So I've been working away on the tea towel tour but while all that was going on my best friend decided to move away and I wanted to make him something to put up in his new home...both of these are Sailor Jerry designs the Ace of Spades took around 8 or so hours and the Love Thy Neighbor was in the realm of about 20 hours.

I hope you like them...I was really stressed about the Love Thy Neighbor piece and I'm not sure what I think about my shading but I am glad I gave it a shot.



this baby features the trellis stitch ... and wanted to post it on here because I originally saw the blue/black embroidery floss combination here on craftster some time ago and loved it and this was the first time I got to try a version of this effect out.

thanks  Cool Smiley

I should clarify that with the fact that i am one of the worlds slowest stitchers and that I regularly remove stitching if it doesn't work for me.  Plus, it makes the time I spend watching TV seem more productive!

my friend over the years has always had a tenuous relationship with his neighbors and so the design is definitely his version of Home Sweet Home Wink
