Rosella's Little Stitched Book

By now, you probably know how very much I like to receive photos from stitchers. I like it even more when I receive a photo of the stitcher with her needlework.  This way I can put a face with a name.

Here is Rosella with her adaptation of Petit Carnet d'Ouvrages, Livre I.  Rosella lives in Milan, Italy.  

Rosella stitched her book on 28-count linen using DMC 798.  She changed the design of two of the stitched pages from the charts I provided in the package.

Instead of assembling her book as I did with my model, Rosella mounted her stitched linen pieces on a small photo album.  Below are a few photos showing the linen pieces mounted on the album.

Next is the back of Rosella's book and one of the pages.  She decided to put my initials on the back cover.  (That was so sweet, Rosella!)  The lovely verse is one that she had stitched previously on a Janie Hubble (The Cat's Whiskers) project.  

The peacock design in the following photo was created by my friend Giulia Manfredini (Giulia Punti Antichi).

Thank you very much, Rosella for sharing photos of your beautiful work and also your technique for assembling the book.  I'm delighted with your work.
