Welcome to my blog!

Welcome to my blog!

My name is Dione, and I own The Stitcher's Muse Needleart.

I've blogged before, but not very regularly, and on a different platform. Today I decided to start a new project as I am travelling next week and wanted something fun and beautiful to work on while I wait in airports and on airplanes.

Handpicked - Gifts from the Sea pattern cover

A few weeks ago I purchased the pattern Gifts from the Sea, designed by Elisabetta Sforza and published by Inspirations Magazine. I've been a fan of both for quite a while. When I saw Gifts from the Sea, I fell in love. I thought I would blog my journey and give reviews on products, hints, and tips, and show everyone my progress.

I started with a lovely fine linen which we import from Weberei Weddingen in Germany. I printed out the design using DMC Magic Paper on my inkjet printer. I added a wonderful, extra-thick hoop from Hardwicke Manor and wrapped the hoop with 1" wide twill tape (we have all of these available in the shop, though they may not appear online - if the text is hyperlinked we have the item on our website. I'll add as much as I can over the next few weeks).

Join me in my journey to the beach with Elisabetta and my collection of supplies!

Hi Becky! Any of my blog entries can be found by clicking on Dione’s Muse-ings in the menu bar at the top of the page. There aren’t very many entries yet, but I’m working on it!


Looking for the rest of your blog. Where might I find it? Thank you.

Meacham Becky

Look forward to following your blog and your work on Gifts from the Sea Dione
