Or at least that was what it started out to be! Unfortunately, after two evenings of hand cramping work, I realized that I had read the pattern wrong. :eek

It was too much to frog, and I definitely didn't want to spend 2 more nights finishing it that way! :blush So I decided to finish it off where it was, and then the little voice said, turn it into a ring... and it actually looked good, thank goodness!

I think it's going to become a picture frame, but that's still up in the air. I'm just glad I realized I had messed up when it was halfway done and not 2/3 or something... and I'm glad the thread was variegated the way it was!

How about sitting a small flower pot in the middle of it?

Wow that's really neat. I think a picture frame is a great idea. Or some kind of wall hanging.

Now that is adorable! Probably wouldn't work for a bookmark, depending on the size...but I agree it would look nice under a flower pot. Or even candle holder?? It is cute though!

For size reference, it is about 3 1/2 inches across, the middle hole is right about 2 inches. :D

I think it'd be lovely at the base of a candle!

It's very pretty and would look great as a picture frame. Maybe you could get some of that magnetic stripping and attach it to the back, then you would have a fridge frame.

That's pretty! You could mount it in a shadow box and hang it, too.

That turned out very nice.. you could stiffen it up really good and hang a little crystal from it, then it will be a sun catcher :D

Thanks everybody!

It would look pretty around a candle, but we have a kitty that gets into and onto everything, and we're all seriously allergic to anything scented. And I kinda wanna keep it :lol

I'll let everyone know what I end up doing with it :D
