Fall colors and specialty stitches

Cutwork borders and shiny beads

Beautiful shading

It took me a year to finally sit down and stitch this and I’m not disappointed. But I’ve delayed the finishing because I want to do it justice and am just not sure what to do -frame it or hemstitch the borders. Maybe I’ll stitch the Miniature Winter Sampler and then decide. Hmmmmm, I’m thinkin’ . . .


  1. What a gorgeous piece. You did such a great job, especially with the fancy stitches. TW's designs are so detailed and interesting. It's a shame she's given up designing for counted thread.

  2. Too gorgeous; love the leaves at the corners!

  3. What a beautiful piece. You did a great job and I'm sure you'll enjoy it for years.

  4. Beautiful work. I think yours is the first one I've seen of this
