Handmade treasures from our home to yours

September Update



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 design for this Witchy Huswife is from a chart by Barbara Ana Designs, and was stitched using overdyed threads on linen. I used a variety of coordinating cotton fabrics, and there are 2 nice sized pockets to hold your scissors and other stitching extras. I’ve attached a bone ring at the top for hanging, plus 3 to hold some of your threads, and there are 2 layers of over dyed wool to hold your pins. I’ve also added some glass head pins, a pumpkin charm, and a few vintage buttons. Scissors and accessories shown in photo are not included. Measurements are 14” high, and 4 3/4” wide. Travel fare is $9.00 without tracking...please let me know if you’d like to have tracking added. Please click on photo to see additional picture. Sorry...no orders please.
This orange pumpkin, a design by SubRosa, was stitched on 35 count overdyed linen in black, and I used a great coordinating fabric with an antique button for the bottom. It is firmly stuffed and has a real pumpkin stem. I’ve added some glass head pins, a few vintage buttons, and a small pumpkin charm. Measurements are 5” across, and about 4” tall to the top of the stem. Travel fare is $9.00 without tracking... let me know if you’d like to have tracking added. Please click on the photo to see additional pictures. Sorry, no orders.
These “Black Cat” measuring tapes, taken from charts by various designers (Threadwork Primitives, Barbara Ana and Prairie Schooler) are all stitched on linen with over dyed threads. The tops and bottoms are 2 coordinating Moda fabrics, are lightly padded with cotton batting, and they measure about 2” high, and between 2-2 1/2” wide. I have 2 of each available...please specify number of design you would like when ordering. Price is for each tape, and travel fare is $8. without tracking... if you would like tracking added, please let me know. . Sorry...no orders please.
Each of these “Black Cat” Needleminders, which I created with my fellow stitchers in mind, is stitched on overdyed linen, with overdyed threads, and is lightly padded with batting. The backs are completely covered with a coordinating 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 the 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 $5. When claiming, please indicate by number. Sorry, but no orders.
