~ Sitting & Stitching a Spell ~

~ Hello Friends & Folk ~

 it is hotter than the hinges of Hell here today!
... our chickens are panting and the dogs 
well, they are trying to find the zippers to their fur-suits to take them off!

thankfully,
the air conditioning has been a relief indoors ~
and so I've been working on this little stitch
wanting to make a companion piece to my little
 Rest Thy Scissors pattern & box;


I wanted to use some of my own fabric that I designed, 'candle light walk' 
{available HERE}
love it!!


stuffed it with some of Peter's organic sawdust,
and added Dames of the Needle's fabulous mini pom-pom trim in 'Colonial Tea' 


here is the finished back, 
with fussy-cut fabric to showcase my candle light witch, and the trim all stitched on;

and here is what Peter made for it ~

thee sweetest little spooky pincushion chair 
to match my Rest Thy Scissors box!

teensy-tiny little spool feet!

I am working on more seasonal designs for this little chair, so it can stay out and be YOUR companion all the year through ~

the linen I used is 32ct Weekd Dye Works "Tin Roof"
threads used: 
Weeks Dye Works: Pamlico, Kohl & Tin Roof 
Gentle Art Threads: Sarsaparilla
2 threads over 2 strands of linen
stitch count: 42w x 37h

PDF / paper pattern & finished pincushion chair
will be available soon ;)

Blessings from the Farm

  7. So strange that earlier today I was looking at your Spoonflower designer materials and Candlelight Walk was my absolute favorite! Did you "rough up" the material a bit to give it that soft, aged look? What is "fussy-cut fabric?" The trim is so delightful, and that pincushion-looks-tombstony chair is adorable...I may have to make one of these. So creative, original.
