My newest ART - stitchery for a friend....
We have very dear friends from Illinois coming to visit us today!! Yippee!! I haven't seen them since May and John hasn't seen them since we moved South. I wanted to make her something personalized. She is the head of my old ART group. We met at her house every Tuesday. Oh, how I dearly miss my Tuesdays with the girls. Her name is Hollie and she is know by reputation as "Hollie the Hugger." She loves to give hugs.....everyone is fair game!! :::smiles::: We lovingly refer to her place as "Hollie's House of Hugs". Hence the name you see on the piece. She lives in a lovely old white farm house. I pieced the stitchery together from several ideas and patterns I have seen and used a fun font called Tuna and Hot Dogs on Rye. I really like how it turned out and I hope she will too. It is easel backed so it can sit on the counter or be hung on the wall.
I have 5 more stitcheries ironed on and ready to go. They will be getting popped into my bag as we head to the beach this weekend. No way is the girl sitting in the car without something to keep her hands busy. :::Smiles::: Just sharing.....
All my ART comes from the hands, heart and mind of a Mixed Media
ARTist. I am a native of rural, central Illinois and am a recent and
grateful transplant to Central Florida. After 25 years......I have finally come "Home".
Of all the gifts I have received, God blessed me best, the day He
instilled a passion to create in my soul. Time spent in the Studio
in praise to Him and up to my elbows in glass, paper, beads, glitter and glue is the saving grace of my life. For this I am forever grateful. Shelly Rae
