When I start a project with a pattern, I always intend to follow the pattern. But something happens along the way... sometimes I make it larger or smaller, sometimes I change a color, sometimes I add/delete/change a motif. I don't plan on it it just sort of... happens. I can't help myself. Somehow the urn of berries became an urn of acorns and an oak leaf. Bees appeared by the letter "B". The dog grew longer (that might have something to do with the dachshund on my lap.) A color changed. I guess it is just a part of the creative process. I love the original, that's why I decided to stitch it in the first place. It just somehow slightly morphs thru my needle... You can see the original on Country Sampler's website here.
There are a few more days to enter my latest giveaway. Click here if you would like to enter. I am hoping to add a few more items to my Etsy shop before the giveaway, so that the winner has a good selection to choose from. It's homecoming weekend at my son's high school (and my alma mater). The football game is Friday night and I figure I'll have plenty of time to draw the winner Saturday night while waiting for him to return from the dance...
Have a lovely early autumn weekend!
