These are just a few of my favorite things....


In my garden of needlework are so many different pieces, each one which expresses many of my favorite things, and become the creations of my needle.  Each one is different, each one a unique expression of me, of the things that stir my heart, that draw me to stitch with eager anticipation, as I watch my needle paint each new design into another one of my favorite things.

This is a favorite banner called "Random Thoughts" by Drawn Thread.  Our youngest son, Nathan, purchased the materials and pattern for me for Christmas a few years ago.  I was so thrilled and amazed that my son knew my taste so well and went to my local needlework shop to make the purchases.  Needless to say, I sat down immediately after Christmas Day and began stitching it. 

This piece is called "Hearts and Flowers" by Carriage House Samplings.  My husband, Bruce selected this design for me as a gift, and  I stitched it for one of our wedding anniversaries.  I love the words, "When in love I do commence, may it be with a man of sense". 

    One of my favorite designs is this one, called "Summer Jubilee" by Blackbird Designs.  I especially love our beloved American flag, reminding us, that among the beauty of this world, our flag remains one of the most beautiful reminders of the freedom which we hold so dear in America.

Linens and laces, soft misty hues of color, interspersed with delicate rows of flowers.... Just Nan's "With My Needle, is a favorite piece, done in shades of light greens and delicate shades of pink.  "Roses & Pearls", a design by Indigo Rose, is stitched in soft mauves, pinks and pale greens on misty rose linens. 

If you haven't already guessed, I am very fond of tea and everything it expresses.....sitting down with a friend for a quiet cup of tea, some conversation and perhaps some stitching is absolutely one of my most favorite things to do!
