A Framed Finish

I finished this needlework back in June 2010, but I finally have finished framing it. Closeups of the stitching can be found on my June 12th post.

My framing was a bit of a “cheat”, but I love the way it turned out. Wish all of my pieces could look as nice! It is impossible to find a ready made square frame. The fnished needlework is 6 inches by 6 inches. One day I happened upon a sale at the store with framed art pieces for half off. I managed to find this frame for $10. The insides were quite glued together, but I carefully did away with the “ready made photo” and redid it to use for my Sophia’s Sampler. Just great….don’t you think? Will have to look for more finds like this!

Amities, Averyclaire

    The framing looks great! What a deal you found. I used to be able to find square frames at my local lns, but those days are gone. I’ll have to remember to keep my eye open for this kind of thing.

    It is just beautiful, Averyclaire, and I am so sorry I missed taking a picture of it last Monday for the HEG blog. Please forgive me!

    Your framing is beautiful! Like Sue said, definitely not a cheat, but a smart way of doing your framing–saving $$ towards more framing! 😉
