SGF, Supreme Grumble Framer
- Oct 10, 2000
This is something I did. The piece was the PPFA first place winner in the open competition a few years back. I am posting it because I am sure many missed it. The needlework also one first place, plus best in show at the Eastern States Exposition Craft Adventure. I reframed it for the framing competition.
The x st is 32 count (16 count worked over 2 threads). There are beads and metallic threads throughout. I think it took me about 6 months to stitch.
The frame and fillet are from LaMarche. I altered the finish on both to match the beadwork. I matched the corners as best I could. The x st and the mat are both padded. There is a continuous liner around the needlework, and a fabric covered spacer between the mat and the frame.
I thought I'd post it, since it is hanging up for the holidays.
