Incorrigible Children Needlepoint


Cotton DMC six-strand floss embroidered onto vintage cotton from a high school quilting project. Reads “Complaining doesn’t butter the biscuit” in green. Black or white grosgrain ribbon can be added for hanging.


This piece was inspired by Maryrose Wood’s first book in her Incorrigible Children series, The Mysterious Howling. In the series, the main character is inspired by a variety of sayings by her finishing school headmistress, Agatha Swanburne. I’m working to stitch my way through all the quotes in the series. Help me choose my next project at the survey here.

50% of the profits from the sale of this piece will be donated to Running Start, an organization dedicated to bringing young women into politics.
