August Offerings

 

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 Halloween drum on 35 count linen with overdyed threads, and used 2 coordinating Moda fabrics for the sides and bottom. The design is a small part of a Sampler by Lila's Studio which I changed up a bit. 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, a few pearl buttons, and a charm. The drum measures 3 1/4” in diameter, and about 3” tall, and it comes signed and dated. Travel fare is 8.50. Please click on the photo to see additional pictures.

This Halloween pumpkin is taken from a design by Brenda Gervais, and I’ve stitched it on 35 count linen using overdyed threads. It’s completely padded with cotton batting, the back has 2 coordinating Moda fabrics, and I’ve pinned a Halloween charm to the front. On the right hand side I’ve attached 4 black bone rings to hold your threads, and in the pocket on the back I’ve added some glass head pins, and a pair of primitive scissors. It measures just over 5” high, and 2 1/2” wide. Travel fare is $8.00. Please click on the photo to see additional pictures.

Halloween Jack is my own design, and is stitched on 32 count linen with overdyed threads. The tops and bottoms are lightly padded with batting, and they measure 2 1/2” high, and just under 2 1/2” wide. The sides, back and stem are three coordinating Moda fabrics, and each one is a different mix, with no two alike. Price is for each tape, and travel fare is $8.
