Bookworm Keeps At It

One of the most enjoyable aspects of this hobby is matching the project to the frame. My wife found this pair for cheap and the project inspiration was all too obvious:

Those patterns and the frame match SO well!

Nice!!

Awesome Duck Hunt frames and stitches. I love picking up unusual frames from charity shops, always have more character to them :)

This was my first attempt with plastic canvas (white, 14 ct, Darice brand). It worked fairly well, but required some meticulous x-acto knife-work. I decided to make some FFVI magnets, but this picture of the washing process best represents the project as a whole. I've titled it Seafood Soup:

Many thanks to blackmageheart for the inspiration (and the patterns!).
