I just finished my dad's wedding gift. They said no gifts but I wanted to show my support.



I stitched the Mr & Mrs Wee One pattern by Heart in Hand on hand dye 14 count ale aida. I mounted the completed design on a Pres-On adhesive board cut to size and put it in a glassless 5x5 primitive green frame with a square piece of cardboard for the backing. Since the frame was thick enough for the fabric, adhesive board, and cardboard, everything was pretty snug but I decided to use my staple gun around the sides to hold the card board.

This is great, love the design. I really like it when stitched pieces are glassless, I think it adds to their depth/texture.

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