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 sweet Valentines Drum, from a BBD chart, using overdyed threads on linen. It measures 3 1/4” across, and about 2 1/4” tall. Firmly stuffed with a mixture of sawdust, crushed walnut shells and a small amount of lavender, it has a nice soft scent. I’ve added a few vintage pearl buttons, some glass head pins and a charm to the top. It comes signed and dated, and travel fare is 8.50. Please click on the photo to see additional picture.

I thought these measuring tapes would be perfect for Valentines Day. Each motif, most of which are 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 tops and bottoms are lightly padded with batting, and they measure 2 3/4” across, about 2 1/2” high, and just over 1/2”deep. Price is for each tape measure, and travel fare is 8.00. I have 8 available, and each one is numbered, with no 2 being alike. Please click on the photo to see additional pictures. Sorry, but no orders please.

Each of these Valentines needle minders, which I created with my fellow stitchers in mind, is stitched on linen using overdyed threads, and is lightly padded with batting. The backs are completely covered with a matching fabric. They will stay firmly in place, either on your stitching, or will attach to any metal surface, such as the base of your stitching lamp, to hold your needles. I’ve used small rare earth magnets with these, and they’re even strong enough to hold a small pair of scissors. They measure 1 5/8” across, and travel fare is 4.00. Please click on the photo to see additional picture of the back with magnet. Sorry, but no orders please. **Beeswax**
