Honeycomb and Threads

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.

The squirrel design is stitched with overdyed threads on 35 count overdyed linen. It is completely padded inside and out, has 2 coordinating Moda fabrics, and I’ve used wool for the inside pocket and pincushion. I’ve added a few pins, a tiny acorn charm, and a small antique needle pack in the pocket. There’s also an antique button on the front used for the closure., Measurements are 3 3/8” across and 3” high, and travel fare is 8.00. I have 2 available with the inside and back fabrics for each reversed. Please click on photo to see additional pictures.
I stitched this drum on 35 count linen with overdyed threads using my own design, and the sides and bottom are 2 coordinating Moda fabrics. It is firmly stuffed with a mix of sawdust, crushed walnut shells and a small amount of lavender giving it a nice soft scent. I’ve added some glass head pins and an owl charm to the top. The drum measures 3 1/4” in diameter, and 3” tall, and comes signed and dated. Travel fare is 8.50. Please click on photo to see additional picture.
These Spiderweb Scissors Cases are all one of a kind, and they come with a petite pair of scissors measuring just over 2 1/2”. The case measures 3 3/4” high and 2 5/8” across, and is stitched on 35 count overdyed linen with overdyed thread. It is completely padded both inside and out, and the back and inside are two coordinating Moda fabrics. The tiny strawberry fob, which is a spiderweb design fabric is only 1 inch long and is firmly filled with crushed walnut shells. I’ve added an antiqued silver spider charm to the fob to match the scissors. Travel fare is $8.00. Please click on photo to see additional pictures.
These Halloween themed thread waxers are made with pure beeswax, which comes from our own hives 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. Each one comes in it’s own bag for storage. Price is for one waxer with bag, and travel fare is $6.00. Please click on photo to see additional pictures. Waxers are numbered in second photo to make it easier to choose.
