Promise Me

I didn't think I would be posting so soon after my last post, but I finished 'Promise Me'. I love this saying! I grew up with Winnie the Pooh and he is dear to my heart. This saying is from Christopher Robin to Winnie the Pooh.

 photo CSC_2115_zpsf643ccaf.jpg I did change the colors and two things in the pattern.(no surprise there)There was a heart in the upper right hand corner and I changed it to a Bee.  photo CSC_2116_zpse2a04dac.jpg I wanted my stitchery too be more 'Winnie the Pooh' like... so I also changed the basket at the bottom to a honey pot with honey running down the sides.  photo CSC_2117_zps69c1bb4a.jpg Here is what the pattern from Lizzie * Kate looks like....  photo DSC_2113_zps0d4ba64e.jpg Here is my work/sketches trying to figure out how to stitch a bee and honey pot....  photo CSC_2119_zps65a44953.jpg So now to find a frame or take it to a framer and have them do it... I'm not sure yet. I do love it and can't wait to hang it on the wall.  photo CSC_2115_zpsf643ccaf.jpg
