Window!

I worked on 6 stitcheries for ever and finally got them done and put into this window frame this past weekend. Chris sanded the frame and took all the old caulk off the windows. As he was doing this he broke one of the window panes so he had to order new glass. Since he was getting one he decided he should just replace all of them. They were so old and glass wasn't that much. He decided it would be easier than trying to scrape all of the paint and caulk off of the old ones.

We base coated the window antique white. Then put a coat of crackle medium on. When that dried we put the top coat on. It is burgundy. It turned out just the way we wanted it to.

Chris put all of the stitcheries on card board and attached them to the window. I'm glad I did snowmen so it can stay up all winter. To see a closer view of the stitcheries click HERE, HERE and HERE.

Oh Laurie,I had NO IDEA you were talented in so many areas! I love this - the whole window, the stitching, all of it! And, I saw the one you made for your Mom- amazing! I love the innocence of the pieces- and the AdoRaBle faces..
Have a fun week-end and stay warm!

What a great idea, and you crafted it so beautifully! The whole wall is perfected with the addition of your "window"... What do you have planned for Spring/Summer?
