After about two years of closing the drawer wistfully on the tapestry, I bargained with my husband: he could hang his three Roman soldiers and I could hang my tapestry. Both of us tolerate the other's picture. But at least mine is cheap! I got the frame with a coupon at AC Moore for something under $5 - I think the frame gives it an elegant, minimalist edge.
