Grimes Ghost is in this Post!

"Grimes Ghost" • Design size: 103 x 107 • Fabric used: Zweigart 32ct. "Creekstone" lugana
 When I heard this old nursery rhyme, I knew I HAD to design a sampler for it. Of course, I decided to change some of the words to make it my own. I don't think Old Grimes will mind, after all, he's dead! I don't usually embellish my samplers, but I just had to sew real buttons on his coat. The graph shows stitched buttons if you prefer to go that route. In case you're wondering, the 1/4" buttons I used were found at Joanne Fabrics. With all of the buttons in my button jar, I didn't have the right size or amount that was needed. Perhaps you will be luckier than I was! If not, go to Joanne's! I'm stitching a Christmas design right now, so be on the lookout for a sneak peek soon. Thanks for stopping by the creek and please come again!



Thanks so much for visiting me here at the Creek!
