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.


Was it last year that I sold this pair of hearts? A Tuxedo and a Wedding Dress.


They are the second Tuxedo and Wedding Dress Hearts I have made. Earlier I stitched a pair that I sold for years and years, but too many of the threads were pit pf date with no alternative and I ran out of the beads for the older Wedding Dress.


People kept asking me for them and I kept saying I would make new ones, and finally last year I finally did.


In my time I have made a large drawer full of hearts, one after another. I love the shape and it is as the person said, it is nice to make something that doesn't take forever.


Watch here and gradually I will build a retrospective of my dalliance with hearts.

For a couple of thimbles  reminscent of Eleanor, for sale next Monday on eBay, scroll down.

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.


Right now the auction price is $19.50

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?


Right now the auction price is $12.00.
