I was actually gonna post this on my personal blog, because it's a craft project, and i've been posting progress pictures over there, but since it's very much shop related, i decided that it belongs here.
So what am i talking about here?
The shop open/closed sign, that's what!
I finally finished the sign that i have been working on for months.
We still don't have an actual shop sign, and we really don't plan on getting one, but now people will at least be able to see when we're open.

In progress
Nick got the idea for the bird cages, clever right?
Almost done
And closed:
It took me a while, but i finally found two antique frames in the exact same size, that fit the signs too (thank god we're smack in the middle of an antique neighborhood)
Bird detail
Deer detail

In the beginning i used a pattern, but the closed sign i pretty much made it up as i went along.
And considering that this is only my second cross-stitch project (the first finished one is this), i think it turned out pretty well.
Hope y'all like it!


  1. Åh, det er brilliant! Jeg venter spændt på det obligatoriske korsttingsbroderede Lucifer portræt, a.k.a. tronpuden. :-)

  2. De er såååå fine, Amalie!

    Jeg skal altså også have gang i det broderi-værk, mit kit har ligget og ventet på mig siden jul. :(
