Over the weekend I found some stitching time and added a few 'bits' to my rose-themed hussif...
All of these treatments were done using waste canvas and regular embroidery floss. I added some blending filament from Kreinik to the petals on the top rose to give it some sparkle (hard to tell in this photo).
I loved that rose so much that I decided to make a little needlebook on black using the same pattern. This one also has Kreinik blending filament. It's for a wee giftie, so hopefully the recipient will like it!
Today is a quote from Susan B. Anthony.... "Sooner or later we all discover that the important moments in life are not the advertised ones, not the birthdays, the graduations, the weddings, not the great goals achieved. The real milestones are less prepossessing. They come to the door of memory unannounced, stray dogs that amble in, sniff around a bit, and simply never leave. Our lives are measured by these"
