Please, please ignore my hideous, horrible photo cropping skills.  Embarrassed

Just finished this last night and couldn't wait to share!



I got the pattern from bombastitch on etsy. It went fairly quickly, all things considered.

I hunted for a pattern specifically for this frame, and I'm not sure the colors of the eye go well enough with the frame. I've almost decided to repaint the frame, but it is vintage, so I'm torn. Opinions?

C&C welcome as always!

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

Ha ha - no. It's funny cause it's only 5" by 7" (the picture-viewing part, anyway). It's just a really old picture frame I found at a junk shop for $1. Can you believe it? I fell in love with it instantly, and knew it had to have some stitched madness in it. Not sure if this pattern goes as well with it as I'd like, though.

Thanks for the lovely comments!

I love it!!!  That is the perfect pattern for your frame.  What an awesome pattern it is too.

This is fantastic.  Personally I like the frame in that color, though perhaps not its glossiness.

I don't think you should change anything about it, but you should place it somewhere up high. It is perfect for the Eye of Sauron. Perfect!

That looks fantastic! I love the frame! If it were me, I'd probably paint the frame a different color because I think the brown wood is very dark however if you like it, it's perfect Smiley
