Framed Needlework

This is like an appendix to the tutorials that I just posted.  I thought I'd share images of a few of the cross stitch projects that I've framed myself using the methods I've just outlined.

All of these have won at least a blue (first place) ribbon at our county fair. A couple have also won Best of Section and Best of Show.

Happy Stitching!

These are absolutely beautifully framed. I am lucky as my brother in law is doing the framing for me, but reading your tutorial I might give it a try myself next time.
