Quick cover-up

A bad spot on the kitchen wall was crying out to be covered with something. So I did a quick stitch of a section of "The Cafe" by Country Cottage Needleworks that would fit in a small frame I had. Not the world's greatest framing job, but I wasn't in the mood to go more slowly and carefully. The photo makes the frame look bowed, but it is not in reality. It serves the purpose for which it was intended, but it's not one of my favorite finishes. I do like the little menu board though. That was such a cute touch by the designer.

This design is very pretty stitched! I'm sure your wall is much happier having this hanging on it rather than a bad spot showing!

Wonder if that would work on DH? "I must get this stitched to cover up the bad place on the wall, dear!"
