Catching Up

I've been doing some more little stitched panels of late, just for the heck of it. 😊

This first one began with that triangle of pink silk on which I placed the key at the very end.

I stitched what would have been seam lines except all the fabric was left raw edge. Then I sprinkled it with French knots, a few star sequins, and some bead chips. 

This one was very simply treated with running stitches... until I felt compelled to stitch over some of the flourish applique. 

The stitching is very subtle on this one but it's there, trust me. 

And this one is reminiscent of a square I made for the Great Big Little Stitchery Swap Round 2. There's seed stitching amongst the little floral bouquets. I tried to emphasize the tiny flowers under the hedgehog with some straight stitches and Colonial knots. All of these panels are in the neighborhood of 3" x5." Well, the one at the top is probably just under 4" square. They've all been sent to the Disabled Artists Foundation for fundraising purposes.

I decided to keep this one for myself. 😁 It's about 3" x 4." Just seed stitching and one column of chain stitches, then an outline stitch to highlight a line that was already in the music print. I'm not sure what I will do with it but I sense there's a fabric book in my future and it could be a cute pocket!



  1. Lovely All! Would you tell me what material you usually use as a base to start a project like this? I'd love to try my hand at some stitching like this.. Thanks a bunch! Hugs! deb

  2. I like the one you're keeping best!
