I finished a couple more projects yesterday and today.  I finished the 13th block in the Kick Back and Stitch - Geometric Series that I have been working on for a very long time.  I finished the "Frozen Lake."  While I was working on it Liz's daughter Michelle asked if she could have it.  Well since there are 16 of them I thought why not.  She is going off to the university in a few weeks and her birthday is at the end of the month.  So I finished it for her.  Then I had to decide how to frame it .  Well Friday, Liz and I were killing time before our movie "Charlie St. Cloud" (a three hankie movie) at Hobby Lobby and found these floating frames that were on sales.  So I bought one to try for Michelle's gift.  It worked wonderfully.  See.

 I like how it looked so much that I decided to frame my other ones the same way.  The only difference is that I was going to frame 4 at a time.  This solved my problem "What do I do with them when they are finished?"  I think I am going to frame them seasonally this year.

The other project that I finished was the Erica Michael's freebie for August.  I had the large flower and g-u-s-t finished Friday.  On Saturday, Michelle asked me to ride with her to Paul's Pastry in Picayune, MS to pick up her birthday cake.  I said yes.  So, I stitched on August while she drove (it was 1 hr one way).  I really like this one.

Now I am off to bed.  Thanks for stopping by.
