This is Letter's By Nora - Letter C. I did this for my daughter Chelsea. Chelsea is seven and she chose this fabric - High Noon by Sunny Dyes Fabrics of Youthful Hand Needleworks. I think this turned out really sweet. It has a lot more back stitching than a typical Nora design, but it really made the design pop.
|I used for the most part the called for threads, I did substitute the flower for a variegated DMC that I had. Chelsea chose this as well.|
|I love this shot. I like being able to see the blending of the colours on the fabric mixed with thread and beads.|
|Another pretty close up shot|

Finally a little Easter treat for myself. I got some pieces framed. Our local framing shop will allow you to bring in store bought frames and put the pieces in for you! I picked up frames for these after Christmas with the intention of doing it myself, but I never got around to it. So finally I dropped them off and a few days later I'm so glad I did! Here is Charlotte and Queen Mermaid.
As you can see they sit nicely on the wall with my Red Lady Pirate.
I am anxiously awaiting a package from Colours By Lalena which has a whole bunch of goodies for me to work on...mainly my Rosewood Manor Autumn Sampler, my next installment of the Frosty Forest and two new Nora Corbett patterns.
Remember to just keep stitching and thanks for reading!
