A wedding gift - Sparkle and shine

 The Pattern is by Little House Needleworks
Quaker Birds
The Linen I used it Babbling Brook Jobelan
28Ct.
I changed the metallic thread to DMC
Silver.  I stitched the
first gold heart in metallic gold
and I did not like how it looked.
 I added swarovski crystals in
the plant holder.

 It is one of the
most beautiful pieces I have ever made. 
When the sun hits it, it sparkles like little diamonds.

 I did not
like the last ornament i made and
it did  not represent the work i do.
I looked through my stash and
decided i would do this piece.
We are our hardest critic arent we.

This piece screams wedding.  The 
finishing details jus complete this piece. 
 I am now proud to send this gift
out.  I decided i would send it for 
her bridal shower and not the 
wedding.  

The trim is done with pearls and tulle.
It matches just beautifully
 On the back there is a charm that says
Made with love.
The designing process to finish a piece.
I pulled different trims and ribbons 
and then slowly I decided what i thought
would look best.

I hope this gives someone ideas on a wedding
piece.

There will be a video showing the piece
in about  week showing the details.
Sometimes the photos just cannot pick up 
the sparkle.

YouTube video will be under
Cindys cross stich.

I hope everyone is having an awesome weekend.
Happy stitching.

March Finishes

Hello Stitchers.  I hope everyone is
having an awesome stitching weekend.
I finished this Shamrock piece for a
woman i work with.  Her birthday is
March 17.  The pattern is from lizzie
Kate.  The fabric on the back is 
what the piece is sitting on.  Finished
with purple chenille trim to match
the purple in the hat.
 Hope by Lizzie Kate.  I was able
to find Anchors on the red
ribbon which match perfectly.
I made the red and white cording
to match.  This now is displayed in
my Americana room.
 Winter.  Now we had some
flurries here in TN on Friday.
March comes in like a Lion and out
like a Lamb.  This piece is now
added to the ornament collection.
 I purchased some needle minders and a
needle box.  These are little pieces of
art and i just had to share them with
you.  Her shop is on Etsy and she does 
amazing work.


 The first time in my life i have purchased
a full set of DMC.  Joanns had them on sale
3 for .99.  I also had a 25% off the whole
order coupon.  I earned a 150 gift
card from work.  I still have 20 dollars
left on that card.  I just love a bargain.
Only a stitcher could understand this
excitement.
These guys were walking with me at the
park.  I hope everone is having a great
stitching weekend.

Stitchblisscorner- Mary Rose does an
amazing job on giving stitching history.
If you have not watched her videos you
are missing out.  I could listen to her for
hours.

If you want more details on this past week 
of my stitching, you can watch my video on
YouTube under Cindys cross stitch.  A video
gives so much more detail.

Happy Stitching Everyone
