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.

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.

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.
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.
