I finished the back of the EGA Challenge by covering the back and edges of the mounting foamcore with a dark coordinating fabric, hand stitched all around. I like the "finished" look of it, even without a frame.
Not really noticable here, except as a thin dark line around the edge. I mailed it off to Judy Jeroy yesterday.
I stitched this holiday design a while back and a friend gave me the perfect frame. I finally got it all together and laced the linen to a piece of mat board and put it in the frame. I backed the frame and added a small sawtooth hanger.
Here are some closeups.
