Some nice progress over the weekend...

I spent a bit more time stitching this weekend than I probably should of but I had a great time.

Here is the progress I made:

Sadly I realized that I made a huge mistake when I measured the fabric for cutting and I don't know how I managed that.  The fabric will have very little edge for framing and I am trying to figure out what to do about it.  Maybe I will turn it into a pillow or just sew more fabric on the sides to get it framed.

I framed A+ Teacher and am not sure if the frame suits it or not.  It was a weird size and this was the only frame I could find that the design fitted into.

IDon't you just hate when you realise too late that the cut was all wrong?!! I'm pretty sure you'll come up with a great solution tho! I love your frame choice :)

Lovely progress and I'm sure you'll figure something out about the fabric!

The frame looks great to me :)

Nice progress Monique. I think the framed piece looks great.

Great progress! My sister had given me a sampler she had stitched and left like only 5 threads on the bottom. I was able to make it a pillow and it looked great. Seeing what you have on the edges - you do have enough to frame but finding the right size frame (not having to have it professionally done) might be a quest. Certainly doable. A+ looks amazing - YES great frame for her:)You did splendidly.
