    I love how this looks,  I wasn't to sure about the colours used for the leaves but once they are stitched they are just right.   I also made a mistake too and have left it there as I was too lazy to frog.  The word Wisdom is supposed to be the lighter pink colour.  But I quite like it in the dark plum colour.

    Some Kind of Wonderful Book

    I loved stitching this block.  It tooke me back to my youth when life was fancy free and we had not a care in the world.  The pace of life was definitely slower and then there were the days at the beach working on a tan.   I remember my first pair of jeans with flared bottoms, a matching denim jacket and a checked red shirt.............the height of fashion

    Peace, Love, Sentimental Xmas Duo
    Designer: Jenny Reynolds
    Handmade Vol 29 No 8

    I started these last year,  I love the sentiments in these and they are too beautiful to only bring out at Christmas time and I am going to hang them in my craft room. They were really simple to make. I couldn't get the artist's canvas the same size that was used in the original and I had to be careful and cut the material slightly bigger.
