I took CDC to be framed on Friday. I'm trying a new (to me) framer. He's been in the area for years and Merry from work finally convinced me to take CDC to him. What amazed me was the price. Less than $45.00 total to frame it. I didn't have any mats put on it but I was still shocked at the price. When he told me I asked him if that included the labor. Yep, it was bottom line. Depending on how I like the finished product, I may have found a new framer.
I hope everyone out there has a blessed Thanksgiving. The Lord has given me so many blessings and I'm thankful for them every day. Happy Thanksgiving!

It takes 3-8 business days to get the necessary paperwork done. It's 3 days if it's marked urgent. So course the orthopedic place did not mark it as such. So they asked me if I thought I needed the boot real soon. I told them I was walking around on 2 fractured toes, what did they think?!! Needless to say I was so frustrated I was in tears on the way home. Then I remembered that a friend from work had worn one several months ago. I called and the end result is that I'm borrowing hers until mine gets approved. At least now I don't feel like I'm a prisoner, not being able to go anywhere.
The upside to all of this is that the enforced rest caused me to stitch a lot more than usual and I've made great progress on CDC. You can see by the picture that I'm almost done. I plan on getting more done this afternoon. Maybe I can even hope to finish it this week. Dave is traveling again, so I stitch more in the evenings than I do when he's home. That's my silver lining in all of this.
