A wedding gift - Sparkle and shine

 The Pattern is by Little House Needleworks
Quaker Birds
The Linen I used it Babbling Brook Jobelan
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 

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

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.
