I made some lists for my Cabinet of Curiosities. That will help me decide what I want to put on my casket besides the poem.
Fruits and Flowers I like: most any flowers but especially tulips, strawberries
Motifs I like ; ship, crowns, hearts, delft tiles
Animals I like : bird, bee, bunny, butterfly, dragonfly
I want my casket to be more of a modern design and I don't really like people motifs.
We get more motifs next month. I want to print out the ones we got and try to put ones that I like on the cabinet template shapes and just see what they look like. I want to do everything in cross stitch so I want to take some charted designs I like and free designs and print them out and arrange them also. I have a Dover book of designs somewhere. If I can find it, that may give me some ideas too. I think it is called a "Mash-Up" when you take parts of a bunch of things and make a new design. This is exciting!
