Thanks, Diane. This is simply brilliant. I have a pathetic collection of things needing finishing, and most of them are small -- ie. I should have been doing these myself for years. Apparently I'm a lazy stitcher.

I'm not sure what my attack plan will be, and I'm not even certain how many items I have hanging about. Among the ones I remember are:
1. dozens of ornaments and other smalls like--

BBD ornie 5_31_2008 001

Quaker freebie finished 3/29/07
Dutch motif 8/17/2007

2. needlepoint clock inserts--- waiting for me to find both the inserts and the clocks in the same place in space and time --

clock insert......

3. a couple SBs who languish because as much as I love the Jill mats, they are cut too thin to work in regular frames. I keep debating the wisdom of having these framed with copper tape so they all match or having special filler mats cut so they can fit in real frames .....

Such pretty things you've stitched, Ruth!

Sometimes I think the elusive quest for the perfect frame is something like the quest for the perfect man and we just have to settle for Mr. Right Now. :) The things I have framed so far are in (really, really, REALLY) inexpensive stock frames just to get them on display until I can afford their "forever" frames. (I'm still living under the delusion that someday I'll be able to afford custom framing again. LOL)
