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

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!
