Aug 4/10


I am very enamored with Joan Elliott these days, having recently purchased two of her books. Her designs are cute without being too cutesy and her sayings are funny and witty. This design comes from "Cross Stitch Wit and Wisdom". I stitched it on 28 count Lugana with threads from my mystery box so the colours are somewhat similar but not really as I look at the book photo once or twice to get the gist of the colour scheme before I match up colours according to what I have available.



I came back to add this photo which is also a Joan Elliott. Ornament stitching season is underway at my house!
