Whilst at Market I presented a schoolhouse session (they are like educational sessions for storeowners and their staff) on the therapy of Stitching. Many of you who know me would know I stitch every night for my therapy. I think we all stitch for different reasons but we all get satisfaction and some therapy from the process.
When I started Hugs ‘n Kisses my tagline was ‘feelgood stitcheries and associated thingys!’ and I try to keep this in mind when designing all of my work. How might it help the person who will be making or displaying this?
so, with this in mind
I thought it was time to show you all one of my new designs released at market.
Lori – my saviour and Office Manager asked if I could design this especially for her close friend Keri who lost her battle with Breast Cancer last year. Keri had given Lori, many years before a small cushion with this verse on it.
50c from every pattern sold is going to be donated to Breast Cancer Australia – so not only do you get to experience therapy whilst stitching this project, you will also be making a difference.
I have stretched this version over an inexpensive Artists canvas and stapled the edges onto the frame at the back. I have also stitched a redwork version which is made into a small hanging which would be a great gift for that special friend in your life. The instructions are included for both versions in the pattern along with that ‘have to have’ iron on transfer.
Its available here now or ask at your local store…
Why do you stitch? I’d love to know…
hugs for today
