From a kit I got at Goodwill; now hanging above my stove.  The little yellow dots were a pain in the ass to do, but they kinda "make" it; I couldn't leave them out.  (I also got "off" at some point doing them, so they're shifted to the right one column.  I highly doubt anyone will notice  Cheesy

I am a little concerned about where it's hanging.  With it right above my stove, it's suseptible (sp?) to grease and smoke and stuff.  I should have some kind of plastic over it to protect it, but I'm not sure what.  Any ideas?

Comments and critcism welcome.

What a great find! It looks great, "off" dots and all (and no, I couldn't tell).
I think I would be worried, too about it getting messed up above the stove. Is there another wall in the kitchen you could hang it on? (ok, maybe that was obvious). I wonder if you could go to a frame shop or something and get some glass cut to fit the frame and put over the embroidery?

There are definately other places to hang it, but there's this opening above the stove that just begs to have something hanging there. 

The only thing I had thought of, was some of those Dollar Store picture frames just have plastic instead of glass.  If I could find an 8x10 frame like that, I could cut the plastic down. 

Maybe I could wrap it in Glad-Press-n-Seal  Cheesy

That is so funny, as I was scrolling down, I was thinking of Press-n-Seal too (okay, not as an actual solution, I kind of have images of it warping and browning like shrinky-dinks you leave in the oven for too long... not that I've ever done that  ***cough***).

Great finish!  I don't have any great advice for protecting it, but I would worry about it also.  The only piece of needlework I have in the kitchen is professionally framed and under glass.
