When Amanda Jean posted an in-progress shot of her gingham quilt back in 2010, I knew I had to make my own. Fast forward to last fall, to right before we moved into a new house, when I finally did. Using remnants from my stash (including scraps from our gray wedding day tablecloths), I made a mini version to hang above our bed.
I backed it with a cute Lizzy House print, hand quilted it using gray...
Last fall, I was contacted by Brides.com to create a custom cross-stitch dog bandanna for a photo shoot that would be featured on the wedding web site. I stitched one up using some lovely yellow gingham from the local five-and-dime, and after a bit of waiting, I'm happy to report that my bandanna is among the adorable wedding day accessories for dogs that are now featured in the online photo spread!

I will soon be adding a custom bandanna listing to the shop (which is now reopened after a much-needed vacation!), but feel free to contact me in the meantime if you're interested in a custom order or have any questions.
I've been experimenting with cross-stitching on fabrics other than aida cloth, and lately I've turned my attention to gingham. With its built-in grid pattern, it's the perfect backdrop for cross-stitch---and so much fun to stitch on!
