A Birdhouse for Nana...



My Nana turned 90 years young this week and I am working furiously to get this little number finished for her.  It's on 14ct Aida with regular DMC embroidery floss and a #24 tapestry needle.  The birdhouse design is from a wonderful book called Quick To Stitch Cross Stitch Keepsakes by Helen Philipps...I just love her aesthetic and sweet little pictorials.  


Cross stitching (like knitting) is so meditative!  Such a fun and relaxing way to wrap up a day. Oh, here's a close up...it will eventually be a birdhouse, and I have to do some more border work around it...stay tuned, hope, hope, hope it gets done this week!!!  I see her on Sunday...fingers crossed!


So, lovely Stitchers, my question to you...how should I present it to her? As a pillow? Framed? Other ideas?
