Ok, my first thought when seeing 80 count linen
as the subject was "oh my God.. I'd go blind with that
thread count". 

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.
