Back from the Framer

Summer at the Shore is back from the framer and it’s magnificent.  Everything I imagined it to be.

I work with an amazing framer, Pat,  at River Road Gallery here in Wilton.  I come up with ideas and she makes them happen.  She popped into the shop one day to pick up some threads, and I said “Pat, I have this great idea.  I want to frame this piece so that it looks like your looking out a window at it.”  She had a pensive look on her face and I could see the wheels spinning in her head.


This frame was custom made.


I wanted a ledge on it so that it looked like the moulding around a window.


 I love playing at the gallery.   So many colors, shapes and sizes to choose from.  It’s like a needlepoint shop, except that I don’t have to work there.  Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE owning the shop.  But I do miss shopping for needlepoint like I used to.  I certainly do buy a lot of canvases, but with great power comes great responsibility.

Details will be coming soon for our retreat this year.  I’m just working on finalizing all of the details and then registration will be open.

    What a terrific idea. After framing projects for many ages I have become bored with just dark wood square frames. I’ll save that idea for sure. And by the way, the stitching is great too.
