Primitive Embroidery

Here's a little primitive embroidery piece I "whipped up" Friday night for one of the walls in my craft room.
The saying comes from an Irish blessing I saw on Etsy sometime last year. 
I lightly drew the design on a piece of muslin and then stitched over it with my embroidery floss.
I then mounted it on a piece of cardboard covered in blue gingham. 
The frame is a make-over one from the thrift store.
I love how the uneven letters, free-handed border, and frayed edges make it "feel vintage."

Well, I wish I could "whip up" something like this too :) It's very charming and looks so perfect in your craft room!

It's always a joy seeing what you have been up to - enjoy your week!

It's perfect! I love how you see something you like and then make it yourself. :)

I just love this! I also have one, not one that I made but I love it anyway.

I wish I could whip up anything so lovely and then have it hung. Thank you for joining us this week at Word Art Wednesday. Blessings, Carole

It will be, as long as the Tiede's live on the Shore!

You did a wonderful job on that embroidery project. It's so pretty hanging on the wall. Thank you for blessing us with your artwork this week at Word Art Wednesday. Would love to see you join us again in our next Challenge. Leaving you with a blessing from God's Word in Joshua 1:9- "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Hugs always!
