When I first saw a photo of A Little Love by Lizzie Kate, I knew it was the perfect project to stitch for my husband’s 100th birthday. I did not want to order the kit because I do not like stitching on linen so posted to the 123Stitch Message Board. Someone on the Board had just finished stitching it and was willing to sell me just the chart for $5 which included postage. Rather than use the recommended floss, I chose to use DMC because I already had all the colors on hand. I ordered the small flower button that had been a part of the kit and I already had some small rose colored beads. For the fabric I chose a piece of 28 ct antique white probably lugana but not sure since it came from another kit. It was a fairly quick stitch but I had to work on it at night after Jim was in bed so he would not see it.
Pictured below the background is actually white although it does not look like it. I normally stretch and frame my own work but since this is for a very special man on a very special occasion, I am sending it off to Jill Rensel to work her magic on. I’ll post a picture once I get it back.
The finished piece framed by Rensel Studios I will give it to Jim as soon as it is delivered rather than wait for his birthday.
