Well hello there. I would like to introduce you to Gabriella.
She's my latest stitchery pattern. She's elegant but sassy at the same time.
My inspiration came from my dress form Gabriella that hangs out in Bunnyville. The bunnies tell me she's loitering with the dust bunnies.
I love the scrolly metal and thought it would be fun to make a stitchery pattern.
I picked this Valdani Floss to stitch with. It's called Lime Sand. I loved the soft muted shades of the pink green and yellow. It would be cool to see a beach with that color sand!
So then I thought it would be fun to stitch her on a vintage doily and then put that on a scalloped quilt and then attach a scrolly wood piece painted white to the top! Yeah!
And then I thought about the pretty cream and yellow paisley fabric I had and how much I like to stitch on linen and I combined them to make this pillow. Fun!
Ok... so maybe I got a little carried away stitching it 3 times (can we say OCD) but it really was so much fun I just couldn't help myself.
The pattern and floss are available on my website if you'd like to stitch your own Gabriella and for those of you who need instant gratification, the wallhanging and the pillow are available too.
