Having been so impressed by their work on Archie’s birth sampler a few years ago, I decided to use Compton Framers in Chirk to frame my red kite. It is framed tight to the stitches with a simple black frame and a spacer between the frame and aida to prevent the stiches being squashed by the glass. They stretched the fabric for me and mounted it on board that helps the stitches stand out. The glass itself is special artist glass that has superior UV protection and allows the true colours of the design to shine through. Only the best for my kite you understand! I picked it up yesterday and it now hangs in pride of place in our lounge – at last!

I spent Friday crafting in preparation for Chris and Laura’s wedding on Saturday. I must be out of practice because they took me hours – it actually took me a whole hour to decide on the design of the framed piece, which was ridiculous given the simplicity of it. Here they are:
It was a beautiful wedding for two very special people. For one final time on the occasion of their wedding, I’d like to send them all my love and very best wishes for the future.
