Handmade treasures from our home to yours

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.

These Easter themed thread waxers are pure beeswax which comes from our own bees here in Northern Ontario, and they have a wonderful honey scent. Waxers have been used for centuries by stitchers to condition their threads...it reduces fraying and tangling, and the thread glides smoothly through your fabric. The rabbits measure 2 3/4" from their base to the tip of their ears, and just under 1 3/4" wide. The set of 4 measure from 1 1/8" for the eggs, to 1 5/8" for the rabbit. They each come with their own small Spring colored bags for storage. Price is $6. for the rabbbits, and $7. for the set of 4, with travel fare of $5.
A design by Notforgotten Farm, that I’ve always loved, Rabbit Stew is stitched on linen using overdyed threads. The pillow is edged with pom pom trim from Dames of The Needle, has a Moda fabric backing, and it is stuffed with a mixture of fibrefill and crushed walnut shells. It measures 7” wide, and 6” high. Travel fare is $8.00. Please click on the photo to see additional pictures.
This drum, which I adapted from a Blackbird Designs Pinkeep, is cross stitched on linen using overdyed threads. The top and bottom, which are 2 coordinating reproduction fabrics, are edged with a herringbone stitch. It is firmly stuffed with a mix of sawdust, crushed walnut shells and lavender, giving it a nice soft scent. I’ve added a few black head pins, and pearl buttons, plus I’ve also attached a hook on the side, which holds a tiny pair of embroidery scissors. The drum measures 3 1/2” high, and 2 3/4” in diameter. Travel fare is 8.00, and the drum comes signed and dated. Please click on the photo to see additional pictures.
I thought these Egg shaped measuring tapes would be perfect for this time of year. Each one is different and unique, with a cross stitched top, and 2 different Moda fabrics used for the sides and bottom. Most are my own designs, except for the rabbits, with #3 being by Pineberry Lane, and the others from Zweigart. The tops and bottoms are lightly padded with batting. Measurements are 3” high, 2 1/8” wide, and about 5/8” deep. Price is for each tape, and travel fare is $7.
