Sweet Stitches...

For quite a while I've admired the stunningly beautiful stitched creations of Paulette of the lovely blog, "Beedeebabee". Her designs are sweet, and her stitching is simply amazing. The first time I held one of her creations (that belonged to a friend of mine) my heart skipped a beat. I was awestruck. Each creation is so small and so perfect. I told myself then and there that someday, when just the right item "spoke to me", I would place an order. Well, that day came. Ready for some show n' tell, friends?
Goodness, this little pillow is so beautiful I can hardly believe it. Each little thread is stitched with such care. I love the beading around the edges, and the rosette... sigh...
This sweet little heart pin measures only two and a half inches across. I love every little detail of this piece, especially the scalloped stitches.
This photo is pretty darn good (if I do say so myself~ hee hee) but it doesn't do it justice. Every stitch is so delicate.
I've always loved Paulette's heart creations, but this sweet little bluebird is what especially "spoke to me"~ Is it not the sweetest thing you've ever seen?? I have a little "thing" for bluebirds. They make me happy.
I love each little flower, and the string of hearts is such a sweet detail. Paulette is incredibly in tune with details. Thank you so much for creating these little lovelies, Paulette. You are truly just as sweet as your creations!
