Long Distance Friends .....

I finished this cute little stitchery in time to send off to it's new owner for Christmas.  She reads my blog sporatically so fingers crossed she doesn't figure it out before she opens it.




It's a pattern by JAM (Jo Ann Mullaly) .  I first saw the pattern on Darlene's blog and just had to have it.  Of course, I changed a few things.  The original had just used one color.  I suppose to give the maker a chance to use their imagination.  I added the cross-hatching and french knots to the dresses to give them a little more character.

I hope she likes it!

Blessings, Cathi

I'm not sporatic...I think I'm here regularly so it isn't mine. I'm sure whoever receives this will love, love, love it! Nothing like a gift made from the heart and hands!

ps....pretty little b-day wrapped pkg sitting here with my name on it.

I love the multiple colors and it's such a sweet saying (I clicked on it to read it better). I'm sure she'll love it. It turned out wonderful.
