SO... I guess this is my first real post after lurking for a bit.Lately I've been a bit obsessed with dandelions so I stitched this little project.

It's about 7 by 4 inches and the color is way less orange in person, the border is actually bright purple and black.
The problem is, I don't know what to do with it. Do I frame it or make a little pillow? Thoughts? Thanks!

.........


So here's the finished project, I attached a pretty blue cotton on the back and stuffed it like a pillow and than put a ribbon on the back. it's now hanging on my bedpost and I'm so glad that I finally finished it! thanks for all the advice guys! Smiley


The colors are definitely a lot more accurate in this picture.

So nice! This is so calm and pretty. You definitely need to do something special with it. A nice frame or pillow would both be good choices.

Sounds silly, but any of the suggestions are good ideas-- journal cover, framed piece, pillow, even a sachet.  IMHO, the only wrong choice would be stuffing it in a drawer somewhere and forgetting about it until you come up with that perfect spot.  Something this pretty should be enjoyed all the time by a special person or people. <3

It's amazing! I love dandelions! I don't understand why people consider them weeds.  I think they're lovely.
