Happy Dance

Hi Everyone

I've finally finished the wedding pillow!  I know you can't believe it!  I gave it to my daughter just before there first wedding anniversary.  I also managed to make a card for them.  As you can imagine she was delighted with it.  This is my largest Hardanger project I have ever done.  I could not find a design with hearts and butterflies for a wedding, so I found some old patterns that I had and merged them together.  I've changed some of the filling stitches to the butterfly and I am quite pleased with the outcome.  There are also lots of little pearl beads that give the pillow a nice sparkle.  Here are some photos for you to see.


Here are some Easter Freebie designs that you might like to stitch.

This free design can be found at Kreinik - click here.

A Colourful Band Sampler Easter Bunny can be found here.

Happy Stitching Everyone and have a very Happy Easter.
