Our Anniversary

Today is our 4th anniversary. Instead of going out, my hubby and I spent the time at home with our kids and cooked his favourite meal.

For this year's memento, I stitched a mini banner. The pattern is simple yet attractive, which caught my eyes when I was browsing some French stitchers blogs (who blogs in French) last time. Eventhough there is only a French word or two that I barely know, I guess the language of needlecraft is universal (plus with the help of Google translator of course *wink*). Then I came across with BlueTurtle's freebie pattern '9 de coeur' (the 9 hearts). You can click here for the link. There some other nice freebie patterns as well.

'9 de coeur' - I stitched on 28ct linen using Dip&Twist overdyed flosses by Needle Odyssey and embellished with some red seed beads. I personalised it with our (my hubby and I) initials and wedding date.

Happy Anniversary, Zalita! That is such a pretty memento for you both. I did a sampler for our 25th anniversary last year, and put the finishing touches to it the night before. I had kept it out of Ken's sight right up until then and the next day when I presented it to him, the first thing he said was "that's nice. Did you do it?" I said "Oh no - the dog did! Of course I stitched it!" Men...

Happy Anniversary to you and your DH! You made such a beautiful banner! The fabric and fibers you used are gorgeous. I went to check out the original pattern and you did a wonderful personalization of it.

Most important: Happy Anniversary Zalita and congratulations!
