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.

Floss Ring Tags continue.....

This will be my last week of Floss Ring Tags, I may work on a few here and there in 2009. I need to go back on my designing for a new Romantic Collection that will come out in January 2009.I got a new digital camera for christmas but it is so different than the old one that I need to spend some time learning how to use it. I need a camera that has the "macro" function for close up pictures.

I did not stitch all these tags, some of them are from stitched pieces that I have done years ago, but I did stitch a few of them. I did the eyelets using the crop-a-dile tool and used trims. The floss tag finishing are easy and they are great for gifts and exchanges. I did a detailed step by step tutorial yesterday and here it is:


I do carry most of the supplies on my web site:


I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas holiday and Happy new year.


Initials from a booklet by Gloria and Pat. I love this Threadworx 10372 Kaleb's Cherry Patch. This is my all time favorite color by Threadworx. Stitching is done one over one thread.







From a french designer C Leory, DMC 814:








This is for me to keep, JBW design, stitching one over one using Carrie's Thread "Holly day"

Oh my gostags are just stunning. i love them. The initials from the Gloria and pat book are especially gorgeous. Can i ask if you make your holes using a crop a dile. I am trying to get one on ebay -unsuccessfully!!
Also, can I ask you about the the Threadworxx thread Kalab's Cherry Patch - can you tell me the colour toned in with the cherry, please? I am trying to find a colour to stitch the Beatrix Potter Quaker in and I really like this colour.
A happy New Year to you and your family. I hope it's a really great one for you and your business :>)
Hugs, Angela
