Pattern Preview!

Welcome to day 1 of the count down to the Nashville Needlework Market.
Join me here for the next 4 days
 to see the new 2016 Spring/Summer pattern line
 from
With thy Needle & Thread.
 
"The Gilmour Sewing Tray"
An 18th century wool coverlet was the inspiration for this piece.  The simple farmhouse was the signature motif of the Gilmour brothers.  I chose to work the piece in ivory tones for a fresh, white farmhouse feel.  The piece would look great worked on an dirty ecru linen with rusty red or navy flosses as well.  The unfinished wooden tray allows you to choose your color palette and paint it accordingly.  Trays will be available for purchase.


"A Weaver's Work"
 Another adaptation from an antique wool coverlet and a great companion piece to the Gilmour House sewing tray.   After some research on this weaver, I was excited to learn that he spent some time in my home state of Iowa.  I chose to work this in neutral tones and was excited to find what I felt was the perfect Larson-Juhl frame for this piece.  This piece too could certainly be worked in other colors of flosses.

"Spring Frolic at Bunny Hill"
Two frolicking rabbits adorn the lid of a Lone Elm shaker box.  I chose to fill the box with paper grass and tucked some eggs into the "nest".  The lid is then standing in the box and makes for a fun spring-time vignette!
 
"Spring Delivery"
Leaping rabbit, tulips and a basket filled with springtime flowers creates a fun spring-time mini sampler.  Perfect for Easter, yet could be kept out year round.   A big "Thank You" to April Taylor for stitching this model.
 
See you tomorrow for Day 2 of pattern previews!
 
Kindly,
Brenda

Hi, Brenda--Glenna from Eye of the Needle here. I don't think I am a member of SW, although I can see friends' posts because they're friends. No, I didn't know that someone used my photo in conjunction with posting the chart. That is very upsetting. Not being a member and not being able to see it, I don't know if there's anything I can do about it.

Love your Nashville stuff--I am the proud owner of four of your new charts, and will go back to In Stitches on Wednesday and will buy a couple more.

Cette maison me plait beaucoup et j'en aime bien le format
cela ressort bien sur le lin bistre

This house agree to me, and the format width, I really like it.
the pattern looks great on this beige linen color
