   Little Bits of Wisdom

This collection of little designs highlights a variety of quotes, proverbs, clichés, etc. which have caught my fancy for one reason or another. I try to use colors and motifs that typically symbolize the theme of the design; for example swans and pink roses are often used to note "grace." Not a 'series' that will be regular in any way, but rather this collection will grow as I discover bits of wisdom which inspire me to add new pieces.

All are designed to fit into teeny 2" x 2" frames from Olde Colonial Designs (stitch counts range from 71 to 76 stitches square) but are also wonderful in other framing or a little needle book or other bits of stitching goodness! See below for thread lists on each design.

I would recommend Better to Give, Love True or Second Spring for a beginner; none are more than an intermediate level.
