Just a quick post to show off some of the stitched gifts I've received over the last few week.
I just love little things and all of these are so tiny.
First up is a pinkeep from Brigitte in Germany. Brigitte stitched a Prairie Schooler design with the letter M. Isn't it lovely?
I was blown away when I received this tiny little pinbox from Francoise (no blog)
Francoise has stitched Blackbird Designs Buttons and Blooms over one and fitted it into the lid of a box of pearl head pins. Everything about this is so dainty. I love it.
Finally, Sandra in UK stitched this gorgeous strawberry scissor fob for me. Click on the picture for a close up of the stitching and finishing. It's so beautifully done.
Sandra doesn't have a blog but she if you want to see some gorgeous stitching and finishing you can visit her Picasa albums.
I've just remembered a few things I stitched as Christmas gifts but forgot to show here. Some of you may already have seen them on Nancy's blog but for anyone that hasn't seen them here's a pinkeep I made using a chart from a German booklet I have called Kreuzstichmuster. This is the front of the pinkeep
and here's the back view. The initial comes from the same pattern book
This is a set of needlework smalls that I stitched using a chart from Theron Traditions - Stray Pins and Moms Scissors. I was getting a little tired of the design after stitching it three times (once over one for the fob) and the border yet a fourth time for the back of the needlebook!
Here's a view of the back of the pinkeep etc.
and a view of the inside
I have a few more finishes to show but will save those for next time.
Thanks so much for visiting me today :)
