Hello fellow crafters. Just wanted to let you know that I have added a new item to my Etsy shop, eCrossStitchPatterns.
My latest item is a cross stitch pattern that I designed for a dear friend of mine. After stalking her Instagram profile, I discovered that one of her favorite flowers is the magnolia. Since it is spring time here in Vancouver, BC and the magnolias are just starting to bloom, I decided to design a cross stitch project to show my gratitude for our friendship.
The quote is from American poet Erin Van Vuren:
I will not be another flower,
picked for my beauty
and left to die.
I will be wild
difficult to find
and impossible to forget.
I cannot even begin to tell you how difficult it was to find and settle on a quote. But, at the end of the day (actually it took a week to choose the quote!), I kept going back to this quote. Something spoke to me here as I was thinking of my beautiful, incredible friend.
The pattern fits into a 5″ x 7″ picture frame, uses 14 colors, and includes cross stitches and back stitches.
Have a look!
