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.

This design is by Blackbird Designs, which I thought would make a great drum. It’s stitched with overdyed threads on linen, and is firmly stuffed with a mix of sawdust and crushed walnut shells, and a small amount of lavender giving it a nice soft scent. I’ve added 2 wool topped strawberry emeries, both firmly stuffed with ground walnut shells, and they’re attached with an old bone button. The sides and bottom are 2 coordinating Moda fabrics, and I’ve added a few glass head pins to the top. The drum measures 3 1/2”in diameter, and about 2 1/4” high, and the strawberries are 1 1/2” and 1 3/4”, and it comes signed and dated. Travel fare is $10 without tracking, and $15 with...please let me know which you’d like.Please click on the photo to see additional pictures.

This needlebook, which is based on a Chessie & Me design is stitched with overdyed threads on 35 count overdyed linen. Both the front and back are padded with cotton batting, and I’ve used 3 coordinating Moda fabrics. The inside has a pocket to hold a tiny pair of scissors (2 1/2”) along with a matching fob, and a small bird shaped needle threader which is held by some twill tape., and on the bottom there are 2 layers of wool for your needles and pins. A vintage button on the front holds it closed. Measurements are 6”wide, and just over 2 3/4” high when closed. Travel fare is $15 with tracking. Please click on photo to see additional pictures.
