Embroidery: Custom orders

While I am taking somewhat of a hiatus with custom embroidery orders right now, I recently finished up the last of the orders I had from this summer.
Here’s a little peek at them.

A custom birth announcement. The coolest thing about this one is that it is the 3rd I’ve done for this family. I did two last year for a pair of sisters and their family welcomed another baby girl this spring. It was such a gift to be asked to create this third for the trio.

A 50th anniversary. I had a daughter come to me and ask for a custom 50th anniversary portrait. This one was based on the one I did a couple of years ago for my aunt and uncle’s 60th. I even was able to find a matching metal oval hoop!

The theme for this one was daisies. So I had fun stitching loads and loads of lazy daisies!

She had a few photos of examples that she had liked and after we chatted back and forth a little I was able to come up with this design. It’s the first time I’ve stitched with these open block letters and I love the look so much. She had desired to have some little hearts on the piece based on a example that she had sent me and we opted to stitch them inside the open space in the block letters.

Her desire was to have a very natural look and so I used an unbleached muslin for the backdrop and stitched the text in a very dark grey. The hearts were a mix of turquoises, pinks and a golden yellow.

I can’t tell you want a blessing it is to hear customers declare that it was exactly what they were picturing in their heads. I feel overwhelmed with gratitude for the opportunity and ability to create for others a family heirloom that they can pass down.
