Back from the Framer

Well, I got my aunt's gift back from the framer. I'm really happy with the way it turned out (sorry for the glare - without a flash, it was too dark, and I couldn't figure out how to avoid the glare).

You can't see it to clearly in the picture, but the framer put spacers between the turquoise mat and the yellow mat so that it looks a little more set back. I noticed after the fact that I never dotted the I in aquamarine.....oh well, that makes it "unique" right? And the other thing is I stitched it and finished last year, but I'm not giving it to her until this year. And the date in the corner says '09. I debated taking it out and changing it to '10, but figured I'll just put a note in there explaining that I finished it last year.....she'll probably think I meant to stitch it for last year's birthday (I really didn't!) but whatever.

Anyway thanks, for checking it out!

Very pretty, I love seeing things framed. I'm very neglectful on getting around to getting things framed, that's my goal this year to get everything framed!!! I'm sure she will love it/

That is gorgeous! The mat is so very close to the thread color. You did a wonderful job and the frame sets it off wonderfully. Congrats on the great stitching. I am sure your aunt will love it.

Looks beautiful. I don't think your aunt will mind that the stitching was done in 09 and framing completed it in 10
