A Little Bit of This and A Little Bit of That by Linda Damiani

Instructions for “A Little Bit of This and A Little Bit of That” by Linda Damiani was in the stash we got from Mae V-D, a member of the ANG Main Line Stitchers chapter who passed away in 2015.

A couple of members of our chapter remembered Linda was from our area but had moved away. I was able to locate her & I called her. She moved away from needlepoint to other crafts but was happy to grant us permission to copy & distribute the instructions once again to our members.

Again using Mae’s canvas and threads, we stitched 2 projects from the booklet.

A true stash buster using miscellaneous threads grabbed randomly. See how each looks slightly different using the same threads?

Bits and Pieces

And, there was a lovely Florentine Star that I choose to do off center rather than locating the star directly center and making it a full 4-way pattern. I had such fun doing these that I did them in multiple colors.
