happy 60

My aunt and uncle are getting ready to celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary. As much as we tried to make it happen, a trip to California wasn’t in the cards for us to help them celebrate in person. So my parents are delivering a special gift from me…

I took my little family people and this newspaper clipping and stitched up the happy couple.

They are stitched with a combination of rayon floss and cotton floss and I added some beads for my aunts pearl necklace and her veil headdress.

Her wedding flowers were sweet peas and gladiolas. So I tried my hand at stitching up a gladiola on the bottom and stuck with her colors of salmon/peachy and yellow for the rest of the little flowers.

This has been on my hoop for the past 3 weeks and while it was fun to do I am not sad to see it done! I love how these big embroideries turn out, but man oh man they wear me out!

This was a second year anniversary gift for the client’s husband. The pink was requested to match their wedding colors; black and pink.

I also redesigned the original pattern with a different version of Scripture that she was looking for. I kind of like this redesign better! Isn’t that the way it works?!
