Mouse and Berry Pincushion *SOLD*

I’ve stitched this sweet mouse from plush felt. It has beady little eyes, and stitched nose and mouth. The ears are lined with linen. It holds a wool strawberry trimmed with seed beads. A wool collar is wrapped about its neck. I’ve stitched it to a tuffet of coverlet fabric, trimmed with rusty bells. A vintage spool of thread completes the piece. A bit over nine inches tall. Created with many loving stitches in my smoke free home, a Sassafras Hill original. *'Tis Spoken for, many thanks!*

**SOLD**Wool Punched Shamrock Pinkeep

I love how this turned out. It looks like I could have found it in a box of treasures at an antique store. The shamrock is created by rug punching with hand dyed and aged 100% wool yarn, so the variation in shades is charming. The background is an open weave linen from Scotland. The shamrock is surrounded by a wreath of cross stitches worked in cotton thread. The back is a piece of reproduction fabric and bears my signature. It is firmly stuffed with local carded wool so if using as a pinkeep, your pins will stay sharp and rust free. The height is about two inches and the circumference is almost six inches.
