Petites Lettres Rouges finished


This was such a fun stitch. I think I found the freebie on Thurs. of last week. I knew right away I had to stitch it. I have been waiting for the perfect piece for a special sampler. This was the one!!!!!! So, I started it on Friday & finished it this am.
I chose my favorite three colors to stitch it. I used Victorian Motto Sampler Flosses. I used # 120 for the green, I used varigated violet for the purple & I used rose pink#5 for the pink.
I tea/coffee dyed my fabric. The motifs in it symbolize myself & the person who will receive this piece someday. It will not be for a while thou!!!! (after I am no longer around!!!)
Thanks for looking & have a great day!

Beautiful finish. I want to stitch this piece using Vonna's idea which is to add my grandmother's name and DOB to the piece, but I won't get it started just yet. I can't settle on a color to stitch it in and I'm thinking I want some darker brown dyed fabric. Maybe I'll find something to inspire me on the hop next week.
Happy Stitching!
