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.

I vote for cover of a journal or a page within, sketch book or fiber art book.
