 By JBW Designs
This was a gift for someone who lost
A family member
 From the JCS 2011 issue
Snow Happy.  By Glory  bee
Done on a 32 ct
I changed the arm and made the nose orange
 A red cottage
By plum street samplers
I changed the design to fit the size
Of a pillow.  The house color was changed to
Gentle arts cranberry.  The called for 
Color GAST mulberry was rust colored
Not red.  So I switched it out.
 Sunshine on a stem. By hands on designs
I switched the blue to dmc 931 and picked
A red for sunshine.   Finished in brighter
 This piece was stitched by my
Stitching friend Peggy who passed away.
I do not know the pattern or linen.
I found this in a box and finished it
To a pillow.  Very pretty colors.
