Serendipity

I've always designed the mats and moulding for a piece based mostly on the cues I get from the piece itself. (color, style, size etc.) and sometimes from cues I get from the person that sent it.  I figure if a person loves a piece enough to have it professionally framed, then I can't go wrong picking elements that suit the nature of the piece.  (For example a colorful funky needlework might be best framed with colorful mats and a quirky frame.)  I assume that if they love the piece, then using that approach, it will blend seamlessly into their home.

Being mostly a mail-order frame shop, I rarely get to see the finished product in it's home.  This week I had the opportunity to see a completed project ready to hang.  One of my clients sent a photo to show me how wonderful her piece looks with a bench she covered in her own needlepoint.   How thrilled I was to see that It was absolutely perfect for the intended space.  Don't you agree?

I have lots and lots of framing to show you as I'm still behind from a few weeks ago.
Enjoy. (I did!)

You do such beautiful work. It would be nice if you could mention the stitcher/person next to your beutiful framing.

If you right click on the photo an look at the properties, it's usually labeled with the stitcher's name and,if they've provided me with it, the name of the piece

I love the June one and the doilies and the baby's hat, even it feels odd to see such items in frame. The June one I understand, it's a stitched picture, but those lace doilies and the baby's hat...Well, if the hat is old and worn and one is afraid it will fall apart soon,if one doesn't frame it, then I get it. Same goes to the lace doilies.
This is not a critic. This is just a matter of taste. And you have a skill to make even those items (lace doilies & a baby's hat) look pretty in frames.
