For this hop we were provided wonderful designs to choose from. The designs were created by Cyndi from Stitch, Stitch, Stitch, and Debbie from Busy as can Be. The sponsors are Colonial needle and Presencia Threads. I chose to stitch Bee Tree Designs, Elements, it has such a vintage look to me. I love vintage embroidered linens and display them around my home. This sweet design provided the perfect opportunity to stitch a Spring runner for my Easter table. I used a pastel palette of presencia finca size 12 perle cotton and colonial needles for all of my embroidery.
I love the simplicity of this design and the way it flows so I shaped the corners of my runner to enhance the look. The fabric is 100% linen backed with white Kona Cotton.
I made a generously sized runner so that I could place my table decorations on it without covering up or obscuring the embroidery.
