattingChic. Yes, I will use the colors in the doilies to decide on the paint for the walls. I also want it to compliment my bedding.
Thank you Dantatter. I'm glad you like them like they are in case I can't FIND A PAINTER!
Did I mention that I need a painter? LOL

This is exactly what I had in mind when I am able to do a doily. But first thing, I will do one (not so big) for a friend who will help me to edit my master's project.
