"Blue Cross Stitch Sampler."

Hello,

I now am in possession of my framed cross stitch. The framers I originally planned to take it to was closed on the day so I went up the road to another one. Very very happy with the framing. We had a cricket bat framed by the framers a few years ago so we knew that they did a good job.


I had forgotten how hard it is to photograph cross stitch, even using the "behind glass"setting on my camera. Making sure the light doesn't catch the glass and their are no reflections showing on the photo's.


I want to send a big thank you to the anonymous blogging Angel who sent me the Aida cloth.


Here is a close up of the frame. Another heirloom to add to the wall of Samplers.

Happy days.
Bev C

Bev it looks really good, well done, the framing really sets off the design, whilst having an understated style of its own...
