Yesterday I kept thinking I had a frame that would fit Rooster but I never stopped to check the frame stash. I had a frame I thought might work for the last redwork piece I stitched but it was too small. Since Rooster is smaller than that piece, I was hoping it would work.
This morning as soon as I got up, I remembered to get it out and check. This is the frame I ordered for Big Red House but ended up using a Goodwill frame. That reminds me . . I’d like to make a Goodwill run and check out the frames but that’s not happening any time soon.
That’s just the frame positioned over the piece and sitting on the sofa but I think it works great. The only question I have is do I want something more plain for this piece. That frame may be a little more ornate than what I would have chosen for Rooster so I’m going to think about it for a while.
Probably I’ll look at some of the pieces I want to stitch in the near future and see if I think this frame works better for something else.
I wouldn’t be unhappy with Rooster in this frame but I guess it’s kinda like my other stashes . . if I use it for Rooster, I won’t have it for something else.
For now, I’m going to keep this frame in mind, stick Rooster on what used to be the quilt design wall but is now the “waiting to be framed” wall. I’ll read your comments and think about it a while. It’s a small piece and a frame this size isn’t expensive so it isn’t like I have an expensive frame that I need to use instead of ordering a new one.
When I’m ready to order frames again, I’ll see what’s available and see if there’s anything else that seems like a better fit or . . if y’all say “this is THE frame for that piece”, then I’ll use this one!
