More Smalls Are Stitched

These are the latest smalls that I have completed the stitching on…

be ewe kind completeBe Ewe Kind Pin Cushion Kit by Chessie & Me @ 2000

Super piece stitched on 32 count Sheep Straw linen from R & R Reproductions (not really evenweave at 30 by 32).  The floss is Weeks Dye Works — as much as I like the color runs, I do find that this floss tends to knot so it does take a bit of extra care while stitching so not always my choice.  There is a nice stitch variety in such a small piece — cross stitch over two, cross stitch over one, satin, smyrna, lazy daisy and coils.

This kit came with a pincushion base from Remember Me and hope to have the stitching mounted soon.

This little piece was stitch on 32 count mocha linen (a true evenweave) using one strand of floss.  For the first time ever I used the magic loop method of stitching to be sure that the stitches did not slip to the back — it really works!!  If you are not familiar with this method check out the great tutorial at Funk & Weber Designs.

A tiny treasure that was a super fast stitch on 32 count mocha linen stitched two over two.  The rose is created with a smooth spider web stitch using over-dyed silk.

This is not my usual style but I am delighted with the finish.  This is stitched on 40 count sandstone linen (true evenweave) using floss one over two.

Another quick to stitch piece!  This is done on 40 count Sandstone linen, one over two.  The background was designed as single cross stitch over one with black.  I did not like the shadow that was visible from the floss jumping from stitch to  stitch so I used petite seed beads and thread that matched the linen.

This is almost the end of the EEF smalls  — there is at least one more very small piece that needs to get stitched.
