Hi friends! How's it going? Frigid here. Otherwise all is pretty well. I did the finishing on my tinies. You like that? I made that up. Ha! These are the little samplers and my favorites... yep, poodles! They are all stitched one over one on 45 ct white linen. I had to use half cross to make it all fit nicely. And I surprised myself. I did not need to use magnification to stitch these little darlings.
Antique Pattern Library. You need to scroll down to Markbok. It is found there. This is a Swedish pattern from 1915. Love, love, love it!!
Lavender Girl from The Snowflower Diaries to create me. I used Donna's pink, variegated floss for my dress. "I" am stitched one over two. Mabel and Henry are stitched from this freebie found here.
So why did I stitch up all these sweet tinies? Well, I have had these two 1960's poodle lipstick holders for a few years now. I knew I wanted to make tiny pincushions to insert in the holes. I have just never made time to do this. I needed a break from Theotokos, and got them done!
I am back to stitching Theotokos. I found a mistake. Added one extra stitch in the cream, scroll border. Unstitching took about half an hour total in time to correct the problem. sigh. Oh well.
I hope you have a fabulous day my friends. Thanks for stopping by!
Stitching and praying,
