New Springtime arrivals are here
After a long cold winter, robin sightings are always so exciting. It was a snowy Saturday here in Iowa, but I did see my first robin (several of them actually) yesterday! We can be hopeful Spring is coming, and in the meantime, I have the perfect stitch for this time of year! A simple, sweet & quick-to-stitch cupboard door hanger that features our favorite springtime messenger perched upon a vase of tallow berries. A sweet scalloped border and old buttons frame the little sampler so nicely. Design is worked on 28 count gingham linen over 2 threads, using hand dyed flosses. Our linen order didn't arrive in time for the release of this chart, hoping to have it soon!
Look who is leading this years Easter Parade...Peter & Peep! The pattern cover makes this piece look much larger then it is, it is small and sweet at just 4 1/2" x 6". The cupboard tuck is worked on 40 count Espresso linen over two threads using hand dyed flosses. Vintage silk ribbon ruffled along the edges finish the piece off so nicely.
I had requests for this design in cross stitch after the piece released last year in punch needle.
So here you have it in cross stitch! The piece is sewn into a prim little ditty pouch with wool penny tongues and antique button trim. Fill the pocket with your favorite dried naturals and you have a fun piece to enjoy all spring. Design is worked on 35 count Espresso linen over two threads using hand dyed flosses.
An antique reproduction. I have several blog postings about this piece as it was a WIP.
An exquisite English sampler filled with a wonderful brick house, pink puppies, birds, flowers, a cute little man in the upper corner with his walking sticks and grapes. All are motifs that I love and look for in a sampler, but it was that large grapevine winding over the house that caught my eye & stole my heart.
Design is worked on 32 count linen over 1 & 2 threads using hand dyed flosses.
Are you seeing a trend yet? Look who's on Spring Break...Peter & Peep! A long and skinny cupboard tuck featuring my favorite springtime friends. Design is worked with hand dyed flosses. Pattern includes the weavers cloth and tracing template.
Spring peeps have hatched, and the tulips are all in bloom....look who has arrived in Tulip Town!
Just in time to nibble on a few sweet and tender tulip petals, too! This little punchneedle ditty pocket is a great companion piece to Spring Break. The pocket is backed in wool and has three old buttons stitched to the upper scallop. Fill the pocket with pussy willows and you have a perfect piece for your Easter and Spring time decorating! Design is worked with hand dyed flosses. Pattern includes a piece of weavers cloth and tracing template.
Warmer weather is in the forecast, hope it's the same for your "neck of the woods". Have a good week.
