Anita's Stitching

I have begun stitching in 1978. For the last 10 years, my stitching has been with "smalls". I love to use beads and ribbons and always looking for new ways for finishing. My email addresses is

Chatelaine's Freebie Martina's roses

This will be my last finish for March. March was not a productive stitching month for me, so many things have happened between being sick, going to the drs offices, not having enough of sleep and so on. This is my second freebie for the month. I finished it as a biscornu. I have never shown the bottom of my biscornu and here it is. If I don't use any button on the top of my biscornu, I generally will put a button or beads at the bottom. It is a very cute freebie and I just love roses. I just went to Hancock fabric and picked up a few buttons, they are on sale at 50%.

Cathy, the blue flower is called Blue bonnets in Texas and it is also called Lupines.

I don't know what you're talking about. Maybe you did not stitch a lot but it certainly was productive when you turn out something so pretty as this. This is a gorgeous design. Your button really compliments it beautifully, too.

That is simply stunning :)
I've got a couple of her freebies printed out to stitch and make into biscorni. Your button is perfect with the design!
Great job!

Wow - so beautiful! Funny enough, I just started stitching all of Martina's freebies (three of them in that style) into biscornus as well... but cannot show them until they arrive with their recipients! Great minds think alike!!

That is so pretty. I have a lot of probs printing out Martinas designs and when I do manage to print them they dont come out very clearly at all. I love your button.

Martina's Freebie is absolutely gorgeous. Are these the original colors in the design? If so, they sure are pretty. I too love roses, so tis one is definitely on my list of future projects to stitch. Boy if I don't get started on these soon, I am going to have a very long list of pieces to stitch. You keep providing me with more ideas now that you are stitching all these smalls. I really do love working on them. YOu've done a great job both stitching and finishing them... I loved the backstitching on the back too, very simple but very effective.
