Enchanted Gardens update

A day full of summer rain gave me the encouragement I needed to finish another row on my botanical WIP instead of doing some long overdue house projects.

Truly love the combination of cross stitch and blackwork in this piece.

Sampler update

72A77492-EC21-479C-AD33-543F233C6A75Between wood splitting sessions this weekend, I was able to make a bit of progress on my  botanical crossstitch sampler. I am really hoping to finish the stitching this summer so that I can spend time this fall working on the quilted bit that will surround the piece.

Put my other projects aside to stitch this for a friend who recently lost her four legged companion. Made it into a pillow so that she could hold it when needed. I hope that she likes it…

Finished stitching my first wedding gift of the year. I really enjoyed stitching this tree of life and selecting the quote that I felt was appropriate for the couple. Now I just need to get it framed and in the mail before the wedding.

Pillow talk

i spent the last month make some monogramed pillows for the master bedroom in preparation for the memory quilt that is being quilted for the bed. The pillows are a combination of cross stitch and blackwork. I so love hoe he blackwork makes the colors in the flowers pop that I have started a rather large sampler  for one of the bedroom walls that will use the same technique.
