Well... the goal was to finish this by Christmas 2009...
a goal that I didn't QUITE meet - but I did FINISH - and that's the main thing!
Now that it's done, I will need to give it a gentle wash to remove any dirty marks and oils from my grubby little fingers... and then it's off to the framing shop.
The framing is always a really expensive process, and I've often thought that I should just learn to do it myself. But the results are so professional looking, that I've finally given in to just paying the price. Given the hundreds of hours (could it even be thousands of hours???) that I put into each embroidery, it's just not worth taking the risk.
If you're a local, and looking for a framer here in Sunbury... I can absolutely recommend the 'Art House Picture Framing and Gallery' here in town. The ladies there have such a keen eye for detail, and really focus on bringing your artwork to life - rather than just sticking with the latest trends, or the obvious choice. I've been using them for years and years, and would be reluctant to go anywhere else.
