Framed Cross Stitch!

Framed Cross Stitch!

Mother’s Day is coming soon and one thoughtful daughter stitched her mommy a heart cross stitch. We framed it in a white frame with a dark blue mat. We hand stretched the cross stitch onto an acid free backing board. Happy Mother’s Day!

Framed Indonesian Fabric Applique!

Framed Indonesian Fabric Applique!

This is an unusual (and quite large) piece… an Indonesian applique on fabric. Hand stitched with colorful threads, it is on heavy linen. We hand stitched it onto a black linen matboard and used a contemporary black beveled moulding. We used spacers to keep the glass off the artwork. This piece measures about 45″ tall x 28″ wide. It is fabulous!

Here is a neat little piece of needle work art, we framed it in a nice hand-finished olive veneer moulding (made in Italy!) The entire thing only measures about 16″ x 10″. Note the fantastic texture in the frame!

A customer found these old cross stitches at her Grandma’s house and we popped them out of the old frames and put them in some old looking new frames! We used a ticked linen matting and hand finished Italian mouldings. They turned out so nicely! And would you look at all of the colors and textures that these frames come! These little things measure about 14″ x 16″.
