Hi Carol!



Has this ever happened to you?  You have a piece started somewhere in your stash...and suddenly you see someone else working on it and you think to yourself, "My goodness, that is simply gorgeous!!!"  

Well that happened to me this week.  I was at stitching group at Inspired Needle when I spied Carol working on this piece that we had received at a stitching retreat through Tomorrow's Heirlooms. (I am really lucky to have two great shops in my neighborhood!)  It is a La D Da piece.

I nearly jumped for joy knowing that I had it in my stash.  It is coming right out and I am going to start stitching on it ASAP.  

The colors in it are super special.   I just have to figure out what I want to put at the bottom instead of the name.  The name Krissy Nelson is a childhood friend of the designer.  Perhaps I will put in one of my childhood friend's names???  

Thanks to Carol for working on this on Tuesday....see what you started!!!

I love this pattern - now I want it! As for the bottom, I think you should stitch your initials on one side and the year on the other, or just move the bottom zig zag motif up a few rows.

It really is a beautiful piece. I love her designs, and this one is special. Hope she releases it to the public in another year. Have fun stitching it!

What a lovely piece! I love the idea of putting a childhood friend's name at the bottom!

Faye said...

I love this design also!!!! The photo doesn't do it justice either.... Hmmmmm... Now, maybe YOU are enabling ME!! Now, if only I had stitch shops near me..... :)

Jeanne said...

That happens to me too Laura. If only we had time to stitch everything in our stash, oh the treasures we'd have!

Deb said...

That's a great piece and Carol is quite the enabler. She's responsible for the piece that I'm working on now - Mary Gail - after I saw her finish.

Anne said...

What a great design! I wonder which childhood friend you will add!

Bekca said...

I find that happens with blogs too, you see a gorgeous design someone has posted and you just have to stitch it yourself! :)
Best wishes.

Oh, isn't this a lovely one. Not surprised you almost jumped with joy! Love when that happens.

Sharon said...

It's wonderful when that happens! It's a fantastic sampler.

I guess I started something, Laura! I haven't decided if I'll stitch a name at the bottom yet, maybe my own!
