Now, here comes the tricky part. I usually finish my framed pieces with a glass cover to help preserve them, but I love the textures on this piece. Because I used a number of stitches, beads, and threads, this feels nice if you run your hand over it. I think that a small child might enjoy being able to explore the different textures. But, I also want this piece to last until she (and her potential future siblings or cousins) grows up. What do you think? Frame with glass or without?
