Chardonnay anyone?? Made this birthday gift for the Wine Lover in the family. DH thought I was making a pillow with this design. So, if she doesn't like it framed, I'll do as hubby suggested and turn it into a pillow for her. Which would you prefer?

I like it just as it is framed. But, quite some time ago I made a squared stiff wine bag, using a similar design, that holds a bottle of wine for a friend. I put a bottle of her favorite wine in the bag and gave it as a gift to her. She uses the bag with a bottle to decorate the end of her kitchen countertop. Just an idea.
Hugs, Angel

Thanks - you know I did think of making a wine bottle bag, but I was thinking of a totally different design for that project (more generic type of grape design). I will probably still make a bag, for another gift occasion.

Thanks. Design is from Embroidery Library's Art Deco "wine" series. http://www.emblibrary.com/EL/Prod...

There are 4 different large wine designs. I want to make them all to create a nice wall grouping, and this is the first one I have tried. They take a long time to stitch out, but the end result is quite lovely.

Looks like it was meant for the frame. Looks good and even better on a wall.

Thank you. I just had it standing on a sideboard, but it will look nice on her wall. She recently had her kitchen updated, and the colors will go together nicely.

Thanks Carolyn. I originally wanted to use a dupioni silk for this project, but couldn't find an appropriate color. That would have made a lovely and shapely pillow, eh. But I already had the frame since that was my initial intent to make it for her wall. Hadn't even thought of a pillow until hubby mentioned it. Oh well, maybe next time...

Nicely done. If I was into wine's this would be what I would enjoy. Seeing it framed.

Thanks so much. I like both ideas, but I think I like the framed presentation best. Then people won't need to touch it, and get it soiled.

Thanks - I like the frame as well. I have a few other tall and narrow designs that would look nice in this type of frame and now I know where to get them.

Thanks toogie. Well, if she doesn't like it at all, perhaps that spot you have for it could be filled!?!?!?!
