Sisters Are Special

For my sister Sarah who recently celebrated a special birthday! It was to be an extra little something for her on the day, but with Colin only being home for 9 days before having to leave again for another couple of months to work overseas, I didn't quite get to finish it in time!



The design is Wee Sister by Heart In Hand. I've stitched it 1 over 2 on 40ct Lakeside Lentil using the recommended Weeks Dye Works and Gentle Art Sampler Threads and finished it again as one of my favourite finishes - another little tasseled pillow! The tassels were made using DMC 3041. You can't really tell from the photo but it's not very big so turned out quite cute!

Thank you for stopping by again! :o)

It's lovely Carol, the colours are so pretty, unfortunately I don't have any sisters to stitch for and not sure that my 2 older brothers would be very appreciative of something so pretty! xxx

Carol, what a sweet little finish. I think it turned out great. Your tassels add a neat touch. Are those hard to make?
Take Care and I am sure Sarah will enjoy it.

Great finish and beautiful sentiment. My sister is my best friend and I love her to pieces but she would open her closet and toss in anything I stitched even for her. LOL LOL Did I mention my sister and I are night and day? I would love to stitch something...anything or her. Maybe one day she will come around. Not holding my breath here. :)

hug
