I used letters and coordinating designs from the Quilted Letters set at Embroidery Online to create this. Red broadcloth, a layer of warm and natural, and no show mesh for stabilizer. Silver and Gold threads are by Robison Anton which were without any problems on my Ruby Royale.

The question now is ... what should it be? The design filled my 200 x 360 hoop, so it's large enough for a small wall hanging, or a large block or maybe the center of a table runner. I'm undecided. What do you all see? Maybe something I don't?

That is beautiful, Lynn!!! Could you make it into a Christmas stocking to hang on your mantel or on your front door?

You know ... maybe it could be a stocking. The other thing that occurred to me after I posted is to arrange the letters horizontally and stitch it out again for a table runner or placement. And, I could do NOEL for a 2nd placement.

Is storage a consideration? That is one aspect of considering projects for me today. Maybe make it as a "wrap around" on a pillow & do seasonal wrap arounds, using the same pillow base. It is lovely..be sure to use it someplace so you & others can admire your work!

Very pretty! I think I would be lovely as either a wall or door hanging and also like your idea for a table runner, too!

So pretty, first thing I thought of is a table runner but all the other ideas would be nice too. Those letters are just beautiful.

Vivalda, I never thought of a wrap around for a pillow. That's a good idea too.

I was thinking of one of those pillows that are pretty long. I just saw some in Bed&Bath store. Can't remember exactly what they were called.
