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 anita@anitalittlestitches.com.

Sweetheart Tree christmas small set

Sweetheart tree is one of my favorite designers. When I first learned how to stitch, I bought a lot of her designs. It takes lot of patience and time to stitch all the backstitching and quarter stitches.

The Biscornu, I added the jingle bells and stars. The chart is a perfect size for Biscornu












Pinkeep, I still need to add a ribbon row on top, I used the ric rac ribbon:





The scissor fob, the red had so many changes in colors that I had a hard time following the chart, then the backstitching, I almost tossed this one into the trash:



As you can tell, I am not into christmas ornament stitching at all. I am working on my second strawberry emery next and then on to some pinkeeps. Hm, there are more christmas biscornu coming up too. Have a great week and thank you so much for visiting my blog.

I'm glad you stuck with the scissors fob Anita - the whole set looks really great - I love Sweetheart Tree too, but you're right the backstitching and quarter stitching is quite finicky!

Anita these are gorgeous! I always love how you embellish your items with beads. It is such a nice touch, and now the bells! They are beautiful on your biscournu. The stitching must have been very time consuming, and you did a beautiful job as always! I love looking at your stitching!

Inspired by you I have just finished my first biscornu and was surprised that it was easier than I had thought.
