You sure did your wonderful family photos proud with the way your presented them on this piece. I really like the scalloped strips you framed them with and those stitches with the rayon thread are beautiful. Don't you just love the graceful heels on the bride's shoes?

This is great. It is wondeful that you have these old photos. You have framed each one beautifully. I like the stitching and the borders and sashing, everything.
