Easter Cracker Sampler - Bent Creek

Design: Easter Cracker Sampler
Designer: Bent Creek
Threads: GAST and WDW included in kit
Fabric: 28 count evenweave from kit
Frame: picked up from local charity shop

I framed this in the summer, and won't be displaying it until the spring - isn't that a shame? I actually bought the frame with another piece in mind, but both The Hermit and I thought this was a better combination!

I have framed it straighter than this picture suggests, too, but I think in future I will ask my local framers to mount my work - they only charge £2-£5 for it, it's more expensive than that to buy the acid free self adhesive mount board in laces like Hobbycraft!

It's lovely. It looks very beautiful in its frame.
And I'm SO jealous that your framer takes only a small fee for mounting. Hmmm...I might have to ask my framer what he does charge for it.
