Finally! We picked up the framed needlework adaptation of my father's Central Park pen-and-ink drawing yesterday. As you may recall, it was the first piece I blog-stitched when I started this blog exactly five months ago yesterday.

I'm very happy with the plain, flat-black frame we selected. The white matte has a black inside lip, which almost produces a double-matte effect. The photo was taken at a slight angle to avoid glare from the camera flash, as the glass is archival but not non-glare. I deliberately chose to use glass since there is so much white in the piece, and I've never aspired to winning the Good Housekeeping seal of approval!

This is wonderful, and the frame is just perfect. I've always felt that it is the stitching that matters but sometimes it is overshaddowed by the framing.
