New Patterns!

Now taking pre-orders for two new patterns.
Shipping of these will begin on Monday, June 27th.

First off...

Blooms & Berries

A pattern for 4 sweet little sewing companions. From left to right, let me describe...

1. Bird pin keep mounted on an antique sewing spool, complete with strawberry emery dangling from beak.
2. Next is a late 19th century antique reproduction sewing caddy. While the pattern does give a cutting template for the wooden sewing caddy, we are also offering un-finished wooden caddies for these, for those who don't have access to wood-working tools. The original of this piece was found in Monroe Co., PA.
3. Next is my personal favorite, a cross stitched pincushion with hand dyed rick rack ruching. A special little brown bird feels quite at home, perched upon the pin keep.
4. Lastly is a fun little pin /scissor/needle keep...so sweetly housed in a tiny 3" embroidery hoop. Piece has a hanger made from vintage seam tape ribbon for hanging next to your stitching chair or sewing machine.
Here is the backside...
isn't it cute?
A secret little safe-keeping spot for your scissors and needle. The Elizabeth scissors is a perfect fit for this little stitching companion. Available on our website, under the THIS & THAT category.

Lastly...
Today,
on this first day of Summer,
is the release day
and kick off
for the
Sampler of the Seasons sampler series.
"Sampler of the Season - Autumn"

(Thanks to Valley House Primitives for supplying us with the lovely frame...a perfect finish for this piece!)

The piece is worked on 30 count Iced Cappuccino linen by R&R Reproductions, stitched with Gentler Art flosses throughout. Watch for the Winter chart to release on the first day of Autumn...think of Christmas tree farm, horse-drawn sleigh rides, snowmen and ice skating.
The finished samplers in this 4 chart series will all be very similar in size...fitting the same frame, if you so choose to change out the piece each season.

Reserve your copies today and we'll begin shipping on Monday (I will be out of the office Thursday & Friday), orders will ship in the order received.

With thy Needle & Thread,
Brenda
