Luckily for me, I do have some 'secret' stitching to show you. This was a design that I was asked to do for Craftseller magazine and of course I can't show you it, or even talk about it, until the magazine has been published.
I was asked to do a 'Home Sweet Home' sampler, and here it is.....
The strong bright reds in the lettering and the border, are not the colours I would normally use and in fact, I had designed it using lilac blues. The editor requested the colour change, which meant that the colour of the flowers had to change too. Part way through stitching it, I wasn't sure if the colours I had picked were going to work....not a good feeling!
This is the way it looked before the back stitching...
Thankfully, I stuck with it and once the back stitching was done it looked so much better!
Here's the stitching all framed and with the magazine.
I have another sweet project in next months Craftseller magazine, but until then I have to keep 'mum'!! lol
Thanks for stopping by.
Until next time...happy stitching!
