A Stitching Holder

I mentioned yesterday I had a finishing in mind but I had to find a pattern. My pattern hunt wasn't successful so I ended up stitching something real simple....Crafts By Dawn. :) I stitched it using Needle Necessities #183 on 32 count linen.




Once the stitching was done I was ready to try my hand at making a craft display/holder. I had bought the plaque with hooks earlier in the week but I wasn't for sure what I would end up using it for. However, as I was trying to take a picture of the door hanging yesterday I thought..."I really wish I had something to display this on when taking pictures." That is when I thought about the plaque I had and how perfect it would work. :)


Since this is a first time finish for me there are a couple of mistakes. You can see on the bottom where my trim didn't lay down nicely but I was trying to work around the hooks but it isn't too bad. Also I swear it is a trademark of mine or something but it looks a little crooked in the pictures but when I take it down (and measure it!!) it isn't. Weird. Oh well, guess I might have to make a few more just to get the finishing down.


As you can see I didn't waste anytime finding something to display!:)

Have a great night and a wonderful Easter!
