Grow Old Along with Me motto
It's always a pleasure to design a motto that will be treasured by a family and become a future heirloom. I have had the pleasure of designing dozens and dozens of such mottoes. Tributes to family members, honoring family members, etc. The motto I designed yesterday was for a gentleman who wanted an anniversary gift for his wife. Stitched and framed. What a guy.......I have had several men buy these as gifts for their wives. So the motto I had that he liked was Grow Old Along with Me. But he wanted me to add their initials and year of their marriage. I changed the whole pattern to fit that in and I actually like it better this way. He wanted red instead of the pink roses and dark pink lettering. I love red so I was happy to stitch this and I wanted to show you a preview of it. The motto was an 8 hour stitch yesterday and I carved the frame and the stain is curing. It is shown in a plain frame. Not very bright out this morning but here it is. I love the simplicity of these mottoes.
I need to get back to the dye pot and floss but I have one more custom pattern to do this week.
Thanks for stopping by. Be sure and stay tuned as I will have the Valentine's Day give-away real soon.
