Pride of Place

 At long last, it is finished.  Over two years in the making, though admittedly much of that time was spent dragging my feet.

Truly, the difficult part was finding a mat that would fit both the embroidery and the frame.  In the end I had to cut a larger size mat to fit the frame.  Then, because no project is ever that simple for me, I felt the need to paint the mat to better suit the embroidery.

The end result is that I finally have a piece of embroidered art in my home that is of my own handiwork.  This long awaited creation finally gets it's place in the center of the mantle.  Perhaps sensing the gravity of this occasion, even Nessie is making way for it.
