My World of Needlework


I read a comment the other day about liking large projects the best, but there is something to be said for a project that is quick to finish.


With this in mind, I thought I might use the next days to build a gallery of hearts from my past.


Where did the first hearts go?

Click here and you will find a slideshow of them.

Periwinkle and Roses Heart

It is hard to believe that I stitched and sold Periwinkle and Pearls Heart six years ago. I would have guessed two or at most three years ago, but I found the file date and it was six years ago.


Periwinkle and Pearls heart has both Ribbon Roses and Bullion Roses in periwinkle and pink and a smattering of small pearls set in periwinkle cross-stitch cups.


On the left and right of the heart are diagonal bands of traditional needlepoint patterns and a few rows of Eyelets to make the heart look a bit lacy.

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.

For Anybody Collecting Eleanor Memorabilia

Even though a Fleur de Lis was not in wide use in Eleanor's time, in more modern times it has become associated with her and here is a pretty thimble with a raised Fleur de Lis design.


The thimble sold for $69.00; there were 26 bids, and as often happens all of the price increases were in the last few seconds.

An Eleanor Sort of Design

Here is a late 19th century German (Gabler) thimble but the design looks to me like it could have belonged to Eleanor. Does anybody agree?


The thimble sold for $56.00 with 26 bids.
