That took time!

Well anyone who has visited my finishes tab will probably have seen the classic car cross stitch I made my father a number of years ago. However I was young and just put it in a frame without washing, ironing or framing it properly. I has bothered me for a long time so recently I took it down and washed and ironed it properly.

I finally got around to mounting it on some board and putting it back in the frame. However I decided to put some mount board in front of the stitched piece also. Here is the result of much tedious work with a scalpel. I hope he will like it.
