I think it's a great idea now and then to just frame your favorite design.  However, I get a bit bored with simply stitching it on some fabric and then sticking it in a frame.  I use "float frames" all the time for my Illustration work, and I thought I could achieve a similar effect with embroidery.

I just stitched it on some sheer organza fabric, and attached it to the back of the frame.  I especially like this way of framing when I have a design that has a lot of interesting negative space.  It lets light shine through and casts a pretty silhouette when you hang it on a wall.  Plus it was so quick!  No sewing involved.  I think it would be great for last minute gifts.

This is great!  I love the design, also.  I've used the floating frames for a lot of other projects, but never for embroidery!  Thanks for the great idea!
