Angela ~ St Nicholas Joins His Fellow Bishops

Here's St Nicholas framed and hanging out with his fellow bishops.  If you see any dust just remember it is a protective covering.

I found the frame after looking at & measuring about 50 at the thrift store that has a large selection.  Most that looked right were 11 x 14 inches and I needed it narrower than that.  I finally found this one I thought would be too plain, but I really like how it lets the colors in the embroidery stand out.  It's vintage too which I always like.

I'm taking the rest of this week off from stitching while my shoulder continues to heal.  Not sure what I did but I am thinking it may be a pinched nerve.  Ice bags and aspirin and not reaching forward help a lot, but hard to do at work.  At least it's my left shoulder.

My next UFO project is likely the St John needlepainting.

Beautiful finished project Angela. I love seeing your collection of St. Nicks. I have a few I bring out for Christmas, but it's nice seeing a permanent display.

I used to put them away after Christmas but a couple of years ago I just left them out and decided to leave them out.

Thank you so much! I feel really good at getting all these UFOs done.

It's so lovely to see the finished St. Nicholas. He looks so good with his cohorts. I look forward to seeing John finished, too.

What an accomplishment. It looks great.

The frame is not overpowering the subject, which I like, and the colour of the frame goes very well with it. Very good choice Angela, what a great find that was.
Your St. John needle painting looks to be rather a lot of work, but with your determination and perseverance lately I have no doubt that you will achieve your goal.
