I stitched this for my partner in the "Sublime Stitching Embroidery" Swap. The pattern is from Artist Series # 9 by Carson Ellis. Have I ever mentioned how much I love her work?!
The banner says, "Love" in Russian.
If you aren't familiar with Carson Ellis, check out her website by linking on her name above. Oh, and read this short interview!
Thanks for looking. I'll be back later with some thriftacular finds because after all, it is Thursday. See you soon.
