I’ve had the privileged lately to custom design a few embroideries with such great stories. It is always so fun and amazing to be able to take what someone has had pictured in their heads and create it for them. This family mission statement was such a project.
This wife approached me wanting to have their family mission statement embroidered for their upcoming wedding anniversary. She had a few photos of examples that she had liked and after we chatted back and forth a little I was able to come up with this design. It’s the first time I’ve stitched with these open block letters and I love the look so much. She had desired to have some little hearts on the piece based on a example that she had sent me and we opted to stitch them inside the open space in the block letters.
Her desire was to have a very natural look and so I used an unbleached muslin for the backdrop and stitched the text in a very dark grey. The hearts were a mix of turquoises, pinks and a golden yellow.
I can’t tell you want a blessing it is to hear customers declare that it was exactly what they were picturing in their heads. I feel overwhelmed with gratitude for the opportunity and ability to create for others a family heirloom that they can pass down.
