I can see why you love this design and have used it again and again.

I haven't stitched a whole design more than once other than duplicate gifts for both my sisters, however, if I like an element of a design I might incorporate it into another.

A very beautiful design! I don't usually use a design more than once- too many I want to do!

The variations you have embroidered of the same design show it to be versatile, and after you've stitched it, beautiful.

I love embroidering delicate flowers and chickens, and have some patterns I use and re -use.

I can see why you like it. The color changes make it look like a whole new design. Very pretty! I have cross-stitch patterns that I use over and over but the problem is I can't remember anymore who I gave what so am always afraid of duplicating myself when gift giving. :/ Hope you are having a great week.

A delightful pattern, Kathleen, and you make it new with each project. Oh, and I agree with Betty Lou, it is truly a classic design. I don't think embroidery ever loses its 'cool' - do you?

Hope your day is pleasant,
Marianne
