This is for my friend, Shannon. It's done with 2 threads over 18-count Aida, and put in a cute frame I picked up at Iron Kettle Needlework Shop in Cody, Wyoming. I changed several of the colors - the original design was very pale and muted and I wanted a green to go with the frame. While I was at it, I brightened up some of the blues. The biggest change, however, was a spelling correction. The phrase around the outside of the quilts said, "Friendship is sharing openly, laughing often, speakly kindly, caring deeply, trusting always." Speakly? I double-checked the model on the front of the pamphlet. It said "speakly" too. Well, being an English teacher, I had to fix it. It now says "speaking." Funny how that got by the designer, the model stitcher, and the publisher.
Have you ever found other patterns with spelling errors that bug you?
