Stitchingly ever after
COUNTED CROSS STITCH CHART BY BARBARA ANA DESIGNS
"Stitchingly ever after" is a beautiful tribute to needlework by Barbara Ana. It is designed to be signed by the stitcher (with an initial in the tiny hoop) and dated (at base of tree).
The piece is a collection of sorts of stitcher's treasures, including a pincushion and emery bag, no fewer than 3 pairs of scissors, a hoop holding a stitched piece, a spool of thread and a tiny threaded needle. Birds, butterflies and flowers also grace the pattern.
The lady stitcher and her cat stand at the foot of the tree. The text running from the spool is "Stitchingly ever after". The tiny scissors are stitched with rainbow gallery Petite treasure braid.
