With You I am Home

I know it is not Stitching Saturday but I wanted to share this freebie from Cathy Haberman at Hands on Design.  In addition to the freebie, she sent this little package to the first 100 people who sent in a SASE for the extra.

I stitched the chart in one evening but I did change up the colors a bit.

Pardon the wrinkles. I always pull a thread to help me know where to stitch my seams. ( You may see in the background one of my favorite Brit Coms, To the Manor Born.

And here it is completed. I did add three small red hearts at the top of the piece as a symbol of our three children.

What stitcher does not enjoy a free chart??

Arlene, I received the button minus the fabric but I'm sure I have something in my stash that will work as well. Do you work fast!!! I'm impressed that you have it sew up already! Love that you added 3 hearts for your 3 children, that's a nice sentimental touch.

What a great idea to pull a thread for a seam line. I am going to have to try that. I just eyeball it but I think this is a much better way to get the placement of the seams nice and even. I learned something new today!! Thank you!!

It did turn out beautifully and I love your idea of adding the three small red hearts. Even more meaningful!

Praying for you, Arlene! Hope your weekend is as comfortable as possible as you await Monday's surgery.
