Road Trip to Stitch Shops!

Hello Friends~

Yesterday, JoAnn R, Joann H, Rhonda and myself took a trip to pick up some framed pieces. In Strongsville, OH we went to Just Stitching where their favorite framer, Bonnie works. JoAnn had 3 finished and JoAnn H had one. As you can see by the pictures, Bonnie does a wonderful job, and she has many choices to choose from. We stopped and ate at some cool cafe, the food was delish! Then we traveled to another shop, Crafty Ewe, and let me tell you, the fabric selection they have at this shop is like no other, I was in fabric heaven!!! I got some linen and also a roll-a-frame, I have been wanting to try one for a while. I usually hand hold when I stitch, but sometimes use a q-snap, and the bigger samplers are sometimes hard to hand hold~

Hope you have a Great Week~

This is JoAnn R framed sampler, Sun and Moom by Scarlett Letter, you can's see it in the photo, but the frame sides are very deep, and it is so unique looking, I wanted to take it home with me!!!

This is JoAnn H framed sampler, Ann Pennsylvania Peacock, by Little by Little! It is so beautiful and the frame looks wonderful, JoAnn's house is filled with amazing samplers. She gives many of her samplers her daughter, Bethany~~~lucky woman!!!

This is JoAnn R framed sampler JesseyLambert, an English Sampler from Scarlett Letter!!! This is so sweet and the frame is amazing!!! This was an exciting day for JoAnn, picking up 3 framed pieces~

This is JoAnn R framed Isabella Johnstone, the frame is so pretty!!! Wish it was mine!!

Really nice frames on those great pieces. Sounds like a fun road trip. I'm making note of those shops and checking for antique or flea markets in that area. Thanks!

I absolutely love all that framing. I wish that I lived closer so I could have my samplers framed there. In fact I just finished Sun and Moon a few days ago and would love to have it framed the same way as JoAnn's. I really love it!

Kim my dear friend,

Thank you for putting my stitching in the "spotlight." Seeing my finished work on your blog is a real "stitchers high." As we always say the pictures never do them justice. If I have to say so myself they are awesome. I am happy and proud to have them in my home.

Many an afternoon has been enjoyed by a family, bonding over the discussion of beauty supply strongsville. Remarkably beauty supply strongsville is heralded by shopkeepers and investment bankers alike, leading many to state that it is important to remember that ‘what goes up must come down.’ Inevitably feelings run deep amongst socialists, obviously
