Here is the July/August September 2014
Little Stitches Handwork Club model all finished up!
"Patriotic Fan Pinkeep"
|© 2014 L. Brechlin for Notforgotten Farm/LSHC|
I wanted to do something a little different,
...but useful for this quarter's club project ~
I love how it turned out ~
what do you think??
|back is covered in red plaid wool|
the model is stitched onto my 30ct hand dyed Old Farmhouse Linen
using 1 strand of floss over 2 threads of linen (15ct)
the finished size of this project measures approx:
6-3/4" x 5-1/4"
|I added new & old white headed pins along the top of the fan's edge…|
some larger than others ;)
I also added a little thread ring to the bottom
...and tied on a scrap of old ribbon ~
|"...i can hold your pins & threads too!"|
~ the flag/heart represents our love for our country
~ the vines represent longevity
~ the berries represent abundance
~ and the crown represents freedom of religion
Oh, and it also serves the purpose of actually being used as a little fan ~
when those 'power surges' (hot flashes) strike!!!
|simple, needful thing ~|
So, the kits are being put-together ~
and each kit will include:
*size cut of 30ct linen needed for project
*all threads to finish project
*12" length of ribbon
kit does NOT include:
Members kits will begin shipping this week ~
again, please pardon my delay in shipping kits this month ;)
