Stitched Cure

Finally, about two years after I started it, Lizzie*Kate’s Peace, Love and a Cure is finally done!

I stitched it on white 28 count linen of some sort. (I’m really bad about labelling things, or taking good notes.) I decided to use the DMC conversion for it since, let’s be honest, I can be cheap. And, I am really pleased with the outcome.

It will most likely be sewn into a shopping bag using the fabrics above. If you have the pattern, you may have noticed that the fabric on the left is the same one shown on the cover. I looked everywhere for it, and ended up finding it somewhere nearby. (Len’s Mill’s both at the Creativ Festival, for those of you interested it. And, they still stock it!)

Somehow, finishing this gives me a bit more peace. While I worked on it a friend’s sister died of breast cancer and, as I mentioned before, a family member dealt with and overcame another type of cancer. It is silly, I know, but I feel like there is a bit more closure now.

    I second Anny’s comment. There’s something about the rhythm of stitching and watching a design come together that is so soothing. Love the final result.
