Yesterday I decided to finally frame 'I Stitch' a design I finished last summer. Again I used a store bought frame but decided against a mount as the design has such a nice border already.
'I Stitch' was designed by Rhona Norrie from cross stitch crazy magazine (I think it was issue 139) I fell in love with this design as soon as I saw it and strated stitcing straight away, I also have Rhona's 'Stitcher's Promise' design on my stitching list and my Mum wants to stitch her new 'Count Your Blessings' design from this month's issue on Crazy!
Should have some more framing to show soon as well as some more exchange pieces & PIF's!! Until next time, Happy Stitching!!

***Edit*** Lesleyanne, I bought my mount ready made from a cheap shop in the town where I live but coloured mounts and double mounts (which is what I used on the birth sampler) are avaliable on ebay quite frequently or try and cheap shops in your area such as poundland, poundstretcher, wilkinsons etc. Hope this helps!
*** Edit 2*** I backed my design onto stiff card using double sided tape, than placed it under the mount in the frame.
