It has taken me ten years and fifteen minutes to do this job. Ten years of thinking about it, getting quotes for framing, then forgetting about it, then deciding to frame it myself, then waiting for IKEA to get more 50 x 50cm Ribba box frames in stock. And they are never in stock. It's always the same story - six to eight weeks away. Then last week my lovely friend Julie R rang me from IKEA with a stash of Ribba's in her hand - did I still want one? Hell yes! I collected the frame from Jules last night and this morning, in just fifteen minutes, I finally framed the incredibly sweet Baby Dior dress that Jem's brother gave Annebelle when she was born. Both girls wore it to their first Christmas lunch. Both girls dribbled gravy onto it. And both girls have made me swear to take it out of the frame when they have their own little girls to wear it!
