I just finished my Friendship Collaboration Sampler. As I stated in my last post this piece was the work of three designers ~ Shepherd’s Bush, Charland Designs and Just Nan.
The verse is:
Though far apart
Still close in heart
Friends will ever be
Here is a snap of Part I:
This section, designed by Shepherd’s Bush has, along with all of the specialty stitches already mentioned (in previous post) has a darling little sterling silver “Shepherd” Charm.
Part II is designed by Charland Designs. Along with regular cross stitching it has specialty stitches: Long Arm Cross, Circular Eyelet, Pulled Double Back Stitch, Algerian Eye, Satin Hearts, Small and Large Smyrna Cross and Alternating Mosaic. Attached in the middle is a sterling silver double heart which is also a Charland Design.
And Part III was designed by Just Nan. Along with the specialty stitches of Hungarian Variation, Round Satin Eyelet, Rhodes Hearts and Herringbone Stitch there is a sterling silver Peacock button attached.
And here is a snap of the stitching completed.
This piece will go into the pile of “to be completed when the sewing machine gets home from the doctor”. I also need to find the bell pull hardware for it somewhere. I have checked online and nothing really blows my skirt up. Maybe my LNS or Hobby Lobby may have something. I plan to check there this weekend.
The pond ... again.
