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!
Hugs,

Ack!! Jill these are AMAZING!!! I too LOVE that little blue bird (well actually, I love everything Paulette makes, so it's hard to chose a favorite), I think it's literally to die for! Better watch out, next time I come visit, birdie might jump on my shoulder and come live in Lodi :o)~

Hi Jill, Isn't Paulette the most talented lady. Her work is so so beautiful and perfectly stitched. What I love most is that her style is so recognizable. I am lucky to have two of her pieces as well that are much treasured. Thank you for sharing. That heart is stunning! Best wishes, Carol :) x
