Custom Puppy by Jane Gathercole

Jane stitched this beautiful puppy as a gift for her family. What an amazing talent to share.

I didn’t know Jane was nervous about this piece at all. She seems confident in what we had done, but here is what she says about stitching this piece.

Good morning Jennifer from the UK I hope you are keeping well and safe.

I just had to attach the sewn picture from my first pattern done by you. Absolutely thrilled by it. Let me remind you – you added about an inch to the original photo because his left ear was half cut off the photo. You used your expertise on the computer and not only added some left ear but also blended in the background. It is just fabulous. I took a leap of faith in sewing your pattern because it was the first time I had experienced a computerized alteration and knew that the picture would involve about 400 hours of my work. I hope you can access the attachment to see the completed work which has now gone to the framer. The finished article will now be given as a Christmas present to the owner of this lovely dog.

I cannot give presents of great financial value but give them from my hours of work plus love so when I have a suitable photo that I want to stitch, I will, without doubt, only use your patterns.

Once again, many thanks for your efforts which did involve several emails and discussions. Will contact you soon.

Stay safe and well, best wishes Jane Gathercole

I remember making the chart though. I don’t do enough to completely forget them at this point. I learn something new with quite a few of them as well. I’m improving all the time. It’s a great pleasure to have involvement at all in some of these pieces that come out amazing. Knowing and watching these pieces come to life is what it’s about.

Well, here is the puppy…isn’t he amazing and Jane just as amazing.
