Since refurbishing my scroll frame, that I wrote about in my last post here, I've now attached my linen to the frame. That too was quite a lengthy process. The book Whitework by Lizzy Lansberry, a Royal School of Needlework publication, and Jenny Adin-Christie's video on dressing a slate frame were both very useful guides. These photos are a record to remind me of how I did it.
To begin, I ironed the shop creases out of the linen and pulled a thread one centimetre from the edges.
