Embroidery.....Frame them, or Stuff them?


I have six vintage pieces of embroidery that I picked up on Ebay many years ago. They are obviously meant to be a set of dining room chair covers. I could never understand how it was chic to sit on someone's hard work? Since I only have three patterns with repeats....I'm not sure if I should hang them....or stuff them?






I like the organic feel when they are on the wall

A needlepoint pillow always takes my breath away

Do you have a preference? Do I break up the set?  I think I am leaning toward framing.

I am also giving an organizing tip at Living Savvy. Come on by and see how I like to keep my sewing supplies organized.

I vote to frame them! I could picture them in a wonderfully feminine bedroom! I wish I had one!

I like them, I would keep them in a set. I think white chunky frames would look really pretty!

I would totally stuff them. Hate to confuse the issue but the example you had with fringe is lovely. If you did stuff them I would break up the set. The backs of pillows could be luxurious velvet or silk.

I would hang them as a collection or intersperse them with other pieces for a gallery wall.

I would frame most of them and stuff one. The best of both worlds. :)

I vote for framing three of them. They would have great impact in a small space like a powder room if you hung them together, and I love the gallery style arrangements you posted if you had more in your collection.

I'm going with framing as well. I love the look of the pictures you posted and these would be gorgeous hanging up.

I agree with elizabeth, frame most, stuff a couple (or one would make a fantastic tote front!)

I'd frame 3, stuff two, and make a tote of one. I LOVE needlepoint! I have three needlepoints framed and over the mantle in the living room.
