How to Cross Stitch Brianna’s Version of Lizzie Kate’s Be Silly Snippet Design

Brianna Lentz Cross Stitch Lizzie Kate Be Silly Version

When I first saw Lizzie Kate’s Be Silly Snippet #S117, I knew I wanted a version of it in my daughter’s room as a daily reminder for them.  On my 6 year old’s first day of school in August, I reminded her to “Have Courage and Be Kind” to the other kids at school.  This is something she is very good at.

When I presented this finished piece to her, she was thrilled and said, “Oh Mommy, I love this. I am silly, honest and kind.”  She really is.  She is a beautiful soul.

I wanted to keep the stitching minimal to just the phrase for impact and knew the browns would not coordinate in her white and gray room.  So, I changed the colors and finished the piece on a sticky board from Yarnology and then stuck it in a frame she already had in her room.  She loves it and I love it too.
