I just finished the cross stitch on a present for my mother. Now, should i frame it or make it the centerpiece of a throw pillow?

It is from a Bucilla kit, so i can't take any credit for the design. I love the colors and the way they chose to blend them.

The design is 6" by 6". Silly me, i started it in December thinking it wouldn't take very long and could be a Christmas present.

Nicely done!  You have my respect - I tried cross stitch and ended up cross eyed.

it's so pretty and cute, lovely shades of pink and great details, doesn't mater if it's a pattern someone else provided, you did all the work on this one Smiley your mother will love it, I'm sure of it.

And the pillow/frame problem, I would go for the frame, it's on the wall and can be seen easier, it's easier to move a pillow and forget where it is Tongue
