The Stitching Parlour chart

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.

    1. Thank you very much. I will do this saying with the fancy scrollwork (like the Sewing Parlour motto) at a later date. I just don't have the time right now.

  16. Thank you. The charts will be printed tomorrow, they are $9,99. I include pages with color blocks and pages with symbols for all my charts so you can use the type you prefer. As for energy....I have none. These diseases give me profound exhaustion. I make myself do everything with a big PUSH!!!!!
