Framed pieces from Jill Rensel


Jill sent me some photos of the pieces she's framed for me. They should ship out Monday. I am so excited!

The first piece is my biggie, The Awakening by Heaven and Earth Designs. Click to get a bigger pic so you can see Jill's amazing painting on the mats. She's a true artist.

The second piece is Castle Sampler by Teresa Wentzler. This is the piece I stitched on before and after Logan was born. I actually took it to the hospital but didn't get to stitch on it (drat). I remember stealing a few minutes here and there while recovering in bed. Where there's a will, there's a way!

Jill has certainly done the pieces justice, and I can't wait to see them in person. If they're this gorgeous in photos, they'll be even better in person!

These are so beautiful. My son asked if the top one was a painting!

Both pieces are stunning - but OMG The Awakening - it looks amazing!!! Jill really did the piece justice with her gorgeous painting to extend the piece. WOW!! You are going to be so thrilled when they arrive!

Wow, she is gifted. I remember seeing a bunch of her work when I lived near Shepherds Bush.

The Awakening looks amazing. I remember watching your progress on that, you are gifted as well.

Enjoy them, they are stunning :)

Both works are magnificent! In stitching as well as framing! But the framing is very lovely - the colours of the mats and the detail of the frame designs suit each piece so well :) The Awakening looks like she's going step out of the frame any minute, thanks to the mat painting, and I adore the way the green swirls echo your TW sampler! I've never seen anyone paint a mat like that before, but both are wonderful works of art! You should be very proud :)
