Celtic Snow is framed

My Celtic Snow is back from the framers and hanging on the wall. I'm really pleased with how it's turned out.  The frame looks like brushed stainless steel. It's very simple, but it lets the embroidery shine.




It was hard to get a good photo. That darker section in the bottom left hand corner is my reflection.

The beads look even better now that the linen has been stretched.



Although it's possibly a Christmas piece, I'm going to leave it on the wall for a few months now. We're going into our Southern Hemisphere winter, so it's not too out of place.

You can read all about this embroidery in my earlier post from a few weeks ago here.

it is very pretty and would be hard to put it away for couple months when you just got it back.

Wow, what a beautiful framing job. I was going to say the same thing about the beads and designs - the framing really sets it off wonderfully.

Your frame is perfect as it does not detract from the embroidery and enhances your work really well. I would definitely leave it on your wall and enjoy it.

Wow - very impressive! The stitchery and beading are gorgeous. The frame suits it well, complements the color and shine without overpowering it. I don't blame you for wanting to keep it displayed to enjoy it, both during your winter season and again at Christmas.

Beautiful and now you and everyone else can enjoy it daily. Is there a glass covering the embroidery? Just wondering.
