Miss Trenner's Needlework Academy

Over the past couple of months I've been delighted to see a couple of stitched Miss Trenner's Needlework Academy, but Dee L.'s is the first one I've seen assembled. As you can imagine, I was particularly excited to receive her photos.

If you are a regular reader of my blog, you have become well aware of Dee's beautiful stitching and assembly.  Her Miss Trenner's Needlework Academy is no exception!

The first photo shows the inside of Dee's large box as well as her needleroll and scissors weight.

Next is the inside of her smaller box.  You can see the stitched designs in the box bottom and the lid.  You can also see Dee's needleroll opened up so you can see her embroidery.

Now here are all of Dee's pieces in a single photo.  Wonderful, Dee!!

Dee told me how much she enjoyed stitching this project with its variety of stitches.  I think she also got a kick out of the fact that she knows the real Miss Trenner for whom I named the project.  They both live in Canton, Ohio.

Thank you so much, Dee, for sharing another of your fantastic needlework projects!!  I'm now busily working on my new teaching project that will premier in Canton next May. I know I'll see you there.

It was reassuring to read that some of you too have been plaqued by those pesky stitching frogs.  What a pain they can be!  Lori wrote me that she has tree frogs.  I wish I could send me frogs outside to live in trees, but they seem to prefer my stitching instead.

Dee had done a fabulous job stitching and finishing your project. It's beautiful.

Absolutely stunning, I love it. I tried to get a set of boxes yesterday, but there were none left, so will just have to paint my own.
