Project complete! My moms sewing diploma is framed. I went with a very classic black frame, with the detail on the frame picking up some of the detail in the diploma itself. Rather than going for a plain matting, I selected a simple textured pattern. I think it turned out lovely, and will be proudly displayed in my sewing room. Looking at it brings back many memories of my mom teaching me sew and spending many hours with me helping me refine my sewing skills.
