I’m back. I know I haven’t blogged in about a month. Oh dear! I’ve been busy working on some new things for the shop that will roll out early next year. And, I’ll admit, enjoying a little down time with my son over summer vacation.
Many of you may have seen this piece on Facebook last week. I stitched this beautiful piece by Melissa Prince and I just love how it turned out.
Melissa designed this to be a piece in a girl’s room. But I just loved it so much and wanted to do it. So . . . I thought why couldn’t this be like a welcome sign in my house? The green placquard comes blank and Melissa will paint any name on it for you.
I think the little blue flowers are my favorite flowers on the entire piece.
You know how I love Brick Stitch beading! And we have a new bead vendor who has some crazy beads. These were just perfect to fill the inside of the sunflower with.
A lot of people asked if I applied a trim of some sort for the gold braid and the name. Nope! It’s called Hungarian Double Braided chain. I picked up that little gem from Tony Minieri the last time I saw him.
I’ll write up the stitch guide soon for this piece. But . . .I was also thinking this would be an excellent class piece. Let me know if you’re interested and I’ll work it into our crazy schedule.
