Gram's 91st Birthday Present
After taking a dramamine, I finished stitching my Gram's birthday present the night before her birthday, in a car, by a pen light, that was tied to the visor... Yes, that's right. I'll own my dorkiness.
When I started I wasn't sure how I was going to display the finished piece. I finally decided on a shadow box, and found one at A.C. Moore. I think it's nice to be able to open up the front for a closer look at the stitches.
All I had to do was staple the embroidery around the slightly stuffed backing board the shadow box came with. I think it works well, especially because of the color of the wood.
The only thing I wish I had done differently was not use green in the center around the blue and yellow. I thought the blue and green kind of blended in together... but regardless, I really liked how it turned out, and Gram liked it, which is all that matters!
Is it weird that I kept seeing this design as a crocheted block?
