European Bistro & Paris Market Framing

Almost forgot to share this with you all... I picked up the framed European Bistro and Paris Market on the weekend as well and I am super pleased with them. They really look like paintings until you get up nice and close. They have been done in matching frames and mats and look great:
 Sorry for the flash reflection...
The frame is a dark wood with a pale gold inside line - it looks brighter in the picture than it does in real life. The mats are a bright cream with a dark grey inside. The mats go right up to the edge of the stitching which I quite like too.

At the moment they're in my hallway where my Fish City and Noah's Submarine used to be. It is taking a bit of getting used to having these smaller designs in those spots but I'm sure it will be fine once I get used to it. That also gives me another dilemma, where do I now put my under-water designs? They're on the floor in the spare room at the moment but I'll have to get around to putting some hooks in the wall next weekend (hopefully!).

Well, I hope you all like them as much as I do...
Happy Stitching,


  1. I have done 2 Dimensions kits and never will again. But I love yours! Mine either had cheap floss or ran out of fibers. But oh my gosh - I love these two pieces tremendously. And I've wondered about those miniature stockings. Been thinking of getting them for years. Now that I've seen yours all on the tree, I might just get those and get started - maybe by next Christmas they'll be all done. Thx for sharing!

  2. Woo hoo! They look gorgeous. I hadn't realised you had stitched the matching pair. European Bistro is fabulous too.

  3. There lovely. The frames are beautiful. I love them.

  4. They look stunning. The frame definitely sets off all your hard work.

  5. Oh Kerrie! They are so gorgeous!!

  6. Well done! I've been tracking your progress on Paris Market, as I have the kit myself, and wanted to see it done by someone before I start! Hopefully I will start soon. I hope I can finish mine in the same amount of time you finished -- your progress really has given me hope and enthusiasm :-) Enjoy your framed beauties.

  7. Wel done! they look amazing all framed up :o)
