Item details

While just as beautiful as your what your grandma made in her band sampler, the message is updated to gain chuckle. "Tell Me I'm Pretty" "Sew What""I Never Finish Anyth" "House Management" and "Support the Troops" are part of the subversive cross stitch movement. Each piece varies in size, has been stretched, framed, and currently is ready to be placed in an easel (sold separately).

Of course I can restitch the design to meet your wants. "Support the Troops" is stitched to order and frame will vary from the picture. Start up a conversation with me and we will create something together.

Displaying your piece:
Stained glass is meant to be displayed in light and looks very different when not. It is up to you and part of the fun to find the perfect location for your new piece. However, I would stay away from suction cups as these can unexpectedly release. Make sure the weight of hanging material is appropriate for the weight of the actual piece. (Steer clear of thin fishing line.) The best way to hang stained glass is to screw hooks securely into a sturdy wooden frame. Be careful hanging pieces on items that move such as doors or windows that open. Of course, it probably goes without saying, but in households that have children or pets in residence, stained glass artwork should be secured far off the ground to avoid it being knocked over or broken.

I do use lead solder which is safe to coexist with humans and pets unless ingested in substantial amounts. I can use lead-free solder upon request and a significant material surcharge.
