Charlotte Clayton


Here she is - CHARLOTTE CLAYTON - in all her stitched glory. I love, love, love her. And two of my favorite motifs...the CATS! The entire sampler was so much fun to stitch...tiny dogs, huge cats, huge birds, and a tiny lion.



Charlotte will be on her way to Jill Rensel in Utah along with Rejoice Always Rejoice, Ira Ray Crow, 'Tis the Season, Winter Cardinal, Stitcher's Prayer, Sail Away, Finch Song, and Earth Gatherer. Jill just shakes her head when I send an order to her for framing!. Sounds like another party in the fall to oohh and aahh over her framing!

Thanks for stopping by!

Oh, Cari! I love your Charlotte, she's GORGEOUS!!! You did a fantastic job on her! You are such an inspiration to me...I just got done about a week ago, purchasing the threads I need for her. Now, I just have to get busy! What fabric/threads did you use? Hope mine turns out as beautifully as yours :-)

Cari, you inspired me to a restart! I didn't like the fabric my Charlotte was stitched on, so I stopped and stuffed it away, and yours is so beautiful, I had to try again! As always, you are simply fabulous!
