Stitching Finishes

My friend Marilyn is a prolific stitcher. She not only stitches 1)a lot and 2)quickly, she also 3)"finishes" finishes them, if you understand what I'm saying. If she stitches an ornament design, she finishes it into an ornament. If Marilyn stitches a needlebook, she assembles it into a needlebook. No stitching and then tossing the needlework into a drawer (like lots of people I know)! Saturday mornings are a treat for me because when Marilyn gets a chance to stop by the shop, she usually brings some of her finished needlework to show me. This is the Sturbridge Box which was offered as a "Stitcherama" (webinar) from The Victoria Sampler.
"Year of Flowers" and "B My Valentine" both by The Drawn Thread.
One last piece from Marilyn is one the name of which I can't remember! As soon as I find name and designer, I will edit this post to include that information. She mounted the stitchery into a boxtop and made the smalls which tuck inside the box. Now, after seeing these wonderful pieces, I am inspired to go stitch a bit on one of my own! Have a great week!

  1. Amazing with a capital A!!! Beautiful with a capital B!!! Such lovely work!~

  2. Did you ever find the name of the design and designer for the boxtop that your friend Marilyn stitched? It's lovely.

  3. The boxtop is by the Drawn Thread. It is called the Treasure Box. I have stitched it and love it!
