Primitive Welcome...

~ A Welcome to You... ~
my stitching friends! Please let me tell you a little story that I started telling you ~my Last Post ~
You remember the November/December Issue of Cross Stitch and Needlework Magazine...
well once again, I was flipping through the magazine and happened along this sweet design. Lo and behold it is by our very own blogging buddy and designer extraordinaire Nan Lewis of Threadwork Primitives! Well...that was good enough for me :)
 
Primitive Welcome
 
May I present my latest finish:
 
A Primitive Welcome
 
by Nan Lewis ~ Threadwork Primitives
found in the November/December Issue of Cross Stitch and Needlework Magazine
Stitched on 25 ct. Lugana
using a mix of GAST and DMC threads
 
Primitive Welcome 1
 
Now my finishing isn't exactly primitive...
but you will notice that I used some twisted twine...
 
Primitive Welcome 2
 
and I love to layer...
like I'm building a great big cake! I find it adds interest and depth to the finish.

a sweet little bow on the corner...
and a little loop of ribbon, so that I may hang it on a door in my home to welcome our guests into our home.
 
Primitive Welcome 3
 
Yep...
I'd say that turned out just like I had it envisioned in my head before I started stitching it!
With this finish...
that completes the designs that I had ear-marked in the magazine. I must admit, this is the most I've ever stitched from Cross Stitch and Needlework, in recent months (maybe even years...). I hope the publishers keep up this quality in upcoming issues! And with this finish that leaves one week and one smaller finish that I want to complete for my home before I start back on my model stitching.
 
So wish me good luck...
and I'll see you next time!
 
Hmmm...
I wonder what that last design will be??...While I stitch with my hands to work and heart to God!
 
Love in stitches,
Vonna xxx

  43. Such a beautiful finish, this issue really must be great. I live in Austria and unfortunately this is still a kind of developing country when it comes to stitching, no sign of such wonderful magazines. :-( I'm really thankful to whoever invented the internet!
