~Designer Spotlight~ Teresa of Crocettandofralepesti~

Greetings friends and stitchers~


Periodically, I research to look for new or upcoming designers... I have my tried and true favorites, however, I like to look around and see what else might be out there.... Recently I found Teresa of Crocettando fra le pesti by way of her lovely blog.... Which led me to her Etsy... Where I found her nice charts you could receive PDF..... Two of them spoke to me particularly because they looked like something I could use in my February decorating....

First off, Love is in the Air~~~ I love the cooing birds and nice color palette Teresa used.... Soft shades with a hint of red...

Red ticking homespun & blue ticking homespun set off the extra distressing I
did finishing this into a needlebook...

Inside I attached a wool heart to save some of my favorite pins....

And, what would a needlebook be without a couple pockets for needles, scissors and the like......

Here us a closer photo of how I like to sew strips of linen to a stitched item... Layers... That's what I think makes things special.....

The other PDF design I stitched is actually part of her nursery rhyme collection.... But, you know me... I thought it versatile enough to be used this way...... Atop a distressed box~

~Ring of Roses~ Isn't it just dainty??

Here is a better photo of the creme distressed box... I painted and distressed MANY boxes back in the summer.... Experimenting with this lighter paint, I was glad to have it on hand!

I loved stitching and finishing these goodies by Teresa this past week....

As snow continues to lay on the ground here in the Carolinas, I've enjoyed the extra stitching time~

Until next time....


Busy hands & warm hearts,

Faye

Faye I don't know how you could get anything else done with all your finishes! You must stitch so fast, but your work NEVER looks hurried. Your pieces are beautiful as expected. I love them both for their special touches you've achieved but that light colored distressed box is something I will have to do. Thank you for the designer info, anxious to check out her patterns.
