A Little Framing

Gentle Freinds, a while back I took a few things in for framing and have gotten one of them back....


... I finished this piece up about a year ago and thought it would be nice framed and hanging up.  The sampler is made up from the "Monthly Animals" by NickysCreations.   Stitched on 36ct "Sandpiper" and stitched in my conversion from the charted DMC to WDW.  The photo makes the frame a bit more shiny than it really is, I chose it because it is an old gold colour and not too bright.

It's the perfect frame! I love it. I am so glad you posted this....I have often wondered about how you've had something framed. To me, choosing a frame is harder than choosing/changing thread color or fabric. AND I am always second guessing whatever I finally decide on. This piece may be my all time favorite of yours. As my little grandbaby says "good job"!

BRAVO!!! It truly looks amazing. The gold frame pops the golden/yellow tones in this piece. Now I ask myself why in the heck have I never seen this design before! LOVE-LOVE-LOVE

This is fabulous! Mine are still in the to do pile as I am in a panic over the fact they are not all the same size and I don't know how to compensate - what was she thinking?! The frame is perfect.

The finished piece looks great. I love the old gold frame. "Old gold" is usually my preference when choosing a gold color.
