Captain's Inn Finished


I finished Captain's Inn by Little House Needleworks over the weekend. At first I was going to stitch a tall ship instead of the Captain's Inn sign, but then changed my mind again and stitched it as charted.

I spent some time this weekend looking for a frame for it, but didn't find what I was looking for. I don't want to do a custom frame, so I will just keep on looking. A standard 8 x 10 frame will work, it just has to be deep enough to accommodate the needlework, mounting and backing.
This was stitched on 28 count ivory jobelan fabric, with DMC and Gentle Arts Sampler Threads as recommended.

Great job - I really like this pattern!

I've had very good luck with ordering frames from www.pictureframes.com. You can order frames according to size and depth, and they're very nice.
