Some of you may remember this article in the MS Kids Holiday 2003 issue, about getting outside to enjoy a winter's day. I remembered it particularly because of the clever title all laid out on a snowy background, with twigs and bits of nature spelling out "A Winter Walk". I went back to this again recently to study it more closely. I really love embroidering letters. Maybe this comes from working as a graphic artist for a few years, but whatever the reason, I wanted to see if I could do something with needle and thread to convey the same natural qualities. I went outside, and chose colors from our own winter landscape, came back in, and stitched this up rather quickly. Then later, I made a sleeve out of it to cover an old pillow I already had. (I love pillow sleeves--so simple to make and they can be easily removed and stored flat when the season ends.) I like it!
