Shores of Hawk Run Hollow Framed and Hung

Finally! I went and got my finished Shores of Hawk Run Hollow framed, woohoo! So, I went to Joann's to look into getting it framed. When we measured it we realized it could fit into a standard size frame (18" x 24") That saved me a bizillion dollars getting it framed. I didn't find a frame at Joann's I liked however. After going to the always awesome Craft Warehouse, I found a great frame for it. They even stretched it and mounted it in the frame for me for a fee of $23.00. How can you beat that? I was so excited.
I went back on forth between a black and white frame. I finally settled on black, it'll be in "style" forever, and the blocks are all framed in black.
I hung it in my living room, since I've got the beach theme going on. It matches perfect, I am so happy with how it turned out. Who else has finished their Hawk Run Hollow projects? They are awesome :D

Awesome finish Heather! I love the frame you chose, and I'm glad to know that it will fit in a standard size frame! That will save me a lot too. I'll have to start keeping my eyes open for a good one.

Heather, it is just beautiful. Looks great on your wall and I agree that the black frame was a good choice. I have to tell you, seeing this cross stitch on your blog is what got me back into cross stitching!

Absolutely gorgeous! What an accomplishment that is. I have been "stuck" on block 6 of VoHRH forever...I need to set aside time to stitch on it, maybe this will motivate me.

Job well done!
