OK, so I took the little SB Sheep to the framer. Tiny design, sweet, very tiny--oh, did I mention how tiny it is? I added the squiggles to it after all. I thought it came out cute.
I bring the little leaflet so I could make it look just as sweet as the talented ladies at SB made theirs look. Uh yeah right.
My framer and I are excitedly trying different mat colors (I had to do a triple mat of course) and I picked out a gorgeous white carved frame--key words here are "gorgeous" and "carved". So I think I'm done and she says "Let's see what we're up to!". She goes over to the computer and says, OK, we're up to $(deleted incase mom visits!) would you like the archival glass?
EXCUSE ME??????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not only do I NOT want the archival glass, but we need to do this all over again. Nice for me that she is a wonderful woman and was happy to help. I picked a much thinner American-made embossed frame (who knew carved Italian frames were so dang pricey?) and I was able to bring it down to 1/2 what she originally quoted. My gracious.
OK, so I worked on my PS fairy and she's almost done. I want to name her. She looks like Millie to me. I haven't settled on it yet. With framing prices what they are, Millie may be in the closet a while.
Have you seen this? I MUST have it! I borrowed this image from The Silver Needle, and I hope that's OK!
They made it into a treat bag too and it's so cool! Enjoy and happy stitching!
