"Birds of a Feather" Club Update...

Welcome and happy Friday
needlefolk fiends!

My apologizes for the long absence,
too many things going on in my little corner 
of the world!

"Birds of a Feather" Handworke Club Update ~

Finally, a nice quiet moment to share what my
needle and thread stitched together for the  
second club project...

"Together Forever" Pinkeep Drum

Did you know that Swans mate for life,
 and it is said, that when one mate dies the other
dies shortly after from loneliness! 

Let's take a clockwise look around the drum...
To the right of the meandering floral motif is the lady swan,
adorned with a flowing ribbon, followed by a large key, 
and initials.  

Pattern includes a complete alphabet so you can 
 personalize the pinkeep drum.

Next, is the backside...
The back seam comes together and creates
a cluster of three hearts!

Next in the circle...
A second floral motif that compliments the
main floral motif on the front.

We are now back to the front...
To the left of the meandering floral motif 
is the male swan.

lets take a closer look
at the supplies...

"Together Forever" pinkeep drum is stitched on
 32ct Country French "Golden Needle linen.

While on a recent road trip, 
I purchased this lovely  fabric at the
 Country Sampler Shop 
 Spring Green, Wisconsin...a wonderful shop!

A glimpse of the thread palette.

While antiquing a few years ago, 
I founds a large lot of these rare
 vintage Bakelite O~Rings!

I'm so happy to share these
exclusive vintage rings as a club embellishment!

The ribbon is a lovely soft gold tone.


The anticipated ship date is June 10th.

There are still a few memberships available

but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind,
that ye may prove what is that good,
