From Me to Thee

From Me to Thee.....a little token of friendship made into a small pillow 6x6 inches. I stitched this in soft tones of antique green, gold and faded rose for lettering. I added two small butterflies that I had dyed to match. When you stitch the body with a few stitches, the wings lift up a bit off the fabric....just adorable. I bought these trims many years ago and finally found a use for them. When I offer this as a kit, two butterflies will be included in each one. I hope to have charts and kits completed in two weeks....lots of work to do for sure. There is never a shortage around here!

I will also offer this kit available on linen as well as aida. I ordered 40 yards of assorted linen and will dye some for new patterns as well as these I have just completed. They will be pictured on both fabrics. I wish they would add more hours to the day and then I could do all I need to do! I also need to add on to this house and I have taken over half of it (and we already remodeled once to double the size), the whole basement and we have a building 30x60 we use as a work shop for the frames. Who would have thought a motto collection would turn into an all-consuming passion....but I do love what I do.
Back to the drawing board.......

  2. What a pretty design. I'm trying to save money this year and stitch through my stash, but your new designs are surely testing that resolve.
