Yesterday I had a bit of a crafty day, doing little projects I have wanted to do for ages but never took the time to do, Here is one of them, I repainted my cross stitch frame and I love how it came out. Looking back at it I was wondering why on earth I chose to paint it gold all those years ago. Its funny how our tastes change as we get older.
So now its a pretty aqua, I sanded it back gently to give it a bit of worn look. Now I have a question for you, the painted finish is very dull and I would like it to have a gentle shine so what can I use to make this happen, do I need to seal it? I think it would a whole nicer if it had a professional finish. Any help would be great.
In more exciting news from the Land of Lizzie the Quilter, My latest design has landed on the cover of the latest issue of Homespun Magazine. My Magazine arrived on Friday and boy was I excited when I opened it and saw my design staring right at me.
My project is a pouch and actually the magazine have photographed the back of the design but is fine but i think the front is much prettier.
Tiny little dresden blocks in my favourite fig tree fabrics. I loved making this project.
Beautiful photography as always.
Thankyou Homespun magazine you have made me so very happy and thankyou to all of you for reading my blog every week and giving me such encouraging comments.
