I wanted to put out a few bowl fillers the celebrate the $th of July and I wasn't too happy with my collection so I decided to open my cross stitch magazine and there was this beautiful door....well you can see what I actually stitched LOL but I do love the door. IThis little bowl filler is 2 inches by 4 1/2...pretty small. I did consider putting a little handle on it but then...I didn't think it needed it. I added the little border and I think I knew that it was done.
This is the picture of the entire design from the July 2009 Cross stitch and Needlework magazine. They are doing a collection of doors. I do love the entire design but I knew that right now I just need a little something so I choice the part I loved the most and this is what I came up with.
For now this little guy is sitting on a shelf in my kitchen. It adds a little Americana into such a small space. I really do love it.
We have been so busy with softball tourneys that I didn't even know when I would find the time to stitch but I guess it didn' take much time to do either design. Our team will be getting the second place trophy for the league this year and we are still in the running for the championship so with us luck. I have another knew design I am working on...almost done. Hope to share it tomorrow. Be blessed.
