A Finish


Buzz My Grapes Tabletopper and Bellpull
Dutch Treat Designs
c.2000 Designed by Claudia Dutcher


Lavender, 9 square cut, 18ct Anne Cloth stitched with DMC #5 coton perle colors: 3052 (4 skeins); 729; 801; 840 (2 skeins), 327, 553. The finished Tabletopper is 22" x 22". Each square in the TT has a stitch count of 45x45. I fixed a couple 'leaf' stitching errors & used the Nun stitch at the ends [DMC #12 coton perle color 3042]

Jane, Chapel Hill, NC: You had asked me about the Tea Cup Pulled Thread Sampler. It was not purchased via needlework shop or designer. Members of the local EGA chaper I belong to designed the sampler & taught participants at an Indiana State Day. It isn't a pattern that can be purchased.


Judy asked me about Evening by Susan Minot. Right now, I"m around page 60 - and this book has about 260 pages. I am enjoying the book. I wanted to read this book for a long time & then heard it was going to be a movie this Summer. I picked up a paperback & have it in my handbag for those ... "waiting" moments in the car. btw, Judy, I love "the bookshelf" you are stitching. It looks great pictured on your blog ... as does the LHN peaches!!!

Well ... I'm going to flip a coin and that will determine my stitching on the Bellpull [linen banding] from NeedleArts magazine --OR-- The Soweth Sampler BOAF. I enjoy both of them & would like to finish them SOON.

Hey, all of a sudden, it's done! When did you sneak that in?

I like Susan Minot. Took a dismal stroll through our library's meagre offering of English language books today and came away determined to squirrel some money away for a book-buying spree!
