Lyrebird Framed

I collected my Lyrebird from the framers yesterday, together with his friend the Cockerel.The Lyrebird was my oldest UFO at 42 years of age, finally finished! The full story is here.

I took him down to Otley market to get framed together with the cockerel that I stitched when I was 7. I usually get my embroidery’s framed elsewhere but I thought I would give the market man a chance with these. I didn’t really want the expense of my usual framer, they do a superb job but it would have been pricey for what is effectively a child’s embroidery.

I collected them yesterday and I’m delighted with them, the mounting isn’t to the same standard as my usual framer, but it was probably a third of the price. I will hang them in my sewing room once I redecorate.  Please excuse the reflections, I still haven’t got the hang of photographing a framed picture!

About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!
