sweetness...



here's another pretty from teresa's e-zine! amy powers was a guest artist, and this was her project.



now, honestly, i am not so into the whole stitching scene. i remember cross stitching as a junior high aged girl and ending up with a knot in my neck the size of a baseball. but, i gotta tell you, i loved this!



i love the way you just stitch - no real pattern - no counting - it's just really free spirited.



amy had tons of ideas for little hearts.



and i even watched a tutorial to learn how to make french knots. (attention all seamstresses - please don't look too closely!)
i think i will use it in a little pretty. perhaps on a valentine, a collage, or in a cigar box assemblage...hmmmmm???

happy day!

  5. Whoa...that is the greatest! I, too, was a failure at junior high embroidery but I cannot wait to do Amy's project. I have my things almost ready and should take off this weekend. I love your letters underneath...you always add a little bit of "you."
