A New Project

When we moved in and got everything hung on walls, we had three empty frames to fill. How exciting the endless possibilities are with empty frames! I was inspired by flipping through my old, trusty sketch book (that is almost completely filled after three years of being in my purse!) and seeing two little squares with words written in each.
I decided that stitching words onto different fabrics would be just the ticket for those empty frames.
I've finished the first one and am about 1/4 of the way through the second. I really love how they are turning out! There's something truly beautiful about row after row of crossed stitches.
Something that reminds me of my mom and grandma, as they are the ones who taught me to stitch when I was very young.
This is the first finished one. The others are on different fabrics but have the same red stitching and the same font.

    How sweet. I know they will be a keepsake. And Bulldog Maroon !!


  2. I love the look of the cross-stitches, beautiful work. Can't wait to see the other ones.

  3. I got two different types of red thread... I couldn't decide which one looked closer to the picture you gave me.


    This blog did not stitch the art, but it reminded me of yours. Thought you might like to look. Hope all is well in Boston!
