Meet & Greet

Thanks to the lovely Mdm Samm who organize and sponsor this event.
My mother taught me how to embroider and cross stitch when I was a little girl. I also learned how to knit, crochet, and lots of other things.


The first item in line, or hanging in the dead tree, is a bell pull that I cross stitched years ago, most likely in Junior High or sometime around there. It has got the traditional roses, and it is currently residing in my living room.


The detailed picture shows off the design in a better way. Wool embroidery floss was used in the cross stitching. I am sure I was pretty impressed with myself when I finished it!

My mother helped sewing the backing on and mounting the metal hangers. This is a treasure I will keep forever!


A few years back I was doing a lot of stitchery. This is a design made by a Norwegian designer, and I stitched it in variegated grey DMC floss. The stitchery will eventually be incorporated in a table runner.

Approximately one year ago I finally finished my 2012 Aurifil Designer of the year quilt.


I framed the stitcheries from the 12 different designers in scrappy blue and green and made a lovely wall hanging out of it.

 

More details of the quilt can be seen in this post: 2012 Aurifil Quilt.

The last project I will show is a cross stitch project designed by Little Miss Shabby, and it's called Quilty Stitches.


I think it lacks 2 rows of white floss on the bottom before it is 100% finished. This was a monthly stitch along last year. The designs are still available for free.

I think this approx. 8" x 8" piece is quite adorable! It is a very nice collection of temporary quilt blocks.When I finish the last couple of rows it will be framed and put up on my wall.
Happy Stitching!

  10. Anita- all your work with cross stitch and embroidery is finely detailed work. Very pretty, thank you for sharing. The little MIss Shabby instructions I've pulled off to stitch at some time, but am unsure when I'll ever get to it. It's amazing how many of us on this blog hop started our crafts with the needle before finishing high school.

  15. Your bell pull was quite an accomplishment and it is beautifully done. I made the Aurifil designer blocks also. Mine are pieced together but not quilted yet. You have inspired me to get it finished. It was nice to meet you and I will be back to visit again.
