A Dutch Design Motif

This afternoon I worked on this motif. The colors are Simply Shaker (GA-Liberty), Crescent Colors cotton--Blacksmith Blue, Crescent colors Tennessee Red Clay, and GA Gold Leaf. Stitch on whatever linen you prefer. I will probably select a vintagey fabric or an antique white.
I have these colors alot in our home and hope to make into an ornie for the Christmas tree this year.
After Christmas (or before) you can easily use as a pinkeep or bowl filler.
Hope you enjoy too!

A Dutch Motif--September

Please do not sell patterns if put on the blog. They are my original work and duplicated by needle and thread or printed copies for free for your enjoyment. This should print well. If not, please let me know.

 If you stitch and want to share your finish, please email me and I will share here on the blog if you would like. If you stitch, please credit to Feathers in the Nest.
Thanks so much!
