Kindness Matters

For quite a while now I have admired a stitchery I have seen on Cheryl's blog. I emailed her and asked if she had a pattern for it and where I could get it. Cheryl emailed me back saying she had been given the stitchery by a friend and she didn't have a pattern for it. Cheryl was kind enough to send me a photo of it and here is mine, I love it. I am slowly collecting things for my "Stitching Room" which I will get when Gemma moves out in a few months. "Kindness Matters" will be put away until then.

Thank you very much Cheryl.

To answer a few questions the punch I used for my butterfly collage was bought from Big W for $8.00 it must be Australia wide as Lisa had bought one in W.A.
I will struggle with crafty things to show for a while as I have a swap present to make and 3 PIF gifts to make and a 100th post coming up soon......... you will have to endure my nature photos for a while.

Lovely stitchery - It will look great in your "Stitching Room". My sewing room doubles as the guest room and with my in-laws arriving today for the school holidays, I have had to relocate my machines to the laundry. It gave me the excuse I needed to better organise my ever increasing sewing supplies!

It looks great! I love primitive stitcheries such as yours with the small berries. I'm sure your room will be really special!

Cheryl said...

That will look great in your sewing room...I am so pleased I have a room just for me....looked like I may lose it when my daughter was thinking of moving home last year...she was lucky enough to find a house to share so I didn't have to move out (of my sewing room that is!) And kindness does matter and what a lot of it there is in blogland!

What a lovely stitchery. I think my mum is waiting for a sewing room to "become available" too.
