I did it !!! This is my first attempt at framing and I think it came out really well. This is a birthday gift for my DD Manda and I think she is going to love it (I hope she does). I found the mat on sale at Michael's for only fifty cents and the frame was on clearance at WalFart for $7, finished project priceless.
One finish off my list so now I can reward myself with a little more stitching LOL
