Peace and Plenty

I took a break from Rebecca Robinson this weekend to work on this. It's one of the designs from the new book, From Hollyhock Farms by Stacy Nash Primitives. I don't usually stitch this type of thing, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. I even stitched it in cotton thread and to my complete surprise, it didn't kill me. I'm not sure whether it will go into a frame or find itself made into a small pillow. It has a home in our master bedroom either way. The colors are perfect for it there. I plan to do the other designs, too, but I'm missing Rebecca, so they'll have to wait.

I really like that new design! (I must resist!) It's nice to have a small project to stitch as a break from the big one(s).

What a sweet little project - it's always nice to take a break from those large projects and work on something small. The feeling of completing a project is quite fulfilling.

I can't wait to see what you do with it.

Very pretty and sweet! I love her designs but have yet to stitch any...not sure why. This one is particularly lovely!

Lovely...

What type of fabric would you use if you make it into a pillow?

Daniela said...

I like this design very much. The colors are so lovely. I always stitch small designs in between of big ones. I'm excited to see what you do with it.

That really turned out well. I love Stacy's designs. Do you plan to distress it the way Stacy does her samples?

I tell you, there's something about our tastes! I debated for the longest time about whether to pick this book up. lol! Well now that you've gotten it, perhaps I'll go for it as well! Lovely finish!

How sweet! I just love this! It helps to take a break from a larger project sometimes to work on a smaller one that can be completed quickly!

That is such a cute little finish, Tanya! YGG! ROFLOL at the 'it's cotton and it didn't kill me' comment. LOL You are woman, hear you roar. I can't wait to see what you decide to do with it!

That is a really nice design. I love colors and the balance of it. It's good to break up the large projects with smaller ones!
