SPOKEN FOR/SOLD Thank You!
September always makes me think of school days, 
so I've chosen to offer 2 of my 4 listings to represent just that.


Velvet Apple Emery and Alphabet Sampler Set





The velvet apple is handmade with cotton hand dyed deep red velvet and stuffed entirely with finely crushed walnut shells, giving the apple a nice weight and it will keep your pins sharp if you choose to use it as a pin cushion.  The apple has been embellished with a tea dyed ruler print cotton ribbon, a rusty safety pin and vintage button.  Little apple measures 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 inches.

The Alphabet sampler bowl filler has been hand cross stitched by me, with coordinating patch worked civil war print fabrics have added onto to the stitchery along the side.  The back is finished in a natural cotton canvas fabric and the inside stuffed with polyfil.  The wee pillow has been decorated with a rusty safety pin and hand dyed, crinkly aged ribbon.  Measures 5 x 5 1/2 inches.  
Lovely as a bowl filler or pin cushion!

Kindly asking $45 for the set plus shipping.

NOW SOLD - THANK YOU!

Alphabet Sampler Box




The cross stitch pattern is a reproduction by Kathy Barrick of an antique French school girl's sampler work, stitched by my hand.  The cross stitch fabric has been tea dyed and aged for a well loved, worn look.  I've mounted the stitchery onto a new wooden box which I stained and sealed.  The lid is embellished with vintage mother of pearl buttons, a raggy calico print bow, and rusty safety pin.  The lid is not hinged on, it fully removes from the box.  Measures 9L x 4W x 2D inches

This sweet box is perfect for all manner of smalls from pens and pencils to sewing and stitching supplies...the choice is yours!  

Kindly asking $38 plus shipping.
