Blue Bargello with Pin

This small bargello had been kitted up for years.  I bought the pin at least 6 years ago!  This is one of the "easy" pieces I started to have ready after cataract surgery.  Well, as it turned out that really wasn't necessary.
Anyway, last week I finished it.  The canvas is called Vintage French Blue, I think, and makes a fine background. Unfortunately, it turned out to be about 5-1/2" square - NOT a standard size.  
I'd like to frame it in a somewhat ornate pewter-ish frame.  I doubt if I can find a ready made one to fit, so it'll go in the bag for the new framer I'm going to try.  Actually, he is a framer I used to use when he worked for a chain and who has gone into business for himself.  Good luck there!
