Prior to Seminar, I worked on stitching up a gift for another friend’s birthday. Her birthday was the day before Seminar, so I brought her gift with me to the hotel. She loves black and white, so I decided I would stitch one of the Quaker Pendants from Milady’s Needle in that color scheme.
I used black NPI on 36 count Attic Lace, over one. I really thought this design was stunning in the stark contrast of the black and white.
Once stitched, the piece is placed in one of the pendant frames also from Milady’s Needle with a small piece of scrapbook paper behind the stitched piece.
I think she loved her gift, and when she wore it on Friday with a black and white outfit she coincidentally brought with her, she received lots of compliments on the pendant. Now, I may have to make one for myself in black…hmm…
I am grateful for having time to stitch.
