This photo is courtesy of Bird Brain Designs.My friend and teaching partner Debbie used to sell Creative Circle stitchery products (a direct sales/home party business from the 80s). She had held on to some beautiful trays that had an oval shape in the middle for a stitchery to be inserted into, and offered me one when she heard I was doing embroidery.
I dug out my Bless Our Home pattern, and found one that fit. The pattern shows the design embroidered in blackwork, but I couldn't resist using colors.
I positively adore the sheep with the heart on it's backside! Here's the finished product inserted into the tray.
I just had to set a tea cup on it to see how it would actually work - cute and functional!
Now that this is done, I'm back to working on flour sack towels and a table runner!
Thanks for looking!
