What Are You Stitching?

1st September 2023

We love seeing the recreations of designs featured in our publications make it into the homes of stitchers all around the world. Here are a few recent ones for you to enjoy…

Jeanne Wolff

‘When I got Inspirations issue #119 in the mail, I was so excited to see The Blue Bead by Tatiana Popova.’

‘It was a wonderful design and a challenging project. I finished it except for the twisted cord on the blue leaf at the bottom. Tatiana is a terrific and talented designer!’

Jeanne, you’ve done a beautiful job of recreating one of our most popular projects from the latest issue of Inspirations. And you’re right, Tatiana is terrific! It’s been our privilege to share both her design and her story with the Inspirations community.

Linda Jackson

‘What fun I had constructing the beautiful Balthazar from Inspirations issue #116.’

‘My childhood Christmases were always enhanced by this wonderful beetle but unfortunately these days it is seldom seen or is missing its wonderful colour. I now have mine to remind me of those years passed.’

Your Balthazar beetle is fantastic, Linda. It is wonderful that your newly stitched creation brings with it memories of past holidays. We’re sure Balthazar will make regular appearances at your festivities for many years to come.  

Janet Wooler

‘Here is my Deerfield from the book The Design Collective | Pincushions. I finished it, beaded edging and all. It was possibly the most difficult thing that I have stitched so far so I am rather proud of it, and I dare anyone to ever stick a pin in it!’

‘I bought a set of linen samples from Mary Corbet, so I used one of them for the front piece. I had all of the DMC flosses and pearl cotton, I only had to buy some beads. I did really enjoy it. I am considering one of the projects from A Passion for Needlework 2 | Factoria VII as an upcoming project.’

A triumphant pincushion for sure, Janet. With pristine stitching and a shimmering beaded edge, you should indeed be proud of it. And by the sounds of it, kept far away from any pins!
