The bullion knot required me to use spacers in the frame. I found a frame shop that was willing to sell me spacers, and offered to "staple" the piece in the frame if I brought it in. Today, with Mime in hand, I trotted into the frame shop. :) It was supposed to be a quick 5 minute job, but turned out to be a 30+ minute escapade. The board I stitched Mime onto was *just* a little to short (OK, about 1/4") for the spacers and it kept sliding out of place. The guy at the frame shop with really nice about it and kept at it until "we" got it. I offered to pay him and he said no. He just wants me to come back again. I think I can do that!
Without further adieu... I present, "Mime" framed:
Had an interesting chat with the framer about how people bring in their needlework. He commented on my lacing and said it's rare that he sees that anymore, and how much work it takes to do it. He said they use the sticky boards. He also said that some people use pins and pin needlework to foam core.
