A few weeks ago, a friend’s mom contacted me about doing a commission for her. Of course I was excited and even more so when she sent her requests.
She recently became ordained to perform weddings, and wanted me to stitch some things that would be attached to a minister’s stole for her to wear at weddings.
I really liked working on these, and my friends liked watching the progress. Because the designs are so simple and the colors are so different, it was easy for them to see how much I’d gotten done since the night before.
I forgot how much I hate metallic thread, but the effect is still beautiful.
They were done on 18ct aida and finished at 4.5×4.5 inches. I can’t wait to see the stole and some wedding pictures!
