A Needlework Casket to beat all Caskets!

I am so addicted to needlework sets and needlework caskets.  I found this one on line and, as the caption states, it is the mother of all needlework caskets.

I must admit, this design is a little/lot out of my league -- I'm still working on the Mary Beale casket!  But, I do, as I said, love a needlework casket.  So, I found someone to make a primitive miniature blanket chest and am presently working on the design that will go inside.  I'll post pictures when it is complete, but here is a picture of the blanket chest.
It has a lift out tray inside which will have a design embroidered for it.  The smalls are almost complete.  I can't wait to finish it and post the pictures.  I think you will really like the design.

Yours in stitches,



  1. Forget the casket, it's you I'm glad to see! I'm delighted you've started a blog and will check back often. As for you being a fledgling designer, all I've got to say about that is hogwash.

  2. Gorgeous casket! I see from the sidebar you have stitched Celtic too!

  3. Hey MaryLou,

    As I said, I am a little slow on the uptake where this blogging thing is concerned.LOL

    Yes, I've been away for a while but have been keeping busy. I'm finally ready to test my designing wings. Wish me luck.

    and ...

    Hi mj, yes, I stitched the Celtic Banner a long time ago and gave it to my daughter as a housewarming gift when she and her family moved to their new home. I enjoyed stitching it and the design is still one of my favorites.

  4. HI Theresa,
    I think your blog is beautiful. I met you at the Berks County Sampler Symposium in PA. I loved your bullion knots!


  5. It is always good to check for some deals before you eventually get the merchandise. Even in grief, being aware of your options will save you significant money and time.
