Amish Barn~Cross stitch

DIY~Finally! I finally
got this piece done and framed!
I checked on having it matted and framed.....they wanted
$200.00. OUch! So I GOT AN IDEA! A CHEAP IDEA! I started looking in thrift stores

for matted and
framed pictures about
this size.
I found an UGLY

with the right color
mat, and dark
away the UGLY picture
and put this
in instead!
Yipee! I'm
lovin' it.
