Wool Heart with Stitched Tulip

A 6 1/2" wool heart with a cross stitched tulip. The wool I used for this heart is a wonderful hand dyed red which I stuffed with wool snippets for a nice heavy antique feel. The cross stitch tulip in a pot is my own design and stitched on a 32 count tan linen measuring 3 1/4" by 2 1/2". I added a hanger with the same hand dyed wool by attaching 2 bone rings to the top. The strap is stitched onto the rings with two old buttons. Shipping is $4.00 and comes from a smoke free home.

Love Bird Pincushion On Oil Can****SOLD****

This sweet pincushion, a Brenda Gervais Design, is stitched on 32 count linen with overdyed threads. The backing is a rich, dark red wool, and I’ve used a feather stitch with Valdani threads around the seam. I mounted it onto an old oil can and added some stained vintage style lace. Overall height is 5 1/2”, and it measures 5” across. I’ve also added some glass head pins, a few vintage buttons, and it comes signed and dated. Travel fare is $8.00.

Vintage Style Oval Pinkeep Drum****SOLD****

I love the colors and vintage look of this design, “Christmas Cactus” by Blackbird Designs. It’s stitched on 35 count linen with overdyed threads, and I’ve lightly stained it, so it has a really nice aged look. The sides and bottom are 2 coordinating reproduction fabrics. It is firmly stuffed with a mixture of sawdust, ground walnut shells, and lavender, giving it a nice soft scent. I’ve also added some glass head pins, a few vintage buttons along with a charm, and it comes signed and dated. The oval shape measures 4 1/2” wide and 3 1/4” deep, and the height of the drum is 2 1/2”. Travel fare is $8.00. Please click on the photo to see an additional picture.

I thought these measuring tapes would be perfect for Valentines Day. Each motif, from the BBD Sampler “Love One Another”, is stitched with overdyed threads on linen, and the sides and backs of each are 2 different coordinating fabrics. The top and bottom are lightly padded with batting. The hearts measure 2 3/4” high and 3” across, and just over 1/2” deep. Price is for each tape, and travel fare is $6.00.
