Casa Mia in Down Under

Today Jess received the little pocket that I stitched for her, featuring a Casa Mia freebie. One of her favourite designers. Jess is solely responsible for introducing me to designs from Casa Mia. And when her boutique (Casa Mia) opened briefly a couple months ago, we oohed and ahhed together :)

Jess is more a beader than a stitcher. Her WIPs are beaded Peranakan shoes, a meticulous process of beading charlotte beads onto canvas. Think goldfish swimming in a pond of turquoise, think dragons in fiery orange and red, think peonies in pink and fushia. If she had a blog, I'd link you to her in a wink...

Stitched on Cashel with DMC 115

Comment Notes: To all that have left a comment about my Long Dong Sampler SAL and my sis's stitching, I thank you for your time. To all that have not, thank you for visiting. I am inspired to step it up on the Long Dog 18th century Sampler. Yeap the colours ARE bright, something not normally done for such old samplers, I gather.

  3. This is such a sweet design, and perfect as a gift for a stitching friend. I've stitched it several times. Though I've never finished it in such a stunning way!
