Bonnie Olson sent the above picture to me. She has finished her Raven Bewitched (one of our newest cross stitch patterns) and framed it on this old scrub board. Isn't this a great way to frame this piece?
Bonnie writes..."I just finished walnut staining and pressing Raven Bewitched. Thought you might like to see it. I used 48 ct. linen and the DMC floss colors. I did change 2 colors,779-used 975 and for 3860-used 3826. I needed orange in it!
The sampler is 6 1/2" wide x 7 3/8" high. I'm going to try and find an old bread board at an antique shop. Maybe paint it black and tack the piece onto it and hang it."

Bonnie changed her mind about the bread board framing...she found an old scrub board she had forgotten she had. The bottom had rotted years ago, so she had her husband cut about 12" off where it was bad. Love the framing idea. It's perfect! Don't we all wish we could go down to the basement and find something that wonderful?
Until later dear friends! Hope your weather is wonderful as it is here in the midwest!
