Ever since I finished stitching them I've been saving birthday and Christmas money towards getting them stretched and framed.
This weekend, I finally picked up the second one from the framers and I now have both hung up on the wall of our bedroom. Yay!
It's costly, but always so beautiful when a large piece like this is professionally stretched and framed. Smaller pieces I usually frame myself, but I'm afraid to try stretching something this large. Plus, have you ever noticed that cross stitch pictures are never made to fit standard size frames?
The matte board on both is a dark green and the frame is a dark brown woodgrain.
