Honeycomb and Threads

Handmade treasures from our home to yours

 SEPTEMBER UPDATE 

Hello, and welcome to "Honeycomb and Threads".  My name is Cathy Tonelli, and I live in Northern Ontario, Canada. I'm so honored to be a part of this amazing group of talented artists.  I have been stitching, and creating with all types of fabrics, threads and different materials for as long as I can remember, as well as collecting all things old, which I often try to use in my finishing.  Our bees supply us with sweet smelling beeswax, which I've been working with for many years.  I am very excited and so looking forward to sharing my love of creating with you.

If you have any questions, or to purchase, please feel free to contact me at any time at honeycombandthreads@mail.com

The design I used on this Huswife is from Plum Street Samplers “My Pretties”, stitched with overdyed threads on “Witches Brew” linen by Dames of the Needle. I used 2 great coordinating Moda fabrics, and black rayon ribbon wraps around an antique button to close it. I’ve added 3 bone rings to hold your threads, a black wool strip for your needles, and 2 old pearl buttons are attached with a safety pin. The pocket is nice and deep to hold your scissors, extra threads, and other notions. Measurements are 7” x 12 1/2” and when rolled it measures 7” x 4 1/4”. The Huswife comes signed and dated, and travel fare is $7.00. Please click on photo to see additional picture.

The drum measures 3” high, and 3 3/4” in diameter. Travel fare is $8.00. Please click on photo to see additional pictures.
