Finished... and Framed!

Framing by House of Stitches, LaPorte, Indiana

It’s been over five years since I’ve had anything framed. I knew as I was working on this piece that I would get it framed when I had finished stitching it, and so the framing of this piece was my birthday gift to myself. I had another frame in mind when I went to House of Stitches, but they no longer stocked the frame, so when I saw this frame, I thought it was perfect for the piece. Normally, I would get a piece matted when I get it framed, but the frame and the stitched piece itself was sufficient – I didn’t think a mat was necessary in this instance.

I must say that I’m really happy with how it turned out, and it’s now hanging on a wall in the living room in my new apartment.
