Since I’m a quote freak, I’ve been looking forward to this book—Words to Stitch By from Lori Markovic, ever since I heard the rumor of it. Then, I saw the goodies our photo models were stitched with—

Take a peek at the projects—
By Her Hand
Mares Eat Oats (Of course, now this song is running repeatedly through my head...“Mares eat oats, and does eat oats, and little lambs eat ivy. A kid’ll eat ivy too. Wouldn’t you?”
The Tie That Binds (Love is the tie that binds.)
My Friend (Like a kite feels the wind. You are my friend.)
Roses Are Red (Love the roses and poem, “Roses are red, violets are blue, sugar is sweet, and so are you.” I’ve got a sweet friend who has been making things for me lately. Maybe I’ll stitch this for her.)
Nice Matters (I just like this sentiment. My family makes fun of me when I, evidently naively, ask, “Why can’t people just be nice to each other?”
My Sunshine (You are my sunshine, my only sunshine...”
Merry Sunshine (Good morning merry sunshine. Why did you wake so soon? You chase all the stars away & shine away the moon.)I really had planned to start stitching some of the projects in Lori’s first book–All Creatures Stitched and Small. Now, I’m wanting to work on these, too!
