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

Acorn Biscornu, and Fall pinkeeps

I stitched 2 projects but decided to drag out some of the old Fall theme stitched pieces for finishing. Finally, the weather in the Texas area is cooling off a little. The ragweed should be gone in one week or so. All the pins that I am using in my pinkeeps this time were hand dyed by me. I just love experimenting the colors. The orange pins actually have some "white" in them but I don't think the pictures will show those little details.

Cricket Collection Acorn Biscornu. I stitched it in 18 counts linen fabric because of the size of the design. If I stitch this one over one, it will be too small on 28 counts fabric. 18 counts is the perfect size for this cute Biscornu and I was able to find a button to match.

Blackbird Design "Autumn Bouquet" and I only stitch part of the design and put it into a box.
The picture is not too clear when taken with the glass on. I bought the wood box at Hobby Lobby.

I still have a few more pieces to do the finishing and I will post the pictures next week. Thank you so much for the wonderful comments you all left on my blog. Special thank you for the bloggers that awarded me with "You make me smile award". .....Suzanne, Vonna, Lesley, and Lelia.
Have a great Halloween. I am taking my son out in the neighborhood tonight. He is going to be Bob the builder. This coming Saturday, there is a big Quilt show in the Houston area and I am going there with a new stitcher friend that I have never met. Silver needle will have a booth there as well. I am looking forward to this special event and this will be my first time going there. Anyone else is going?

Blog nightmare...

I was trying to format "Label" into the blog and I messed up a few format on the left hand side and the blog format on the top. I also lost the post that I did on October 13. So I am reposting that blog info.What a nightware, at least I did not delete the "whole blog." I am in the process of restoring everything I lost.

Fall stitching continues, all these finishes are stitching one over one. Enjoy.
