What a talented bunch we have here. I love the check fabric with the Santa, Holly.

I enjoy x-stitching, but go in spurts. I did pics for all the grandkids, then Jeff framed them. We have a little frame workshop in the basement. Jeff was thinking ahead to retirement to have something to do. Mainly for his drawings. He loves to do masted ships with all the rigging. Hasn't done an original one in years though. Teaching got in the way. Anyway, we are strictly word-of-mouth now and always seem to get jobs when needed. My brother hooked us up with a shop that was going out-of-business and bought some equipment and some moulding and mats. Actually, Jeff likes to mill his own moulding instead. I do some of the finishing on the frames to make them look like leather, etc. Another man in town did this on the side and after he died, his wife sold us some of his stuff and she has referred many people to us and we get repeat customers.

I'd love to try new things.
