Day 10....

~ Greetings and Warm Welcome to ~
Day 10

I have a finish to share....

I (for the most part) frame my own finishes...
I get asked about once or twice per week if I would do a tutorial on framing. Many moons ago, I had a framing tutorial. I caught endless hell over that tutorial from people not agreeing with me or fill in the blank. So, I deleted it and vowed never to speak on this subject again.

But...being I'm older, wiser and my skin is a little thicker, not to mention I get a lot of e-mails every year over how do I do XYZ and where do I find ABC that I decided instead of answering lots and lots of e-mails I'd just write a tutorial. Since I have a finished Christmas gift ready for framing and we are in the midst of the 25 Days of Cristmas with The Twisted Stitcher, well that just solidified my mind that sharing was caring and I'd share how I frame again with my readers.

*DISCLAIMER* this is how I frame my projects. I know, as in anything in life, there is more than one correct way to do it. If you don't agree with how I do it then nobody is holding your feet to the fire to do it this way. I offer everything I know and have learned on my own with those in the cross stitching community ~ FREE. I ask for nothing -  all my tutorials are FREE and as such, please give me the respect I deserve by allowing me to share freely and without negative commentary either here or on Facebook, Instagram or wherever. There is nothing more upsetting to me as a person of goodwill to go into a group that I am a member of and be torn apart because someone doesn't agree with my technique and act as if I won't see their comments. I see them and I take note.  Finally, if you use it, give me credit, that is my payment and a very small price it is.

  3. I have been tempted more than once to ask you to "Go once more into the breach" and do a framing tutorial!! But, I hesitated knowing why you didn't. Glad you decided to do one. Thanks.

  4. I shake my head at the thought that anyone could ever say anything harsh to you. You care enough to share and yet they complain. So sad. Now for my comment...I read your tutorial and for the first time I actually feel like I understand. You explain it so clearly. Thanks! No negative comments from this poster. You are awesome!

  16. Thank you so much for doing ALL of your tutorials!! I can't even imagine the amount of time and effort it takes to do one of these tutorials so I just want to let you know how much I do appreciate it. Any negative comments about what you do and share are totally out of line!! Blessings to you and your family for a wonderful Christmas season all year long.

  17. Thanks for the framing tutorial Vonna. I’ve never tried framing my stitching, but after following a few of your finishing tutorials, I have the confidence to try it now. And now I have a new tool to put on my Christmas list 😉. The stitched piece for your son’s girlfriend is gorgeous too, I felt really special when the mom of my high school boyfriend gave me a Christmas gift (and I still use it). I am sure she will feel the love from you and your family!

  18. I am not the best at framing my own things so I truly appreciate your tutorial, Vonna!! I will definitely give it a try when the new year rolls around and things calm down :) Thank you so much for making ALL of us better finishers! I truly appreciate your wisdom and carefully done tutorials--thank you!!

  19. That's how I frame my pieces also. I love the framing stapler. I put brown craft paper on the back with double sided tape and then put a label on the brown paper.
