Ok, my first thought when seeing 80 count linen
as the subject was "oh my God.. I'd go blind with that
My second thought is to suggest making a table runner
in the time period of your persona. It would be nice to
take it to SCA feasts (if you can bear smudges on it)
or it would make a lovely family heirloom that could be
framed. If it ever passed outside of your family, it
would likely fall into the hands of a needlework collector
and would continue to be appreciated.
