I collected my Lyrebird from the framers yesterday, together with his friend the Cockerel.The Lyrebird was my oldest UFO at 42 years of age, finally finished! The full story is here.
I took him down to Otley market to get framed together with the cockerel that I stitched when I was 7. I usually get my embroidery’s framed elsewhere but I thought I would give the market man a chance with these. I didn’t really want the expense of my usual framer, they do a superb job but it would have been pricey for what is effectively a child’s embroidery.
I collected them yesterday and I’m delighted with them, the mounting isn’t to the same standard as my usual framer, but it was probably a third of the price. I will hang them in my sewing room once I redecorate. Please excuse the reflections, I still haven’t got the hang of photographing a framed picture!
