So many of you have asked about the photo of the lady in the corner of my blog header. . . . . .she is a new pattern that we ship with our other patterns on Monday next week. Let me tell you about her and what makes her so special. . . . .
I love mixed media styled artwork. It's fun, a bit eclectic and very individual to the person creating it. So I thought of a way for each of you to create a personalized design that you could place in an easel and call your own. What you get in the package is the pattern for the lady. While you are stitching her, imagine what you would like to see her holding on a length of ribbon or thread. Would it be a miniature portrait of someone you love? Would it be a spectacular collection of odd buttons? Or maybe an an antique brooch. The choice is completely your own.
I bought two packs of jewelry finds at Michael's to show you a few options. The inset photo shows the second way I set her up. Just follow the directions on the pattern for attachment. . . .it's easy!
I hope you'll love this pattern as much as I do.
