The Frame Wall Inches Along

I finally hung the final frame on the wall in our dining room this weekend. Many of them are still empty but I’m one step closer to calling it complete.

There’s a small hole in the middle that I think will be filled perfectly by a 4″ embroidery hoop just as soon as I pick one up and stitch something to fill it. Is a simple monogram too predictable? In the photo below it looks like the mirror is crooked. I’m going to have to look into that.

Some of the things I find at thrift stores are very, uh, interesting. On the agenda this week is ordering prints to fill all these frames. I’d be lying if I said I was sad to see this little play on words go.

I hope you each had a wonderful weekend. We spent time with friends, hung around the house, watched our beloved Tigers lose and ate our feelings the next day. I’m back on the healthy eating wagon today despite all the yummy treats still lingering in our kitchen. I’ve got a ton on my to do list today so I can’t imagine I’ll have time for any more emotional eating!

  1. It looks good. (My frame wall pictures are all stacked everywhere as we are getting ready to paint.) It might just be me (and my little bit of OCD) , but I don’t think I’d like a little circle or hoop thrown into that mix. Why not frame the embroidery? (It will stay cleaner that way too!). Perhaps Goodwill would have a small frame. Or you can repurpose one you have. Or even one that small wouldn’t cost much (and especially with a coupon from somewhere).

      I do have a teeny tiny frame that I found will going through some old things recently, but I actually kind of love the idea of mixing in a round shape. If it looks weird I can always switch it out, but I think I’ll try the embroidery hoop first.
