Let the People Choose - August

 Hello Blogging friends,

Jo of Serendipitous Stitching hosts the SAL called  `Let the People Choose´, celebrated on the first Saturday of each month. This month our theme is Books, so do join us if you would like to show any stitching you have done about this subject.

Years ago  I made a fabric book of embroidery stitches for my granddaughter.

It has lots of pages and is full of colourful stitches and small embroidered details.

I also endeavoured one day to cover a folder to hold some ribbons and laces.

And make a couple of small books as gifts. A small heart with speciality stitches and ribbon roses.

And a pattern by Veronique Enginger where I have actually embroidered a tiny book! I think it must be the only one stitched that I have found in my files.

Irish crochet bookmarks. A lovely pattern by Anne Potts to which  I added tiny crochet flowers  with beads and leaves to add some color.

An elastic bookmark I made from a hardanger design by Mabel Figworthy.

Another little notebook cover which I embroidered copying part of a drawing found in my grandad´s sketchbook.

I seem to have a whole collection of embroidered needlebooks too, but I´ll leave those for another day and lastly include here a book cover made following a design by Marie Suarez.

Thank you for stopping by and looking.    



  1. Thanks for taking part in The People's Choice this month. You have stitched so many beautiful books. I remember the one for your daughter very well.
    I love the dancing people from your grandad's drawings, I'd like to learn more about that project.

  2. Ooh. Great books! I think the bookmarks are my favorite, though! :-)

  3. Sheryl, truly, there are no words to describe the exquisiteness of everything you so beautifully embroider and fashion. Each tiny little stitch takes my breath away♡ The fabric book you so lovingly stitched for your granddaughter is amazing....but then, so is everything you have shown us today. How I would love to turn each page of your granddaughter's little book and finger each one of those sublime stitches. Just look at that sweet little bear peeking from behind the page. Such beauty♡

  6. I so enjoyed seeing all of your beautiful "book" themed stitching, Sheryl. It is all so beautifully done and delicate looking. I especially love your granddaughter's book--how precious. It will be treasured I'm sure! The little blue book you made to hold the lace is so sweet, too. Honestly, I could go on and on, but you are truly a talented, talented needleworker!
