This is a Joint project with my wife Gloria. She is an excellent quilter and loves or maybe lives to sew. This picture measures 26” x 31” and has taken her many hours to complete it is embroidered on a machine that she has (or maybe I should say that it is one of several machines that she has). We haven’t done a joint project before and this one was fun. The frame is White Oak and was realative simple to make. The finish is walnut stain and numerous coats of wipe on poly.

all comments are welcomed, thanks for looking!

Merry Christmas to all LJ’s!!!

Nice looking frame – and the embroidery is really well done! Doing this as a joint project makes even more special.

Beautiful Chuck and Gloria. It’s really nice when we can collaborate with our spouses on projects, each adding our own talents to the end result.

Merry Christmas!

Thanks Guys for the nice words. We had fun working together, I think it is the first time for us to work on a project together for our hobbies. Like all couples we have worked together on projects in the yard and house. It was enjoyable.

Thanks for the nice words!!

Nice frame Chuck and a nice piece of quilting by Gloria. Great team effort. I know what you mean with the embroidery machines, mine has more than I have power tools,
