I found this Etsy shop while reading through posts on my Blog List. I love that I can find new ideas and craft inspiration by simply visiting another crafty person's blog and seeing what they are up to.
Charlotte is a designer specializing in embroidery patterns. You can buy PDFs of her work or you can purchase pre-printed panels just like the one I am working one here.
I haven't embroidered in years - we're talking 20 years!! I haven't stitched anything like this since my mother first taught me to do it back when I was still in elementary school.
Funny, even though years have passed I can still hear my mother saying, "Make small stitches!"
Are these small enough??
I really like the sentiments that Charlotte has incorporated into her design. Stitching over the words adds an emphasis and texture, hopefully catching anyone's eye.
I placed it in a black frame and I plan on adding it to the gallery wall grouping in our Family Room.
See my lovely new jug and saucer set?? I fell in love with it at the local Goodwill and I had to have it! I figure I could swing the $1.99!!
