Stitch Little Darlin' ......(228)

Thanks for all the kind comments/support about our grandchildren and Sierra Leone--it is much appreciated!

 Today's Stroll piece is Stitch Little Darlin', a class I took from Merry Cox in 2004. This was quite a challenge at the time; I don't recall doing any 3-D projects before then. I added my hubby and daughter's names at the bottom of the verse and the buttons on the bottom for protection. I remember getting this finished in class but being very unhappy the bottom fit. I was able to re-do at home and was more pleased with the results. Note the thimble holder and a needle page is under the flap.

I received a pre-stitch in the mail for a class I'm taking in October at the Salty Yarns Jamboree. This is for a Sue Hillis class; the other teachers are Milady's Needle and a gold work class from Deborah Merrick-Wilson. I've never done gold work, so that will be a new experience for me.....long and short, I had to start the pre-stitch and this is where I am so far.

Thanks for stopping by and your "twisted threads" of friendship!



  1. What an elegant "tray" you created, Stasi! Good for you on starting your pre-stitching for your October class.

  2. Your Merry Cox tray came out beautifully! The prestitching is interesting and I like that fabric - it will be fun to see what it turns into.

  3. Wow this is absolutely gorgeous Stasi! What a great job you did. RJ

  4. Stasi, Stitch Little Darlin' is such a beautiful piece. I've never seen one finished like that, but I adore it. Thank you for sharing! Andrea
