I think one of the worst things about the holidays is having completed projects but have to wait to share them with everyone until they are opened by the recipient. Makes it seem like I'm doing nothing in the creative department. It is time to reveal another gift I stitched.
This piece is called Remember Well A Constant Friend is Hard to Find - A Laura Ingalls Sampler by Nathalie (Nathaliepoppy/The Blue Attic). Just click on the link to her Etsy shop to discover her lovely line of primitive designs. I happened upon these designs purely by accident when browsing through Etsy and am so happy I discovered them. As soon as I saw this particular design, I knew I had to stitch it for my BFF, Allison, who is a HUGE Laura Ingalls Wilder fan. Let's be honest who in the midwest didn't grow up watching Little House on the Prairie and fall in love with "half pint". It was a delightful and quick stitch. I used the called for DMC colors and stitched it on a piece of 32 count overdyed fabric I had in my stash.
I decided to finish it into a block so it could be displayed on a shelf or a table. My only regret is I didn't attached something to hang it by on the back in case she wants to hang it instead. I will know better next time.
Now off to pull my supplies for the valentine primitive I just purchased from Nathalie.
Oh, before I go I will be posting a new recipe on my cooking blog for a new soup I made last night. It is called Stuffed Pepper Soup and it was DELICIOUS!
