My January Update

My my here we are another year gone by and a new one has begun! I hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday season and your new year is off to a fantastic start! I hope today you will find a treasure you would like to have. I have created several new pieces that I think you will like!  Thanks so much for stopping by. Please check all the other fabulous artists offerings too. 

Im sorry I had to take all my pics inside due to the chilly weather and that cold, wet, white stuff on the ground!! If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask! Thanks so much. 

First is my make do/pincushion heart design using over dyed wool for the heart and beautiful glass beads to write the word mother on the front. It’s mounted on an old vintage wooden spool and stands 12” tall and about 5” wide. It’s stuffed with fiberfill. Kindly asking $20 plus travel fare. 

My next heart is a bit bigger with lovely fabric that I’ve stained, sanded and also mounted it on a large vintage thread spool standing 15 1/2” tall and 7+” wide. I have added a piece of vintage stained lace on the right upper side, also adding a stained tag saying “love” plus a stained bias tape bow, both attached with a rusty safety pin. The bottom has a stained piece of lacey fabric, with a stained lace trim along the top of that. Kindly asking $25 plus travel fare (which will be a bit more as it’s quite tall and heavier. I will ship the cheapest possible. ) sale pending thanks Kristina

Next is one of my doll head tomato pincushions. This is my design and each is always one of a kind. The little doll head is made of stained and sanded muslin with added hand stitched mouth and pinch stitched nose and needle felted wool locks for hair. The tomato was made from over dyed wool and is stuffed firmly with crushed walnut shells giving it a nice feel and weight. It’s about 5” wide and 4 1/2” tall Kindly asking $23 plus travel fare. 
Sold thanks so much Lynn.

One more little heart! This one is made from over dyed wool and mounted on a small vintage wooden spool. I have added little bits of vintage lace and trim and a small rusty safety pin with buttons. I have stuffed it firmly with polyfil. It’s 7 1-2” tall and about 3 1/2” wide. Kindly asking $18 plus travel fare. 

This is a small pouch made of vintage pieces of an old quilt, hand sewn together and I hand sewed an over dyed wool heart on the front. I have added some dried flowers that I can include but are very fragile so they may not travel as well, but I will include them. The bag has a piece of old, stained, large rick rack as a strap/hanger. It’s 6” tall without the strap/hanger and 3 1/2” wide. Kindly asking $12 plus travel fare.  Sold thanks so much Cheryl.

I have another fun little bird! He is out of osnaburg and has been stained, painted and sanded and then mounted on an old vintage wooden spool. He has little wings, a head tuft and a tail made from stained and stiffened cheese cloth that I have sewn in place plus added some along the bottom. I tried to capture his wings and tail but hard to do inside I hope you can see them. Kindly asking $15 plus travel fare. 

My last piece is a small, all hand stitched pin, made from a piece of felted, stained, piece of wool. I gave stitched small flowers from wool floss and added a rusty safety pin to the bottom with some old MOP buttons. It measures 2 3/4” long by 1 3/4” tall. Kindly asking $13 which includes shipping. I will be posting another pin and bird on my Facebook page in the next couple of days so please stop there and take a look! Thanks.
