In Memory of Iris

Even though my Etsy shop is currently in vacation mode, I've still been busy stitching away. Yesterday I finished a custom order for an absolutely lovely lady on Etsy named Gleeza.

The order was for 7 blue iris magnets. The magnets will be given to some of her family members in memory of her grandmother, Iris. Iris passed away several months ago after a long, full life. She would have been 90 this May 30th. Not only was her name Iris, but the blue iris was her favorite flower.

I'm extremely honored that Gleeza asked me to make these to help commemorate what would have been her grandmother's 90th birthday. I've included some pictures to share with you all. I'm still working out where & when to take pics at my new house, so unfortunately the pics may not be the greatest.

Here's to Iris!!!


  1. How sweet! The iris cross stitch is so pretty!!

  2. Absolutely beautiful Stitchin! You are so gifted at what you do - truly! :D

  3. I absolutely adore my Iris magnets and can't wait to share them out. I am certain your handiwork will become family heirlooms. My grandmother would have loved them too. Thank you for all your hard work and time invested.
