So I have JUST dipped into the world of embroidery but I think I may already be developing an addiction!
I am curious if anyone has any ideas on displaying finished pieces.
I know about using the hoop as a frame as well as using a photo frame.

My first project was my niece's name with roses and a fairy, it was about 12" X 6" landscape. I ended up wrapping it onto a piece of wood, using a staple gun on the back to fix the fabric in place and screwed in picture wire so my sister could hang it on the wall.
I'm probably going to turn my recent project into a throw pillow. Cheesy

I would love to hear any ideas or other ways you may have displayed your work!

Thanks

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

I use this and frame it. I've made pillows before too. Yep, hoops all the time. I also have some old wood clock frames that I want to use for embroidery. 

Embroidery pieces on clothing is really popular right now. I've embroidered sweaters and shirts before.

Depending on the piece, wall hangings with sticks are nice too (like tapestry weaving).

I'm actually working on a fiber book. There are many examples online, this is one of a messier sort of style that I was looking at recently:

I like this frame-free mounting tutorial Ludi posted a while back too:

I have stretched a large piece over a small canvas.

Such a neat idea, I did one of these when I was a young girl and have no clue what happened to it, but I am sure it would be very different than one from today!

Let us see the many ways I have used my embroidery!

Wrapped around a canvas and stapled.
Sewn to a canvas bag.
Made a clock for Mistress Jennie in a hoop.
Patches,
pillow,
mug rug,
ornaments (not just for holidays!),
prayer flag,
coasters,
cup coozie,
I made a crown once,
ATC cards,
framed in a picture frame,
pouches,
bags,
purses,
tiny hoops for necklaces or the new Nunn findings specifically made to be used for embroidery (I just bought a bunch, expect to see them in my work eventually),
brooches,
earrings (seen but not made myself),
bracelet,
buttons (seen but not made myself),
bookmark...

Essentially, if you can think it, you can embroider it!  Grin

Don't ever be limited to what is normally done. Break the box!
