Drawn Thread Day 23

Today's Drawn Thread finish is a bell pull.  I'm not fond of my finish.  I wish I had stitched this on a higher count.  It seems a bit clunky to me.  The folds indicate that this has been in a drawer for a long time.
I'm fond of delicate small sweet things.  This would be much sweeter on a higher count.  I'm sure I stitched it on 28.  For many years that is all I used.  Now my world has been expanded.  My most usual count has been upped to 32.  I've been know to be wild and crazy and do 40 on occasion.  I actually have a piece of 50 to try out.

A reader who is listed as "no reply" asked me about the chart I am using to stitch the commission.  It is a Danish chart that I bought on Ebay.  The letters are fairly quick to stitch and as I'm am particularly fond of flowers I like the design.

I finished the commission yesterday and have to decide how to finish it.

Frame or pillow is the question.  I'll have to check with DIL and see what she thinks.
