It's late so I have to be brief. Saturday I took two pieces to a local frame shop to have them framed. DH told me about the place. This shop is located behind the man's house. He does great work. He spent over an hour with me. I had so much trouble picking mats and in hindsight I would have use no mats. Less decisions and when I got home and looked at the pic one the chart, I noticed the model picture used no mats. Oh well. Mats aren't that expensive. I found out it's the frame. I'll probably get more pieces done but I'll be more careful selecting my frames. At $9 a foot it gets expensive!! They should be ready in two weeks. I can't wait to post pics.

I assume when you are looking for shops that you mean cross stitch.

There is only one over in the New Smyrna area that I know of and it is actually in Cocoa.

Knit & Stitch is in Cocoa Village on Stone Street. It's off of Route 520 right near Route 1.

There are three shops in the Orlando area (Mt. Dora, Altamonte Springs and Winter Park).

You can email if you want further information - check my blog for my email address.
