POUNCE by Leisure Arts
I bet you didn’t know that there is another stitcher in my house besides me and my daughter. I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned it before, but my son also knows how to stitch. He hasn’t stitched anything in AGES, but he used to, when he was much, much younger.
He randomly set out to stitch this Winnie the Pooh project, as a gift, for a friend of his.
Without further ado, here’s his finished project.
He asked for my help with the mat and framing options. After a bit of fiddling around, we settled on this:
My go-to framer has closed up shop. We went to Michael’s for this project, and we used a 55% off coupon. Even with the discount, it was still TWICE the amount my regular framer would have charged. Not sure if it’s visible in the photo, but both my son and I noticed that the stretching could have been a little bit tighter/flatter.
I am actively searching for a framer for my mother’s Christmas gift. I’m hoping whoever I find isn’t too ridiculous.
I have also decided that I’m going to learn how to mat and frame myself, but I will start my own framing on much smaller projects.
