I dismantled the fire screen, putting the old embroidery away, and giving the frame a good clean. There was already a board cut to size for the embroidery to go round, having been used for the old one, so no need to get anything else. The old one was glazed, but I don’t want this to be, so I disposed of the glass.
I want it to seem quite soft, so I stuck some wadding to the board with 505 fabric spray glue:
Centring the embroidery over that, I laced it on the back in the usual way:
That’s my name tape on the bottom, for someone in the future to find!
I placed this into the frame:
Then placed the back panel down and screwed it into position:
All done! I’ll show you the finished piece tomorrow.
