My World of Needlework


I have all but finished Mail Jail from my February Hearts Sale and I am stitching.


For the next two months, I hope to stitch 2-3 hours a day.


I'm hoping people will join me: A Two-Month Long

Stitching Party!



Welcome to March's Stitching Party and Random Little  Lessons

  In the next two months, I will write Random Little Lessons on what occurs to me as I go along.

  This morning,  setting up the fourth lesson: What's Wrong with Elizabeth?


Lesson 4, Photo #1: What's Wrong with Elizabeth?

Time to Stitch

Poor Elizabeth looks blind because there is no white reflection in her eyes. Compare the two photos (above and below) and see if you think the little white reflection helps her see. It is such a small detail but it always helps a face. Of course, Elizabeth's eyes aren't very big; in an even bigger face, the white reflection becomes even more important.

Above is the map of how far Queendom Website has traveled,

nice for MacSoph and me, but doubly nice because it shows that needlework is indeed alive and well right round the world.

In many needlepoint faces, there isn't room in the eye for a whole stitch of white; if there isn't room, simply overstitch and small line and watch the eyes of your figure come to life.


As I said, it is such a small detail but it is so important!

I have transitioned from Mail Jail (although I still have to pack up some of the leftovers) and I am spending about 4 hours a day stitching.


If I'm able to keep it up (sometimes life interferes), I should accomplish a lot.


Right now I am working on these motifs and on a challenging design that goes with them.

Coming May 1 to Queendom Website:
