Anita's Stitching

Little House Needle work Rose Sampler

This is my first and my favorite Little House needlework chart. I have stitched it once as a needleroll for a friend's birthday. This time I use the chart to stitch up a set of smalls. I have been experimenting different ribbon materials for the Ribbon Rose pins and I used 3 different kind in the mattress pin keep here. For the mattress pinkeep, where there are "dents", I put beads on the front and the back, the border is stitched one over one.

Have a great 4th of July and I will be stitching a few patriotic designs in this month.

Wow Anita, what a beautiful set of 'smalls' Your work truly is exceptional. I love the little fob with the roses at each corner. Did you make those out of ribbon and do you make your own cord? It's really lovely and a perfect match.

Your smalls are sooooo gorgeous, I love them! Your stitching is just beautiful. Now I should take this as inspiration to stitch my own. I can see my larger projects being abandoned as I become adicted to stitching smalls!

Anita!! All three pieces are gorgeous! I love the fob. The roses you've stitched in the corners are incredible. The mattress pin cushion is great. I like that you stitched roses on the sides too. And the pins you've made - they are so pretty.

Very pretty smalls! I love those little rose pins too. I keep meaning to look for some fancy ones, but never seem to get around to it. I think a trip to 'ebay' is what's needed right now, lol

I recently purchased the LHN Sampler Lady and after seeing yours will almost certainly stitch her over 1.
