Picture and Pillow

One of the things I find exciting about stitching is deciding how to finish each project.  Some are obvious, some are not.  Some turn out great.....some not so great (RATS!).

Here is a photo of a pillow I made for my very best friend.  I found the free pattern on a wonderful blog,  The blog is in French, but it seems stitchers can communicate with each other no matter what language they speak.  "Amitie" means "friendship" in English.

I framed the Spirit of the Heart completed cross stitch and decided to hang it in my studio.  If anyone is interested in how I prepared the design for framing, let me know - I'd be happy to put together a tutorial so you can frame your own pieces - saves a lot of $$ - which means more to spend on floss and fabric - HA!

Now off to stitch up the St. Patrick's Day inspired design to share with you next week.
