My consignment business is keeping me hopping with the inventory of a closed needlework shop.
But I want to keep you updated with my latest finishes. Feel free to click on the photos for a closeup.
This Samplers and Such Tin Toppers kit came to me in a consignment. The stitching was almost completed. So I sat down one night and finished it. The seller told me I could keep it. She is so nice :) It is stitched with a Needle Necessities overdye thread.
This is a little better close-up.
This little pin holder was a favor at the 2012 Northwest Sampler Guild tea. Only took me 3 years :)
It is inspired by Sajou souvenir postcards and stitched with perforated paper and Vikki Clayton BeSmurfed silk floss.
This design is Crabapple Hill's Farm Stand Bouquet. I got it at a class with Meg last summer. The fabrics on the top are to make a wallhanging with this.
My EGA secret pal gave me this little Drawn Thread pattern, fabric and Gloriana silks to stitch it with. Wow! I think I'll keep her. She is a great secret pal! This will also fit the lid of an Altoids tin.
I am almost embarrassed to show you all the stash I have gotten lately. Well, not too awfully embarrassed because here it is-
I have another great patriotic pattern that I want to stitch and it will fit perfectly into the box above.
Just Nan is starting to GROW on me :)
Yes, I joined the Shining Needle Society class with Barbara Jackson. There is pretty much nothing of Barbara's that I don't like.
See, another Just Nan.
This is an exciting BOM with Braidwood Heritage Crafts on Etsy using Cottage Garden Threads from Australia. Each months design is from a different Australian designer. I'm just joining in at the beginning of the 2nd year. And so far, I am loving the designs and the thread
I've never seen Terry Drydens Stripes Galore. It must be an old design as I don't see it on her website. It is lovely!
This is Scarlett House Margaret Lillie with Dinky Dye threads, fabric and box to mount the finished product on. Let's hope Margaret doesn't languish too long!
And last but not least, another Crabapple Hill beauty. I bought the kit below to make this pillow.
I am enjoying your blogs so much. And even though I normally don't have the time to comment, you inspire me and keep me laughing at the same time. Thanks for taking the time to stop by!
