My younger daughter asked me if I would do some framing for her and I was delighted to be able to do so now that I have moulding. She had given me some prints that she had and I had one saying that I wanted to frame so thought I would do them all together. I have cut out all the framing mats and I have cut the glass for the small print but that is as far as I have got at the moment.Next step will be to cut out the glass and to make the frames. After I had finished cutting out these mats I found another print rolled up that I had forgotten about so I will need to make the mat for that one too.I really enjoy framing when I have moulding available to use. I also have a print of my own that I will frame when I have finished these.
I have just completed a second version of the geodesic jumper I made a few weeks ago.
I decided that I needed to make the sleeves a bit longer and also make the waistband deeper. I also made the waistband smaller so it draws in the body a little more.I am pleased with the finished result.
This is the first version.
I have finally got around to doing some picture framing. This hand painted piece is for my granddaughter’s birthday. I bought the picture at a makers’ market in Bairnsdale quite some time ago but now it is in a frame. I mentioned previously how I have finally been able to get some moulding to do framing, well now I have been able to find a source for the foam core board that fits on the back of the frame. We were visiting Sale and I thought I would try a picture framing shop there and see if they were willing to sell me some. Thank you Framing Elegance for being willing to do so. I was able to get some board and collect it at Stratford on the way home. Now I can seriously get stuck into my picture framing.
