Come Sail Away

As I typed the title for this post, I can't help but sing the song by that title in my mind...
ok, I am dating myself with that statement, but that song was a favorite way back when!!!
The little piece I am showcasing today is the freebie chart that my LNS just knew I would love. They were right...I enjoyed each & every X & I am sure I will stitch it a few more times.
It is called Sailing Alphabet" and it is by JBW Designs. It is stitched on an ornament cut of 28 ct. Morning Sun lugana from Sassy's Fabby's. The floss I used it Blue 108 from Victorian Motto Sampler.
I filled the little pillow with crushed walnut shells. I have shown the piece, laying on the fabric that I backed it with.
I have another 'new' project I want to work on, before going back to some of my WIP's....
have a wonderful weekend & thanks so much for stopping by my little corner of blogland.
