itibit sampler is finished!

The itibits of stitching are complete!
I had great fun doing this and it was amazing
how many ideas for one inch squares popped into my head.  
Now I am considering the Counting My Blessings Stitch-Along.
One hundred is a lot of squares.
I wonder if I give myself a year to complete it, if I will?
Or maybe the key is to stitch a square a day?
As with this project, some days I stitched 2 or 3 squares
and other days none.

I'm itching to stitch some vintage dish towels...
dancing forks & knives
 tomatoes with eye lashes
like these
I'm thinking redwork.


  1. Oh Jody!

    I'm so glad you posted this! Your sampler is beautiful and you know it really is a unique treasure. It tells a story that is yours. Maybe it can be a "point and tell" heirloom of special stories you pass on to others.

    Thank you for sharing all your patient stitching with us!


  2. It's great Jody! I especially love your cupcake and spool of thread!!!

  3. What a treasure! What a beautiful piece! Are you going to frame it? I clicked to enlarge it and was entranced by the details of each pretty! I can't wait to see your blessings sampler!

  4. This came out gorgeous! I loved looking at each square. I love vintage dish towels and especially the dancing forks, knives and plates! Have a great day!

  5. What fun! The finished product is great...

  6. Just beautiful! I bought a towel and some Aunt Martha iron-ons last weekend at a quilt shop hop. I picked a pattern with fruit; I love the vintage look.

  7. Your sampler is beautiful! I love this concept and have enjoyed reading/seeing little embroidered squares created by blogland friends.


  8. Great job on the sampler! There are so many cute ones, but I think my favorite is the robin. If you go for the redwork dish towels check out the book Redwork from the Workbasket by Rebecca Kemp. I just spied this book at the bookstore the other day...looks fabulous!

  9. Looks GOOD!!!!!!!
    I am also drawn to redwork.
    I bought a whole bunch of red floss...and now I have used it on other things.
    I can buy more....

  10. Yeah, I am so proud of you. It is soo sweet. I love each square and special memory. Clarice

  11. Love it. The robin, the robin's nest, and the meadowlark are my favorites. A good reminder of spring.

  12. Embroidery is something I can not get the hang of. I love it, just can't do it worth a darn. I love your blog, I was raised on a farm, it's a good life.

  13. I know I've already said it, but I love this!!! It is so YOU! This is very motivating to me to give it a try.

  14. It looks great! Love the dancing fruit for dish towels.

  15. I love your spool of thread and American flag squares the best. Congratulations on finishing. I'm still in the midst of mine. Wonderful inspiration, Thanks!

  16. Jody, I love your sampler, it is full of who you are :) The ideas and the way you have transferred them into stitchery is wonderful.
    You are an inspiration to me.
