Last Post of 2017

I hope you had a great Christmas!

My last pieces of the year.
The first one I did it for my mother. She really loved it!

It took me one week to plan my simple family tree sampler and other week for stitching!

Very simple, just my father, mother, me and my brother. I added the names, birthday dates and the wedding year of my parents.

The design is from Rosewood Manor – Branches of Life.
Stitched on 40 count Vanille Thieffry Linen with Au Ver À Soie – Soie D’alger number 1446.

Here is a close up of the frame:

The last piece is a design by Teresa, Primitive Acorns, she asked me if I want to stitch this one for her.

Design by Primitive Acorns – Be Free.
Stitched on 40 count Platinum with DMC floss.

Thank you so much for your support and friendship during the year!
I really appreciate your support, a big thank you for your kind words during the past year.

May all your dreams for the coming year be fulfilled! Happy New Year!
