This detail is from a finish recently posted by a Canadian stitcher who blogs at Leftover Chocolate Stitches. That is a great blog name, by the way. She remains anonymous, but her stitching speaks for itself. She has taken a simple Lizzie Kate design the “ABC’s of Aging Artfully” and made it so much more by adding charms and other embellishments to make it very special. Head over to her blog to see the entire project and even more details from it that show the other charms and specialty flosses and stitches she used to add oomph. See how she went beyond the cross-stitch. Go check it out. And, special thanks to the Kreinik Facebook page for pointing this post out in the first place. Visit them too.
