Love Letters

Another finish! That makes four this month! 😀

Love Letter Ribbons, from CherryWood Design Studios

It is, just like it was last time, CherryWood Design Studios’ Love Letter Ribbons. The fabric is probably Enchanting Lair’s Parchment, 28 count Lugana (probably). The threads are as per the chart, except I substituted DMC 3371 for WDW Mascara.

I did make one change in the chart, purely for artistic reasons and not because I got the symbols mixed up. Honest. 😉 The row with the buttons should have been stitched in the dark brown (Mascara in the original), but I stitched it in the pink thread. I think it looks nice, and provides a nice balance to the helix row above the ribbon.

Last night I started on my last of the CWDS ribbon designs–Easter Ribbons. After that, I’m back to the Lizzie*Kate mystery and maybe Jeanette Douglas’s My Story Needlewbook. And, then the Creativ Festival is right around the corner! Woot!!


Thank you for all the good thoughts about the little man’s meet the teacher last week. It went very well, and I feel much better about everything. His teacher seems like a really lovely lady. And, really, to be a kindergarten teacher, you’ve got to be a really special person.

    I am really enjoying watching these pieces come together. They are so charming! “And, really, to be a kindergarten teacher, you’ve got to be a really special person.” You do indeed. My father has always said there is a special place in heaven for Kindergarten and beginner band teachers! 🙂
