The English Have It!

Well, here's a very cockeyed picture of a Textile Heritage piece I did some time ago. (The link is for Cross Stitch Unlimited, a shop in MA, that my Chatelaine Designs stitching friend, Lori, used to haunt, I believe...) The name of this piece in the "Tudor Hearts" collection, is Pea Pods & Butterflies, I think, and was one of those easy to carry around pieces that ended up fitting just right in this box opening. This company kits-up their pieces, so they are easy to take with you. I'm not a fan of aida cloth, but I stitched this one with it, as well as a couple of their key fobs, pin cushions and bookmarks which turned out really cute. It's a nice change/relief on the eyes and the result is very pretty. At least, I thought so, and those who saw them...stitched some too! At any rate, I thought I'd mention them because they have charts for lovely needlecases, small needlepurses, pincushions, fobs, etc... And, you can always change to any fabric you choose. Look at this one!
