Orphan frame find!

I was by Hobby Lobby this week and found some more orphan frames at 90% off. I bought 16.5 linear feet of frame for $36.12. The regular price would have been $361.20.

The two larger frames had stretcher bars in them for canvas. Stretcher bars don't have rabbets on the back, but this is no problem when you have a DH who has a router. So, by pulling the stretcher bars out of the frames, I ended up with five frames. Three are nicely stained and detailed, and the stretcher bars can be painted. I just love it when that happens!

And yes, I did get to start "Texas Longhorn" last night. I'm a happy stitcher!

Way to go! Ever since you told me about orphan frames, I always look for them when I go to Hobby Lobby.
