Hello friends, I can hardly believe
it's Friday already....time
flies when you're having fun!
I've got lots of different things to share
with you today, so I'll start by
giving you a preview of a
antique lusterware pincushion.
~ Musical pet pincushion ~
This sweet little pincushion is very nicely detailed with bright colors. The glaze is
brilliant, producing a display of lustrous, rainbow like colors.
Lusterware was made in Japan during the 1920's ~ 1930's. True
lusterware will always be stamped on the bottom, as this one is.
This little pet still has it's original velvet pincushion.
I'll be adding this to my Etsy Shoppe later today.
Last week I had featured these three retired
If you are interested there is still time left....these three Ebay auctions
will be ending tonight around 9:00 my time. So if you're interested
in adding one of these to YOUR sewing bag...go to my Ebay
shoppe & check out these three auctions before it's too late!
I've have a couple inquiries about the sampler that I used
yesterday in the photo featuring the "Saltbox Hill"
needle minder...so here is the complete photo
of that sampler.

What a coincidence....this just happens to be another WISCONSIN
I just love the three little black crows on the roof!
Today's featured book...
"Country Living Collectibles ~ Rabbits"
Hardcover ~ 47 pages
This is the back cover.
I'm pretty sure I'm not the only "Rabbit" lover out
their....so this is a fun little book for my fellow
rabbit collectors to check out.... it's full of great color
pictures to drool over.
Does anyone else have a stash of small scraps of
linen that they don't know what to do with...
but just can't get rid of either?
|~ here's some of my odds & ends.... ~|
Last night while stitching I came up with an idea for my scraps...I'll be
working on some models right after I finish my
first two sampler releases at the end of the month.
So, hopefully sometime in June I will reveal my new idea!
I'll be finishing up on the stitching of "Spring Meadow"
probably today or tomorrow....I've already been
going through my frame stash hoping to find
JUST THE RIGHT ONE!
Time for me to go now...enjoy this pretty old photo.
I love SPOTTED RABBITS...they remind my of the "Jacob" sheep
mentioned in the Bible, which were spotted sheep.
When we first moved to our farm about 15 years ago ~ I actually had a
beautiful flock of Jacob sheep.
I had two big rams; Gideon & Boaz
My girls were; Queen Esther, Hannah & Abigail
It was a very hard decision to part with them, but after opening Salem
Stitchery it just got to be too much work...I'm, hoping to get a new
Blessing to all,
