Shades of Autumn: Brazilian Embroidery

A couple days ago, I got back from my framer the brazilian embroidery project called "Shades of Autumn" designed by Delma Moore.
I really love what she has done with it. The mat and the frame brings out the embroidery very nicely and I am very pleased with the result.
Today Gracie was brought to the same framer (when you have a good one, you don't want to change as she does excellent work) and she should be ready in approximately 3 weeks give or take a few days.
Normally I have her put a glass over everything that she frames for me, but with Gracie we decided against it. I can't wait to see how the framing will turn out but I need to be patient :-)
Been working diligently on my needlepoint project called "Terra Rosa" designed by Elsa M. Parrish and it is coming along nicely. I will post photos a bit later when I have a little more done to it.

Love the choice of frame and the mount it brings outs the colours in your embroidery

Lovely work on both of these, P! First time I've been able to visit for more than a fortnight as I'm in Taiwan just now!=)

Love your brazilian embroidery picture. Perfect choice of mat and frame to compliment your work.

You do beautiful work. You must have a lot of patience.

I have never thought of myself as having lots of patience, but maybe I do (big grin).

I enjoy brazilian embroidery a lot so time does fly away when I am having fun.
