Using a fine point brown pigma pen trace design onto your background fabric

You will stitch with two strands of floss

Stitch as follows:

French Knots

dusty rose

All other stitches are backstitch

                   dark green outer hearts

                   light green hearts inside dark green

                   dark blue second ring of hearts

                   light blue hearts inside dark blue

                   dark rose for all swirl flowers

 

Cut stitchery to fit inside pre-purchased picture paperweight (I got mine at Aaron Brothers art store)

Place stitchery inside paperweight & enjoy!

    This was cute. But where can we get those paperweights. Have never seen some like this anywhere.

    I’m going to have a hard time convincing one of my cats that her services are not needed! She loves sitting on my fabrics and newspapers.

    I’ve seen these paperweights in a store catering to rubber stampers. A google search located a number of places on line that carry the product.
