I've stitched this design, "Across the Miles", over the Christmas holidays for a dear friend.  I am hoping she does not see this post, as I've yet to get the square  picture frame cut for it.  This design is based on one I'd designed in 1987, (left)  but thought I would gussy it up a bit for 2011.  

I love the Arts and Crafts style font, the little satin eyelet flowers and leaves, and all the curlicues including the entwined tendrils of chimney smoke.  It all says "we are friends and will always be in touch".  This is the perfect gift for a friend who lives a continent away, or just across town.
