What could be better than tea and stitches! A pretty stitcher stitches beside the ocean, a lighthouse in the distance. Ahhh...
Sitchers Box Top, Scissors Fobs, Scissors Case, and Needlebook.. wonderful learning pieces for your stitching pleasure. Lots of easy directions and photos!
In Thea's words:
This sampler can be finished as a needlework box top, but can also be framed and hung on a wall, or turned into a pillow top! There are 14 separate whitework areas surrounding the center Cross Stitched area, each are easy to learn for an intermediate Hardanger student. The four corners consist of four different needlewoven centers, and each one of them will give you a wonderful introduction to the more challenging types of stitches in Hardanger. The other ‘squares’ contain various forms of simple pulled thread work or drawn thread work, and makes this box top particularly interesting to display when you’ve finished! In the center is a stitcher waiting for a friend to have tea and perhaps stitch in the garden with her. A typical Victorian mansion is shown at right, and a lamp post with hanging baskets and a blooming cherry tree typify a Victorian spring beside the garden walkway. I’ve also designed three stitching accesories, all taken from parts of the box top, and these were beautifully stitched by one of our VS Stitchers, Linda Nelson. Our Lisa has done a wonderful job with the finishing, and has not only inserted this design inside the box top, but also finished all the stitching accessories as well. All in all, this is such a lovely stitching box, you might find room for a few of your other stitching treasures! - Thea
