Show and Tell Monday

I caught a flu bug recently, and was down ill for a few days...I am still recovering, so I haven't had much Miniatures updates lately.

So for today, I decided to do something different. Besides making miniatures, I also love cross stitching. I started cross stitching since I was 10 years old. Recently, I have worked on my work in progress very regularly again.

This is a piece by Sandy Littlejohns. It is named "Victorian Christmas Eve". This chart is actually a 3 part horizontal chart. I have just completed 1 out of the 3 part series, and am now working on Part 2. I can't wait to see how it turns out.

I may attempt to do another marvelous chart of hers after I complete this.

    I am so sorry that you have not felt well. Hopefully, soon you will feel yourself and be able to get back to your miniatures.

    The needle work project you are working on is absolutely beautiful. You are an amazing talent.

    Thanks so much for sharing your passions with us.


  2. Hi Pei,

    That's too bad.Are you OK now?

    Your work is so beautiful!
    How about making cross-stitching with a miniature?
    I think that you can do it;)


  3. Pei Li,
    I hope you are feeling better by now and that you will have a wonderful trip this weekend.

    Your crosstitch work is gorgeous! I have a book that you need to see. It is "Miniature Embroidery for the Victorian Dolls' House" by Pamela Warner. 1998 I hope you can find it.

    Pink hugs, Karen

  10. PeiLi, the cross stitch is lovely. I know how much work goes into that, I used to do it when my eyes were a little more reliable! You do such nice work, no matter what you tackle. Glad you're feeling better-
