  1. Looks really good. Very simple but plenty in there with the stitching and the layers to keep finding something different ht

  2. A beautiful piece of art, subtile and asking for a closer look.

  3. It came out great with those discrete stitches. I find very interesting idea of framing!

  5. I adore the piece. It's elegant in its simplicity....but not too simple that you'd walk by it without leaning in for a closer look. The name is great!

  6. Love what you have done Beth, and I enjoy your work and receiving your emails.
    Concerning how you framed your surface design, did you at one time share a more detailed diy on how to frame your your ?
    If so, could you tell where to find on your blog or website?
    Thanks,

    1. Hi Debbie, Just under the header is a list of tutorials. One is called 3-way framing here http://sewsewart.blogspot.com/p/framing-3-ways.html
      Please feel free to email with any questions. I no longer use spray adhesive for the felt.. If I put the felt down and the top on top and smooth with my hands, the layers stick together. Then I stretch and hold with pins.
