I thought I'd do a hoop containing one of my favourites quotes from Romeo and Juliet;

"Give me my Romeo; and, when he shall die,
Take him and cut him out in little stars,
And he will make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night
And pay no worship to the garish sun"

The top sections colours were based on the Aurora Borealis.

The whole thing:

My only problem is don't know what to do with it! I want to put it on the wall but I'm not sure if i should frame or leave it in the, though i have no idea what people do with them if they are in the hoops? do you sew the fabric together across the back or something else?

(sorry for links, i haven't posted enough yet)

That's a really beautiful piece. I love Shakespeare, wonderful interpretation of the quote! Especially with the aurora. Great work! Cheesy

Regarding framing it, there are a few great Needlework Tutorials on here about how to finish needlework projects! Though it is just fine to glue or tape it into the frame, too. Smiley

That is super cute!  My sister is an English Lit teacher.  Now I have ALL KINDS of ideas running through my head for her.  I think if I was you I'd leave in in a hoop.  It gives it a kitschy quality that I love.  Nice work!

Thankyou! I have a few other quotes saved for futures hoops.

I looked at those tutorials, i've cut out some fabric, just need to clear a space for the sewing maching!
