Marilyn Leavitt-Imblum of Told in a Garden


"Nantucket Rose"
Designed by Marilyn Leavitt-Inblum. Stitched in 2004, over the early part of the year. It took about 60 days of stitching time, or probably about 175 hours. Stitched with DMC floss on 32-count Belfast linen. I bought this design because I love the little house. It reminds me of where we vacation, in Kelowna, B.C.

"1997 Christmas Angel"
Designed by Marilyn Leavitt-Inblum. Stitched in March 2004. Stitched with DMC floss, unknown gold braid, and Mill Hill Seed Beads on 32-count Hunter Green Evenweave. Very pretty! Definately the most Christmassy of her angels. I finished it into a mini bellpull in October 2012.


"1994 Christmas Angel"
Designed by Marilyn Leavitt-Inblum. Stitched some in December 2003, and the rest in March 2004. Stitched with DMC floss, Rainbow Gallery Petite Treasure braid, on 32-count Lugana fabric in platinum. I think it's absolutely lovely, but I will tell you the border was a pain! One strand braid and one strand floss on 32-count evenweave does not a happy stitcher make! The finishing looks better in person - my camera skills are deplorable.


"1999 Christmas Angel"
Designed by Marilyn Leavitt-Inblum. Stitched on 10-31-03. Stitched with DMC floss, Rainbow Galler Wisper thread, and Mill Hill seed beads, on 32-count Lugana fabric in Mushroom. The photo is shot from a weird angle so the gold thread wouldn't wash out. It's finished into a teardrop shape.


"2000 Christmas Angel"
Designed by Marilyn Leavitt-Inblum. Stitched on 10-26-03 - 10-28-03. Stitched with DMC floss, Rainbow Galler Petite Treasure Braid, and Mill Hill seed beads, on hand-dyed Lugana fabric in 32-count. The color is "Rose Petals", and is a soft pink evenweave from Silkweaver.


"Celtic Christmas"
Designed by Marilyn Leavitt-Inblum. Completed on 02-13-01, after about three months of stitching. Stitched with DMC floss and metallics, on the recommended Willow Green Permin Linen. Accented with Mill Hill Seed Beads.
