I Have Been Framed

I just found out that I would not be leaving Minnesota anytime soon. I was depressed and then I received a call that brighten my day. A new friend, Theresa, said she was stopping by the hotel later that evening to show me something.
I have coffee every morning in a local coffee shop before work. Theresa comes in most mornings on her way to work or swimming. One morning I was knitting when she came in and we talked about knitting, crocheting and the fact that I spin and weave. She had never seen anyone spin so she asked if she could take pictures of me spinning. Theresa is a nurse and has a part-time framing business in her home. She loves to take photographs of people in natural settings doing everyday things then she frames and hangs the pictures in her shop as well as enters them in local shows.
To make a long story short, she asked me to bring my spinning wheel to the coffee shop because they had a fireplace and the place looks very homey. I am quite sure the shop employees were happy when we left because she moved their furniture all over the place to get good lighting. She brought her husband along to distract me so she could get pictures that were not staged. I actually got a lot of spinning done that night.
Approximately a week ago, Theresa, gave me a set of the pictures and extras for my son and daughter. Tonight, she came by the hotel to show me how she had framed the pictures.
I hate taking pictures, hope anyone that looks at them will just look at the wheel and the yarn.
