Many of us are living our lives by the motto of "making do with what you've got!"... When I saw this freebie listed on Beth Twists blog Friday, I felt like it really must be my weekend project.... Beth stressed that everyone should be creative with their colorways, using threads we had on hand and just putting our own spin on her design....Here is my interpretation....
Make it Do....Heartstring Samplery
36 ct coffee dyed linen
threads listed below
I did end up changing threads and here is what I went with...
Called for I used
GAST Pumpkin Patch CC Pumpkin Harvest
GAST Daffodil GAST ButterCrunch
GAST Adobe GAST Adobe

GAST Woodrose GAST Woodrose
GAST Pomegranate GAST Holly Berry
GAST Butternut Squash CC Gingersnap

The point is to use what you have on hand, so use whatever you feel is right for you~~
I did want to share my exchange piece to Pat (no blog)from a couple weeks ago...She and I had a private exchange and I posted the beautiful BBD piece she stitched for me a couple posts ago.... She notified me that she received my exchange package and here is a peak of what I mailed to her....
Summer Star Pincushion and mini pincushion
A Stitchers Journey
The smaller initial pincushion is for Pat to use in her traveling stitch bag...It is small and just the right size to toss into her bag and have a little something to plant that needle in when changing thread colors... Both are filled with crushed walnut shells...I wanted to show the rickrack detail on the edges...The Robins Egg Blue hand-dyed trims by Victorian Motto matches the BBD designs so well.... I also included one of my homemade pins....
Hope everyone had a great Easter and got back in the routine today....I had alot of fun with family and these two sweeties.....
Have a great week everyone and Happy Stitching...........
