Now I Lay Me ...

Now I Lay Me ...
La-D-Da
Copyright 2003 Lori Markovic

Pattern suggested Sampler Threads -- design size 104w x 144h. I stitched this on 28-count (packaged linen by DMC). DMC flosses used: 317 & 318 [greys]; 782 & 783 [golds]; 3051 & 3052 [greens]; 221 & 3722 [reds]; 310 & 3799 [dark border]. The buttons in the corners were Mill Hill [I think]. They were given to me by a friend & were an excellent embellishment on this pillow. The fabric was from my stash -- had multiple blue & grey shades plus sparklies.

Actually, the colors in the photo [below] are more accurate. Cameras and lighting seem difficult, today!!


Still snowing here. It should end sometime this afternoon/evening & sounds like we are in for another rain-sleet-ice storm Saturday night into Sunday morning.

It is very pretty. Wow, I love seeing your stitching won awards. They deserved the best.

Suzanne said...

What a great design and finish. The buttons are great and really finish it off beautifully.

Look at all that snow, wow! I would so love to have a white Christmas, but it will never happen here. I always get excited seeing snow, but that's because I don't have to live through it every year!

Very pretty finish!

Sue said...

Sweet!!!!! As far as your snow goes...at least people know how to drive in it where you are...most likely.

Such a cute pillow!

You've been stitching up a storm lately - great finishes!

We've received quite a bit of snow up here too - expecting more tomorrow. Of course, life in MN goes on, regardless of the snow!

What a fun finish, the fabric and buttons you found for it are perfect.

Not sure what weather we're going to get here. They have been saying snow/sleet for two days and just moving the start time along as it hasn't hit yet. I'm hoping it doesn't hit real early tomorrow morning so that I have to drive in it to work. A 45 min. commute when the weather is nasty takes so much longer and by the time I get to work I'm so stressed I just want to scream.
