My stitched Winter Tapestry Pillow

It's no secret I'm a fan of turquoise. Seriously, it's all over my house. I'm a sucker for all things vintage as well, and I adore anything that's part of the Arts and Crafts Movement. A little over five years ago, designer Marie Barber sent this design to me in her classic black-and-white symbol chart. I pulled her suggested colors, and I was immediately hooked. I couldn't wait to see it completed in person. To be honest, I actually contracted my mom as the model stitcher for it so that I could watch it come to life before my eyes. As each bud and leaf bloomed, I was constantly amazed at our beloved craft and how something as simple as making Xís on fabric could create such beauty. I actually ended up stitching it for myself and finishing it in the exact same way shortly after because I needed it on my sofa. It's still in that place of honor years later, and I think that's what makes me smile when I think about stitching it. The design is composed fully of cross stitches and will come together more quickly that you might imagine. If you're not a fan of turquoise, how about changing it up with reds or dark blues? Remember, each project is your own. Enjoy!
