Heaven Above

Here's my latest release I call "Heaven Above". I have a friend who has seen many of the things I've been designing lately and she feels I'm working through death issues which is probably true. My favorite part of this design is the sun which my own son designed for this piece after seeing my poor wobbly attempts at trying to create one. Hope you like it!

Nice sun/son. I like the poem too, also dealing with some death issues - 6 family members dying in 18 months.

Deborah, thanks for coming by my blog! I just discovered your designs the other day and asked my online source if she would carry them. I LOVE all your gorgeous work! Heaven Above is a beautiful piece.

I stitched your little Valentine freebie this weekend... I will send you a picture. I used 18 ct. Aida in Rue Green, WDW Red Pear, WDW Cadet, and DMC 840. It turned out very sweet!

I love your blog and will visit often.

This is gorgeous, Deborah! And your son's sun is lovely... and just perfect for this piece! :-) This is going on my Wish List...

Congrats on another lovely design! :-)

I have this piece ordered, I love it. I wondered if you could post a list of the threads if you used overdyes, it's easier for ordering. If it's DMC no worries, I can easily get that :-).

Katrina said...

Thank you very much! Now I can order the bits and pieces I need to stitch it.

Hello Deborah, I love this design, I was wondering if you came up with the verse also or is it adapted from an antique sampler. I sometimes "swap" out verses from samplers I stitch because I like the pattern/ design but not the verse. (Some of them are just too morbid for my liking)
