I'm really pleased with this piece, but sad that its finished. It's like when you find a good book to read and you cannot put it down, but when you finish, it leaves a gap. That's how I feel about this piece probably because I enjoyed stitching it so much.
It's an irregular frame size, so I may have to get it professionally framed. (It will have a black frame)
It is going to hang in our snug room just as you go in the door so everyone can see it.
Even though I like this piece, I still don't think it captures the original style of these antique pictures. It would be nice to see one up close to get a 'feel' of how the stitched worked together. But they are scarce and rarely come up for sale in the UK.
I'm looking at doing another similar style one now, but need to tweak the chart somewhat to make it look more antique/vintage.
If anyone is interested in the above then I will post a link to the free chart.x
