I decided to play with the pattern this afternoon. Orders finished for the day, dye pot put away and sat down and got serious with the stitching program. I did the new chart (available in a couple days). I wanted this one to be different from The Sewing Parlour in several ways. A more casual motto so I did sprigs of flowers for the little design elements. I won't have time to stitch this one on perforated paper for a few days. More orders have come in and dyeing floss is the first priority these days. I still may do a cross stitch pattern for the other motto when I have time. I figured with both perforated paper kits available and this chart, well, that should work for a little while. I am also going to do the mini mottoes with simple patterns of these two sayings. The mini motto on perforated paper is 4-1/2" x 9-1/2". They stitch up in a couple hours.
Well I thought I was going to have an evening to relax but another request has come in for a motto so I will be back at my desk this evening. I just wanted to give you a peek at the new design. I'm not sure if I will have this one stitched on linen. I have the other motto to display in my office and the picture of this motto on linen for the cover looks good enough for now. Maybe at a later date......
Thanks for stopping by.
