Designer Spotlight~ Hands on Design~

Greetings friends.....

Yesterday was fantastic!!! Meeting up with the other Carolina Girls.... Karen, Nicole,Linda & Charlene... We managed to get in a little retail therapy at Stitch n Frame in Rock Hill SC.... What a wonderful cross stitch shop! Truly worth the drive~

I wanted everyone to remember our first gathering of 2014 with a handmade goodie.... A cute design by Hands on Design....
Autumn Wreath by Hands on Design

I filled the pin pillows with sawdust.... And, I used the specified DMC threads along with soft blue & coral cotton fabrics....

And, I added antique hand crocheted lace for an extra detail...

And, as seen in Pinterest, I taught myself to make those wool penny pins~ just another added detail....

Between shopping, eating and stitching for hours..... We had the best time~

Until then, be happy~ stay warm~ and keep stitching!

What sweet pillows. I love Stitch and Frame; my in-laws live just up the road in Charlotte, so every time we visit we make a run to the S&F. Super nice shop ladies.
