In The Works.....

Here are two of my stitcheries in progress. 
All stitched up, antiqued and ready to be
made into something needful.
My fingers have been very busy this week. 

The one on the left is a Pineberry Lane Patten,
one of my favorites and I'll be making
it into a sewing needlebook with an inside 
pocket to hold your scissors and some
thread.  The other is a Stacy Nash 
Primitives pattern, which I'm pretty sure
is going to become a ditty bag with a 
homespun lining and handle.

So much to stitch and so little time.

Hoping your day is a productive one!

Today Sunday, Feb 21st is our  
The theme is Birds of a Feather, Create Together. 
If you like primtives of a bird nature you should
stop by and see all of our new creations.  
I made this pinkeep that features twin peacocks 
in the shades of blue on the front and a tweed 
wool heart on the back.  It's firmly stuffed with 
sawdust and the fabric is a farmhouse blues 
reproduction cotton.


Happy viewing !

A Tisket A Tasket

Here's the latest piece that I'm working on.
I thought I'd show you what it looks like before I 
finish it into a little sewing box.

It's done on 32ct raw linen that's been 
stained and the floss is very muted
colors of drab brown, tan and green
Old mop buttons are sewn on for flowers.
I hope to offer this next month on TDIPT.

I just finished the velvet and wool 
strawberry scissor fob for my little pair
of sewing scissors.  I love how they turned
out and they make me smile.

better view.

Happy stitching !

My New Listings on TDIPT Mercantile


Above is a hanging pinkeep stitched on chocolate
linen and has a blue and cream homespun patch 
to hold all your pins and needles.  A little gold velvet 
strawberry hangs from it.  The design is by 
Notforgotten Farm.

This little needlebook has mother of pearl flowers, wool
leaves and stitched stems.  Inside is an overdyed 
piece of wool to keep all your pins in a safe place.

This pinkeep is cross stitched on antiqued linen
in overdyed thread of school house red.  The 
accent fabric is a very soft rose patterned flannel.
Lined and stuffed with sawdust. This pattern is
from The Workbasket.
