Big word. And important. I am wondering why I thought the date of Aunt Jenny's passing would be appropriate on the pin tuffet. Is it? Date of birth instead? I don't know how Patty would feel so I may just extend the vine and add another flower of some sort. The date looks very nice and I prefer it, and would use Jenny's birth year if I choose that option. I changed the colors, you knew I would, but mainly because the ivory thread was not visible on the linen.
This is how I scientifically check to see how the project will fit on a 4" round mache box. Perfect. I haven't decided if I will stitch the round border, but either way 32 count fits nicely. Almost every craft store has the little 4" boxes and the tuffet can be inserted into the lip of the lid, attached to the lid's top, or with a Sudberry shaker pincushion box (here). It think 36 or 40 count would be required with Sudberry. This is a chart from 2009 so you probably already know all this.
This quick project would make a great personalized gift if their name or initials would fit. Could even transpose the name and date for a little more space, adjusting or leaving off the gold outer edge pattern.
I visited a brand new primitive/antique shop in downtown Sharon today named Vintage Folk. Bought a few items and was happy to see a Golden Doodle puppy there. Lots of kissing and puppy breath! The owner is very nice. Her Facebook page is here.
Are these two practicing yoga?
Have a nice weekend everyone.
Thanks for visiting.
