'Sunshine and Flowers' Sampler Framed!

And here it is, back from the professional framer's, complete with two mounts and a nice wooden finish frame.  It cost me £43 to have this done and would have been a bit more had I not prepared and laced it up myself.  Up close, it would've been better to have used an off-white board to lace it around, as the pure white is a little too stark, but it doesn't show too much - and I daresay next to no-one will even notice it at all.  Just my perfectionism again.=)

Actually, I collected it a good week ago, but I didn't manage to get a photo even as good as this one (and it isn't the best, I know....) for a few days.

As I type, it's in mum's room in a care home near Leeds ready to be taken back with her to her house on Monday.=)  Glad to both see this project come to final fruition (as well as to see that mum liked it!) and to get mum out of residential homes and back into her own.

I realised that I also haven't shown you the completed Lizzie*Kate 'Autumn' button-up piece and that the last update was 'at about 85%'.  Just need to re-press it and then I can share it with you.  In the meantime, here's hoping I can get something done on my second needle painting piece as I've been out of action the past few days.

Have a good weekend!

Well done - it is looking lovely. I can see why you might feel the white showing between the bars is a bit stark, but it will help everything else remain crisp, whereas it you had chosen something more subtle it might have made the fabric look slightly grubby, which would have been much worse...

All the hard needle work resulted in a beautiful sampler. I am so pleased you had it professionally framed and this heirloom will keep well LONG into the future.
How nice that your mother can move back into her own home!
