First off, I hope everyone is having a fantastic Saturday with loved ones and family. I have a sweet friend in Ohio, Rhonda who needed a pillow for a friend's daughter. She sent me the pattern and it was a fun stitch. It's of a East Indian elephant and she wants the pillow finished in that way. I'm on the hunt for the right fabric to set off the design.
I had a brain spasm when I posted that I had finished Sunbird and wasn't sure how to finish it. I received an email from a sweet lady who pointed me to different ideas.....one of them being mounted on a black piece of wood. I really must stop and think more before I post because I had the original mounting wood that Threadwork Primitives had made especially for this design.
For around the outside I used BBD chenille trim and I made a twisted braid out of it. I'm thinking it's a little too heavy for the design but it's too late now.
I have also posted three cross stitch patterns in my store if anyone is interested. Sunbird by Threadwork Primitives...... Wedding Ring Row by Lone Elm Designs.....and The Weaver's Work by With Thy Needle and Thread. Just email me if your interested in any of them.
The Weaver's Work is the design I'm just starting with the linen and silk the designer called for.
I love doing mono colored designs.
Also for those that are curious.....the toilet was a success!!!!! LOL
Enjoy your weekend,
