Petite Lettres Rouges by Blackbird Designs. This was a freebie sampler and contest piece. The contest is over, but I still wanted to stitch this design. I used my late-grandmother for inspiration who instilled the "art" in needleart, and to my mother who taught me the "work" in needlework. This is her mother ~ my mothers. I miss my grandmother very much. Her maiden name was Anna Kaufhold, born in 1917. She passed away in 2005. I borrowed the bird motif from BBD's My Heart Is True booklet. I added a heart for my love for her and the memories I embrace today. I stitched my initials and year so that in case I forget one day, as she did, how my needle came about, I'll have a reminder of times past. I think I'm going to make this into a throw pillow for my bed. I have a really pretty white eyelet cotton I'd like to use. It's lacey-looking and I think it will compliment the design. I might add some more detail and other fabrics too.
