Happy Valentine's Day, friends!

I stitched this up, intending to frame it in a wooden hoop and hang it up... but it didn't fit! I was thinking maybe a pillow... but I am still unsure. Anyone else have any suggestions as to what I should do with it?

Inspiration without application is moot.

How about on a towel? Or maybe drape it over a lampshade for the day?

Other than my less than helpful ideas, may I say wow? Nice work, great color choices.

Beautiful! You could back it with red felt (maybe cut with a decorative edge) a little larger than the embroidery to make it looked framed and just hang it like that. But it would also make a cute pillow.

Oh, it's wonderful! I agree that it would make a very pretty pillow, but something this nice deserves to be on the wall! Maybe you could try to find a hoop that's just a little bit bigger?

It's really pretty. I like the border design a lot. Could you sew it to other pieces of coordinating fabric to make a mini quilt or a little wall hanging?

I vote for bigger hoop. It might also be very cute appliqued on a tote.

Love is patient, Love is kind, It does not envy; it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude it is not self-seeking it is not easily angered it keeps no record of wrongs. love does not delight in evil but rejoices in the truth It always protects always trusts, always hopes, always perserveres

I'd applique it on a pillow.  It's lovely, by the way!

This is sooooo pretty. really love how you filled your little hearts!
I say mount & mat it into a regular square frame (i like the idea of round & square together). It's lovely whatever you choose.

Awesome. Absolutely lovely Smiley.

I'd vote for a larger hoop too. I think the felt idea was also a great one.

Oooo! So many great ideas - thanks, everyone!

I'm leaning toward the felt idea... but still undecided.
