A finish...for a teacher gift

The last 2 days of school is in sight. I finished up the teacher gift which Robert (oldest son) is going to give his "core" teacher (the 7th grade "core" teacher is responsible for English & History). We wanted to show our appreciation for everything she did and all the support she showed Robert during the year, especially since he was gone over 20 days of school due to the hockey tournaments. Robert will take this and a gift certificate to her favorite coffee shop to give to her tomorrow.

Designer: Lizzie Kate
Pattern: "Teaching is a Work of Heart"
Fabric: Navy Blue 25ct Linen
Thread: Various DMC Varigated (chose my own color scheme)
Finish: I finished it as a little pillow and created a beaded hanger, which I attached at the corners. The charm says "follow your heart" on one side and "live, love, laugh" on the other.

I really enjoyed stitching this and finishing it. I hope that she likes it.

On another stitching note...I finally sat down and took time to restart my Friendship Sampler for the RR. I need to get my heart stitched on it so that I can get it re-introduced into the cycle of the RR. In addition, I do have an Karin's RR to stitch over the weekend to get in the mail as well...both are due to be sent by the 15th.

Have a good evening! Lisa

Very cute! I always think about stitching something for my DS' teacher for the end of school year, but never get around to it!
