For quite a while, I have been thinking about reframing an old cross stitch piece. I stitched this back in the 80's and have always loved the piece, but the frame just made it look unappealing. Here it is with the old frame.
Please ignore the ripples in the fabric. In my haste to put this into it's new frame, I ripped it out of the old one when it occured to me that I should take a before and after photo! Now, in all it's glory, here is the same sampler in it's new, updated frame. Of course, I also took this picture before lacing it back into the frame. I'm so impatient1
My next dilemma concerns where I want to hang this piece....it's in a very sunny place. I usually frame my pieces without glass (unless it will be in a bathroom), but I think in this case that I am going to use museum glass and spacers on the piece. Museum glass blocks more than 95% of the harmful UV glass which is a good thing! I hope this will be the right decision and I can always remove the glass if I absolutely hate it!
