Once upon a time a girl went on vacation to visit her surrogate mom and stitching buddy in the great state of Virginia. To prepare, she packed several stitching projects. One of which was a recently released freebie: Three Little Words by Lizzie Kate. While on that vacation, she stitched to her heart's content making those x's with Carrie's Creations and DMC floss on the 28ct white evenweave fabric. Soon she was happy dancing in celebration of finishing the Lizzie Kate project.
Soon the girl returned home and Three Little Words languished all by its lonesome for two months. During those two months, the girl found a frame her father had made for her in the mid-1980's. See, her father passed away a year earlier and as she was going through his things, she found it.
As a teenager, she loved animals and had a poster book of them. Her father made a frame for one of the posters. When the girl left home many years later, she left behind the framed poster. Her father kept it in a spare "junk" room.
As it turned out, the frame was perfect! Repurposing the glass from an old, broken, discarded frame, she cut a piece to fit the frame her father made so many years ago. The girl soon had Three Little Words framed and ready to hang.
Three Little Words was hung on the wall of the girl's castle where it lived happily ever after.
