I have several pieces of textile art that have needed framing for some time, I even have a pile of suitable frames, but I could not quite get my act together.  Today this article turned up in my email box, I found it very interesting & useful so I thought I would pass on the link to those of you who are interested.

Lovely, Hattie - and did you look at her photostream, and see the chicken - really very, very good. I only wish I was as artistic and clever ! ok

I came across this website - Jane Lightfoot, oh I wish, I wish I could do this beautiful work! *sigh*

Some of her work is more folded and appliquéd fabric than embroidery isn't it?

I'll try that again!

I suppose it is a bit of both!
