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 bargello pattern. I had such fun doing these that I did them in multiple colors.

What a nice project for your chapter. Love what you did with the Florentine Star–each one looks so very different and beautiful (I favor the black and white one).

I guess I should retake the first picture – it’s a purple not black. But, I like that one too.

Offsetting the star seems to make it much more dramatic. How nice of the designer to allow you to copy her design. Looks like you had fun stitching it. Sue

Very nice! Reminds me a bit of Mad Miters! I favor the bottom one.

That’s my favorite too. I saved the best for last!
