This was for my mother in law for this past X-mas but I couldn't find the right matte for the frame so the embroidery wouldn't get crushed once the glass went in...ya know? Anyhoo, I found one and she'll get it this weekend. My camera is no good at taking closeups unfortunately so bear with me.







Thanks for looking!

If I had a hammer, I'd cover it with glitter.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Very nice!  I can see why your mom wants one, too. I just started doing some ribbon embroidery myself and it's addictive. I like how it works up faster than regular embroidery.
