We gather together
One of the engineers where I work showed me a puzzle he had put together and framed. I'm not a fan of framed puzzles, but his work was beautiful. I offhand mentioned that if he ever got into the business of framing, I had several pieces of stitchery that I needed framed.
So together we are working on this. He is practicing his carpentry skills, and I pin the piece to the foam board. This is the first finished project. He says there are flaws in his work; I am one thread off in having this piece centered. However, I think it looks good just as it is.
This was stitched on Aida cloth, and it's the only piece I have on Aida. The rest are done on linen, and that will be a challenge for me.
