I had the honor of being asked to make a commemorative pillow for a couple's upcoming engagement. The criteria were: camping, travel, Minneapolis, and an engagement ring.
So, the sketch was sent for approval...
And love was embroidered amongst colors and patterns…
Including the Minneapolis skyline, a lake (sans giant mosquitos),
And a tent! (I told the Husband I'd like to keep this one for us.)
Stitches used: stem stitch, zig-zag back stitch, chain stitch, cross stitch, and an inter-laced running stitch.
It certainly helped that the client was so very easy to work with and had great ideas, herself.
Cheers to new beginnings and past memories. Thank you for the privilege!
To the month of Love,
