Spring Stitchery from a Freebie!


I was thinking about painting and decided to look at free patterns and tutorials on the web, to see if anything sparked my interest. I found this fun design and realized it would make a great stitchery. I found the pattern at Artist's Club under free patterns. They have everything from simple to more advanced painting as well as books and supplies if you are looking to add to your collection.

I had some empty space, so I added a few little quilted areas and a vine at the top. I wanted to fill in the boot holes with antique medium to darken them, but it spread out too much. I was also thinking of adding some little embroidered flowers to the branch?

You have such a knack of taking a design and seeing something else that can be done with it.

Great job, Debbie. Are you planning on sewing all your stitcheries into a quilt?

That is such a cute idea! I would have never thought to do a stitchery out of something that is to be painted! What a great idea! And yours is so cute! You are so talented! Thanks for sharing!
