I decided today I needed to frame some stitching. I have had this Lizzie Kate kit stitched since it came out years ago. I think it is a chart now, but, anyhow.... It needs to be framed. I decided it needed framed while in Wally World this morning.. I found this:
Wall Mirror on clearance for $2.50. Idea Bulb appeared over my head!! Don't you just love those moments! Hey!! It is square! Hard to find square frames.. and it is made by Better Homes and Gardens.
Idea was to take the mirror out, slap in cross stitch... That was the idea....
Here I have already rip the back off. I thought just pull those thingies upward holding the mirror in and out she will come! NOT..
They have hot glued the mirror in! What? That just says it is made better than I thought. Maybe in the USA? I didn't see where it was made... I had to slice through glue with slicer dicer knife thingie.
It worked... If you don't worry about 7 years Bad Luck.. Yep.. I broke that mirror.. Then I had to get my leather work gloves out and pry that mirror out! I WON the battle! I now have a great frame for my Lizzie Kate - Secret Garden!
I have not laced it yet.. I just wanted ya'll to get a look at it!! I may head back to Wally World and get the other one in the bronze color. Can't beat $2.50 for a frame, but do I want 14 years Bad Luck? lol
Now to lace and find a place to put it! Hmmmmmm
Have a great weekend everyone!!
