pattern // where you belong
Where do you feel a sense of belonging? For me, it's when I'm with family. Do they make me crazy sometimes? Of course. Are there times of tension? Definitely. But they love and accept me no matter what (mostly...haha!).
My friend Vicki asked if I would draw up a pattern for her to stitch for an anniversary gift. She gave me this text: It doesn't matter where you came from, but where you belong. Right next to me.
So sweet. I love the idea of two people belonging next to each other, with each other, and to each other. Maybe someday I'll find that too. Anyway, because the embroidery was to be a gift for her husband, Vicki wanted the pattern to not look too girly. No flowers!
I went with a simple text style, and added a scattering of double rice stitch. You could add more of that too. On the PDF pattern, that last line is outlined, but the idea is that it would be filled in as you see above.
Stitch it for a friend, spouse, or whoever needs to know that they can find belonging when they are with you.
And thanks to Vicki for requesting this pattern and letting me share it!
