Stitches Used:

  • Full cross stitches
  • Backstitch (for optional lettering only)


The backstitch in this piece reads "I hold you in my arms for but a moment, yet in my heart for a lifetime."


Colours Used:

  • 59 DMC colours


* Although the design area itself on this pattern could be considered "full coverage" in nature, this is not a full coverage piece as the surrounding background area is not stitched & is blank fabric space. (It would look lovely stitched onto one of our fancy aidas in pastel hues) This is a detailed design & does have confetti but it is worth if for the lovely detailed finish.
