Today has been a very busy & productive day!
I even found time to list some of
the new goodies that arrived a couple of days ago.
I will share with you the new needle minders that I've added
to my Etsy Shoppe. Plus, I also added the scissor stands that I
~ Running Hare ~
~ Sheep at Night ~
~ Folkart Willow ~
~ Saltbox Hill ~
These sweet needle minders give such a lovely
extra touch to make stitching even
more enjoyable than it already
For those of you who may already be a passionate collector
or if your thinking you might enjoy becoming a
collector ~ here are three very highly
recommended reference books
from my personal
~ Book #1 ~ Front Cover ~
Antique Needlework Tools & Embroideries by
Nerylla Taunton. This is a absolutely beautiful 220 page
hard cover book. Full of incredible color photos.
~ Back Cover~
These books are not only full of beautiful photos, they
also include so much history and interesting
fact & tips for the needlewoman at heart ~♥~
~ Book #2 ~ Front Cover ~
Needlework Tools & Accessories ~ A Dutch Tradition by
Kay Sullivan. This book contains 224 pages and
is also hard cover.
~ Back Cover ~
I used to go antiquing nearly every weekend to find
my goodies, but now with Ebay & Etsy they have
opened new doors to gaining access to really
rare & hard to find items that I would
never have found locally :)
~ Book #3 ~ Front Cover ~
The Story of Antique Needlework Tools by
Bridget McConnel. This book even includes a price guide,
is hard cover with 247 pages.
~ Back Cover ~
These are all wonderful picture books to have fun just
looking at, dreaming about or filling yourself
with great knowledge!
These three book that I have featured here today
may be a little harder to find....but not impossible with
the help from the internet! Also, these three are
bigger books than the ones I featured yesterday and
will be a bit higher in price.
Here is a little sampler that I did years ago ~
If I remember correctly, this was a complimentary chart from
The Heart's Content ~ Greenbay, Wisconsin.
I think it was titled "Harvey"
I stitched my over one thread....so it's not very big
about 1.5" W by 2.5" H.
Today I leave you with this peaceful pasture scene.
The grass is so bright & green.....I love the
spring time of year!
I have some nearby neighbors who have already sheared
their sheep for spring.
Have a lovely day....until tomorrow
