Ornament Frames were in every craft store, every dollar store, and I swear, even in service stations sometimes back when I first started stitching. Now, sometimes, it is difficult to find frames. I snap them up when I do find them because I love to make ornaments.
Recently I saw that Kreinik had some new options for framing smaller pieces. They have introduced Ornament Frames with 30 or 40 ct silk gauze in them – the frames are made of an acid free board and support the gauze as you stitch on the project, then act as the presentation frame too.
I know that some of you got squinty-eyed when I mentioned silk gauze – you will be relieved to know that Krenik also offers the frames without gauze in them. I plan to try out one of the frames for a project I am working on right now – watch for one of my WIP photos coming soon to a Craft Gossip post near you.
