LHN Always and Forever


I stitched Always and Forever from Little House Needleworks for my mom for Christmas. My parents just celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary on Nov. 15 so I thought this was perfect. It's stitched on Sassy's 36 ct Frosted Cafe linen with Elegant Eggplant Belle Soie silk. Purple is actually my mom and my dad's favorite color. I have some dark purple fabric I'm going to use on the back and finish it as a pinkeep.

Really a nice idea. You could start a new trend of memory ornaments.

I love this one! Your finishing is beautiful!
This is one pattern that I bought a year a ago, kitted it, and somehow cannot find it in my house! Seeing this reminded me I need to look through all my stash boxes again because it is a beautiful design.
