Yay!  That turned out so cute!  The poodles look like fun.  What's it on?

I can't wait to get mine in the mail.  Where do other people find their Aunt Martha patterns?  Someone said Wal-Mart, but I don't think I've ever seen them there...


You can get them at Wal-Mart, Michaels, Hobby Lobby, Jo Anns, Hancocks, Ben Franklins.  Just about anywhere they sell floss.

Oh cowgirl, that is CUTE! These Aunt Martha's look much cuter once you stitch them up. I love your poodle.
I don't know about all Walmarts but the ones near me have scaled the embroidery section way down and discontinued Aunts patterns and loose floss.  Huh
(I scoffed up every pattern they had for 25 cents and a bunch of floss for a penny each!)

GloryB, it looks very nice. Is it stitched or candlewicking...........what exactly is candlewicking?
Are you giving it to your grandaughter as a wall hanging?
I stitched that same unicorn on the fantasy post but it was from a different Aunt Martha pattern.

Thank you.  I have the other unicorn, too.  It faces the opposite way.  And yes, my granddaughter is getting it, who else.  It's candlewicking.  Candlewicking is just french knots, done with string.  But I used floss, 3 strands for the heavier knots, and 2 strands for the smaller knots and the outline stitch.  I love making french knots.  I found a bunch of transfers stuffed in drawer, when we cleaned out my moms house after her funeral.  It's a set that I don't remember ever seeing in a store.

I started this last night and just finished it in the car while waiting for the kids to get out of school. I left out the phrase that went with it, big modification, huh?  Roll Eyes
