~ Primitive Bless This Home ~

Hi There! This verse is one I stitched freehand probably 20 years ago and then set aside on *the pile*. You know, you have one too, that pile of unfinished finishes that beckons you to lavish love upon it:) When I discovered it again, I felt something was lacking, so I added a motif, finished and stuffed it. This old piece turned itself into a prim and simple make-do and just the sweetest little pillow which now rests on a chair in the foyer. DMC 221 on 14 ct. Zweigart aida, color natural (discontinued), very soft aida, measures 3 inches by 11 inches. As it turns out, the 14 ct. aida that I thought was less than worthy of finishing actually did my stitchy heart good, very glad to get this out of the pile and into our home:) My brother Jeff and I had great fun on the checkerboard project as we crudely cobbled and painted it from a very old plank lovingly salvaged from my in-law's beautiful 1847 home. We of course then proceeded to crack it quite nicely in half~LOL, old planks will do that, but Jeff's biscuit handiwork patched it perfectly. Kind thanks for stopping by, always nice to see you here!

Tootles, Sue
