A Sweet Stitch Part 1 ......(237)

Today's Stroll piece is A Sweet Stitch by Sure Hillis, stitched in 2011. This was originally a class piece but released to everyone at some point..that's when I snagged it. Whitman had come out with these tins one Easter in pink, yellow and green. I bought a couple and was looking for just the right design...this was it!!! I sure wish Whitman would come out with these again, or at least some tins that reflect their "sampler" heritage. I'll be sharing the box today and the accompanying smalls tomorrow.

The bottom is lined with green felted wool and the stitch part forms a "pocket" to slide your scissors in. 

Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by and your "twisted threads" of friendship!



  1. Oh! This is so me! Too bad I missed out on this, it is wonderful Stasi.

  2. Stasi, this is soo sweet!! We had a family tradition of every New Years Eve each of us 5 siblings would memorize a poem and then recite it and Mom would give us each a tiny box of Whitman's Chocolates as a reward...that little box was such a special treat....

  3. I have a couple of the tins, Stasi, and have yet to do anything with them. Really like this design. Nice job finishing and very cute.
