Finally. Wow, what an ordeal. I had my heart set on this particular frame from the minute I saw it. I placed the order and patiently waited. It came in warped and not very burled in some areas. We reordered it, and it is much better, BUT ,I'm not too happy with the way the veneer is pieced. I checked with a few places that carry this same molding and they all told me the same thing. It's because of the veneer not always being in long enough strips. I'm not sure I buy into that, but I've ordered burled frames four different times, and they always came in the same way. Over all, I love the way it looks and when it's hanging with the others, I won't notice it as much. The Adam and Eve is more than halfway done. I'm on the verse now, and I'll post a photo soon. Today I plan to move things around in my craft room. I have a whole wall that I hope to fill with samplers from top to bottom. I need to reorganize things a bit before that can happen. Poor Isabella Brackin is hanging there all by herself, and she's longing for some company.
I managed to squeeze in some painting awhile back. This set is on my Etsy.
