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

Patriotic stitching part 1

Life has been quite busy these days. I have a few patriotic stitching done but as far as finishing, I have only completed 2 pieces.

Shepherd's Bush "Glory Fob", I like fobs to be in certain sizes, some of the SB fob are too big, I did not use the ric rac ribbon that comes with the kit, I just like the cording better. I just love this design.

I made an patriotic biscornu using Sweetheart tree Teenie Tweenie "americana hearts" chart. I love her designs and it is such a cute biscornu. The backstitching of the top and bottom pieces are different because I wanted the red and blue together instead of just one dominant color. Can't you tell I just love "beads", I put in gold, cream, red beads all over the designs.

I have also 2 patriotic pinkeeps coming up, probably a patriotic strawberry emery(I have to figure out the finishing part) and 2 patriotic mattresss pinkeeps. That is the plan but I don't know if I am going to run out of time.

Thank you so much for your comments on the LHN rose sampler small. I see a lot of new visitors and bloggers as well. Thank you so much for visiting.

Love your Patriotic stitching. You do wonderful stitching and finishing. I would not have the patience to sew up something that small.
