So I was wondering if you ladies could tell me what you think. I stitched up the first one of the kids' Christmas ornaments. I was thinking of mounting it in that little pendant piece you can see in the picture. Have any of you done this with your stitching?
There is that slim frame around the glass. There is not much depth to the piece. I had wanted to stitch up each of the kid's year of graduation for the back. The book I absolutely love and have checked out over and over again from the library for alphabets and numbers is missing!! They cannot find it! Rats! It's called 365 Alphabets: Cross Stitch All Through The Year by Kooler Design Studio. The library computer catalog says check shelf. If it is mis-shelfed, what shelf should they check!!!! The library is kinda huge!!! It has been almost one week since they began looking. I think I will have to look to another source.
So I was wondering if I should go this route, with the pendant type finish. I have had these in my stash for quite some time actually. I am afraid to cut my stitching so close and small. Do you use Fray Check around all the edges? There would not be room in the depth for two pieces of linen plus turned edges. Have you ever used Fray Check where you wanted to cut and then after it is dried cut it afterwards? I have only applied it to my cut edges.
