FRAMED ~ ~ ~

This is what Sonny has been up to on his Christmas break and this last week!  Building new frames to sell!  These are the small ones with a 9" x 11" working area (perfect for those small projects that won't fit on your larger framer),  they sell for $95 and remember, they fold flat,  like the stack at the right, for travel!  These are made out of walnut, oak and sycamore!  There is a big one made of walnut and one of cherry ~ the rest are maple or sycamore and are $135.00.  When you're ready, give us a call and set up a time to try one!

I've been hooking yesterday and today!  And watching Lifetime ~ that's a great day when I can just do what I want!!  I finished the little snowman mat and have hooked almost the whole center of the 1668 Geometric that I started in November.  And, I actually got out my little gathering of things for the next challenge and have pulled some wools to get started on that!!!  The deadline is the 20th ~ holy crow ~ is that 11 days from now?  Anybody who knows me, knows that I don't have a very good concept of time!  I better get cracking!

It's a beautiful snowy, sunshiny day here in Ohio ~ a great day for hooking ~ and it would be a good day for cooking something yummy!  I'll have to think about that!  Have fun!

Sonny's frames look wonderful. And how great that they fold down for travel! Don't forget to show us your Finished rug.
It is snowing here also. I have baked beans in the oven - it's a comfort-food kind of day.

OHHH do you ship? Of course I have to save my money first!! I have a large frame, (my first ever, have always used a quilting hoop) and I find this frame sort of bulky and cumbersome. I am really having trouble doing turns, such as for cats paws etc, even though the frame rotates 360. Am thinking a smaller one for my lap might work better and allow me to turn it easier?

Yes, it was a great day for hooking. Too bad I was gone all day :(
How's about showing us your rug progress?
Hugs :)

Wow, those are beautiful frames! Sonny does very nice work; does he make shelves and things for your house too?
It's cold and we have a LOT of snow here and more on the way.....I am soooo ready for spring!

Catching up on a few of your posts. The frames are great. And I totally agree that the smaller size is great for travelling. Have you shipped any to Canada - any idea of cost?

Had to tell you that the beer belts post made me laugh out loud. How much fun is that!!!

And your new chairs are so cheery - you just couldn't have a bad time sitting in one, I'm sure.

Your guy makes beautiful frames. Too bad I have four already and have sworn to not buy another until I sell at least one. Those small ones look good and that is the size I don't have. All my frames are much bigger.

It looks like it wants to snow here and it did just up the road some. It's wet and 38 degrees and I am staying inside.

hi Alice,

I love my "Sonny Frame" !! Hmmmm I'm liking this smaller size too! Might need one of those! Enjoyed all your pics and musings too . . . . We took our Christmas down too . . . But I still have a little tree up with only orange slices . . . Trying to keep a little Christmas alive :-)

May 2011 be good to you!!
