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 stitched this festive drum on 35 count linen with overdyed threads, using a Stacy Nash design. Measuring just under 3 1/2” in diameter, and 2 1/2” tall, it is firmly stuffed with a mixture of sawdust, and crushed walnut shells. The sides and bottom are 2 coordinating Moda fabrics. I’ve added a few antique buttons and some glass head pins, as well as a snowflake charm to the top. It comes signed and dated, and travel fare is $8.00.

This Snowmen, is an original from my 2018 collection. He’s punched using a combination of Valdani threads, Perle cotton and DMC threads. He’s very firmly stuffed, and mounted on an antique bobbin, has 2 sizes of bells added, and measures 8 1/2" tall, and 5" wide. He comes signed and dated. Asking $52. with travel fare of $9...let me know if you would like to have tracking added. Sorry... no orders please.

These pure beeswax buttons were poured using molds which were made from vintage Santa buttons, and the wax comes from our own hives here in Northern Ontario. The buttons can be used as thread waxers for your stitching needs, or displayed as is on the cards. I printed the cards, using photos of some of my own Christmas stitches done with designs by Barbara Ana, Kathy Barrick, La D Da, and The Primitive Needle. Each button is attached with floss, the same way that the old vintage buttons would have been attached. Price is for each button card, and travel fare is $3.00. I have the cards numbered to make it easier to chose. Sorry...no orders please.

“Into The Woods” is a design by Barbara Ana Designs. I created this Huswife with a Firmly stuffed wool pincushion (filled with crushed walnut shells ) in the middle so that it can fold up and be displayed standing. Stitched on linen with overdyed threads, it has 3 coordinating Moda fabrics. I’ve added some vintage buttons as closures, and some glass head pins, as well as a reindeer charm. Travel fare is $9...let me know if you would like to have tracking added. Please click on the photo to see additional pictures. Sorry...no orders please.

“And Rudolf” is a design by La-D-Da. Stitched on overdyed linen, with overdyed threads, the Pinkeep measures 7 1/2” long, and 3 1/2” wide. The backing is a Moda fabric by Kathy Schmitz, and the seam is trimmed with vintage chenille that I stained with walnut ink. It is very firmly stuffed with a mixture of wood shavings and crushed walnut shells, and I’ve added some glass head pins to the front, and a sweet reindeer charm to the back. Travel fare is $9...let me know if you would like to have tracking added. Please click on the photo to see an additional picture. Sorry, no orders please.

These pure beeswax spools were poured using a mold made from a vintage carved Santa spool. The spool itself is the size of a small thread spool (1 1/4” high, and 1” wide). I’ve used 2 vintage buttons and some different charms or bells, and they’re strung on vintage overdyed rayon ribbon. They can be used as scissor fobs, thread waxers, or ornaments. Price is for each one, and travel fare is $7. Please click on the photo to see additional picture...I have them numbered to make it easier to choose.
