Favorite Stitches

Robin's Stitchin'

This is my Favorite Stitches page and these are a few of my favorite stitched pieces.

This is my first Needlebook and I LOVE it.  I am so proud of my accomplishment.  This was a monthly challange on Janyne's Attic board, the pattern is Alphabet Sampler by My Big Toe Designs and it's stitched on 32 count Flax linen with Carrie's Creation floss.
I made a little inside pocket to hold my needlecase and two "pages" for extra needles.

Guardian Angel

AFter 2 1/2 years I finished Guardian Angel and had her framed.  This is my current prized finished piece.

A Castle By The Sea.  Pattern by Dragon Dreams stitched on 28 count Ocean Reflections hand dyed fabric from Silkweavers with DMC floss and Kreinik braid.  I added a tiny Mill Hill Treasures sail boat at the edge of the sun and water at the top but it doesn't show up very well. 
This one is my favorite so far this year.

This is my Brenda Name*Flake.  The pattern is by Vee&Co (http://www.veeandco.com/8869.html) and it's stitched on 28 count Ice Blue metallic hand dyed fabric by Sugar Maple Fabrics.  The floss is DMC Variations floss with Mill Hill Beads.  The tuck banner is by a friend.

This is my Meagon Name*Flake.  It's also by Vee&Co and is stitched on the same fabric as the Brenda flake.  I loved stitching these two patterns.

This a Name tree that I made for my Grandson for Christmas.  If you turn your head sideways to the left, you can see his name.  I stitched it on 32 count Precious Metals Opalescent fabric with 1 strand of Needle Necessities Calypso thread over 1 fabric thread.

Spring Awakens by Stitchopolis.  It's stitched on 28 count hand dyed fabric called Spring Awakens by Sassy's fabrics with Weeks floss.  The fabric is a lot more sparkly and vibrant than in this picture.
