Preppy gator

In quiet moments this past week, Macy stitched this "preppy gator" from The Princess and Me.  She did alternating Scotch stitch for the white and pink squares; Rhodes heart for the hearts; and Byzantine for the alligator's body.  The fiber was silk lame braid.  The finished piece would look great appliqued to a tote bag.  Needle Nicely is going to have it inserted into a pillow.
 I just love this Florida canvas designed by Raymond Crawford.  There are so many stitch possibilities--and there is space to put Vero Beach under the NASA symbol and on top of the sailboat.
 Zecca designed this beauty.  When I look at canvases like this and the Florida above, I see pattern-stitch possibilities, but the designs would be equally gorgeous done in the tent stitch.
 Live well, laugh often, love much--a great motto illustrated by 5 hearts designed by Jennifer Tan of Pippin Studio.
