Mermaid framed

I collected her from the framer's today.  This is not the best photo because it was taken in artificial light but I couldn't wait to post it!  I might have another go tomorrow and re-post.

We decided not to have a matted mount as I wanted all the gorgeous fabric to show.  Instead the framer used a thin silver frame around the fabric then put the glass on top of that and mounted the whole thing in the wider top frame.

This evening I finished off the September freebie challenge from the Needlecraft Haven group, a Gazette 94 design.  I will post a pic when it's be published on that forum.  I wonder if any of my French speaking followers would mind reading the final Au Revoir post and telling me if the blog will be staying visible after December 2011 or not.  I know she won't be adding to it but some people have said it will actually be disappearing.  Many Thanks.
