VoHRH Framed!!!

I got this back from my framer earlier this week. Didn't it come out gorgeous? I don't usually put my pieces under glass but I did this one which made it very difficult to take a pic of it. I have so many windows in my house that I couldn't get away from all the reflections. So this is the best pic I could get.

I haven't done much stitching. One of my daughters went on a college trip this week with her high school and she became very ill and ended up being hospitalized for 2 days, 1500 miles away from us!!!! She will be home tonight, I can't wait to get my arms around her.
I've been tagged by Noreen. Here are the rules:
1. Once you are tagged, link back to the person who tagged you.
2. Post THE RULES on your blog.
3. Post 7 weird or random facts about yourself on your blog.
4. Tag 7 people and link to them.
5. Comment on their blog to let them know they have been tagged.
Here are my 7 things:
1. I am left handed, but I do everything with my right hand except eat and write.
2. I need to know details. Example: When my husband tells me someone called, I need to know what time they called and exactly what they said (this drives my husband crazy).
3. I have a fear of heights (even a Ferris Wheel is too high for me).
4. I can't swim in water over my head, my feet have to be able to touch the ground.
5. My husband thinks I have ugly feet (I like my feet).
6. I never started drinking coffee until I was in my 30's, and today I can't live without it.
7. I like to dip potatoe chips in chocolate ice cream.
Thanks for the many comments that you guys leave on my blog. They are always very thoughtful and I appreciate them.

I have trouble spacing my postings, can anyone help me out? When I type my post I have spaces between my paragraphs but once I post it they disappear.

Wow - VoHRH looks fantastic in its frame! You'll definately be able to hang it prominently in your home.

You must have had a rough time with your daughter being ill and so far away! I hope she's recovering well and arrives home safely.

VoHRH looks great. Picture came out good really not much reflection. It gives me hope of getting mine done.

What I was told about paragraph spacing is to go into the HTML code part when you are composing and put a p between <> where you want a new paragraph to start. It has worked for me. I know how annoying it can be for you to type it in paragraphs and when it is published it is all run together. I usually do it right at the end of the previous paragraph. There is usually some other codes there, but I put it first. Hope this helps.

Wow, it looks wonderful all framed up!

I am left handed too! I use scissors with my right hand, but mostly I do everything with my left :)

I like dipping French fries in chocolate ice cream, must be the sugar/salt yumminess!

Sally said...

Oh wow your VoHRH looks stunning!

Pumpkin said...

WOW! WOW! WOW! Gorgeous :o) You must be proud.

Oh no! I remember getting sick when I was REALLY far from home and it was terrible. I hope she gets home soon :o)

I always type my posts up in WordPad first and then just copy and paste. It automatically spaces the paragraphs for me.

Carla said...

oh yes!!! it's GORGEOUS!!!!!

sugardoll said...

Your framed piece is gorgeous. The frame compliments the design very well. Congratulations!!!

I have to laugh at the fact about the hubby part, i do the same thing, like when there is a commercial and i don't get it i ask hubby what they mean or what they were about, and everytime the commercial comes up, i ask over again. He would be like "you ask me everytime you see that commercial" LOL It drives him nuts as well.

Hope your baby gets well soon!!

VOHRH is stunning framed. The red is just perfect.
How stressful for you to have your daughter ill so far from you. No wonder you want to hug her till it hurts.
Hey, I am left handed too and I am afraid of heights. I don't swim well because I don't like my face in the water.
You sure we aren't related LOL LOL

VoHRH looks fantastic! What a beautiful piece. Hope you've got a special place all picked out for hanging.

I laughed when I saw that you needed to know details. I didn't realize it until my hubby pointed it out to me recently but I do the same thing whenever there's a phone call.
