Stitch Me Up

When I signed up for this blog hop I got some gorgeous patterns emailed to me. There were several I wanted to make but as I was short on time I decided to make the quickest one. Good call as things have been a little busy. I love this design. I actually made a mistake when I was cutting out the stitchery and chopped one side off. After nearly having a heart attack I decided I could still use it and I really like how it turned out. I probably would not have gone the whole asymmetrical way without stuffing up. Goes to show how mistakes can definitely lead to improved designs! Here are the other participants for today.
