Where has March gone to? It's nearly April already!
Well, with the Six Nations recently completed, it is only fitting to display a signed England rugby shirt.
First a form was cut out of sugared almond mount board to fit the shirt exactly and make it lay nice and flat to show off the signatures. The shirt and form were then hand stitched (to avoid splitting the threads of the fabric) on to the background of sugared almond board. Two more layers of geranium and sugared almond mount board create a bit of depth to contain the shirt and give a nice stripe of England red, then the shadow box has been completed with a broad stripe of red just under the glass.
All neat and tidy and preserved for many years to come.
