I must say, I can relate. :) Visit Suse's blog for a sweet tutorial that shows you how to stitch a phrase close to your heart. She writes in English and German, and includes some lovely memories of her father. Sweet work!
Hi, I'm floresita, editor of Feeling Stitchy. I'm an avid stitcher, knitter, and crafter. You can see more of my stitching on my blog, and find my vintage transfer collection at Vintage Transfer Finds.
Feel free to email me with any ideas for the blog!
