The bookshelf

Stitching the bookshelf from the Little House Needleworks brings back some memories of my school time. Reading Wuthering Heights, the secret garden and sense and sensibility. I saw Little Women on television last Sunday by accident. For this piece I use Cashel linen, light mocha and DMC fibers. The golden thread is from Vaupel and Heilenbeck. It's recommended to use DMC metallic but I know that it's easier using V&P with a bigger needle.

  4. For all the mothers with unmarried daughters. Look at 2007. There is a ring pillow. My mother (Conny) asked me if I liked a ring pillow. I said yes, but had know idea what to expect! I became a beautiful pillow with a nice story. The rings fell from the pillow two times during the wedding. First time: at my mothers home and the seceond time during the ceremony. Daughter Marije.
