Day 4!



 Welcome back to day 4 of new pattern preview days! 

The inspiration for this berry-themed design came from a day in early June, last year.  Dave and I went with our daughter and grandchildren to a berry farm to pick strawberries.  I don't know who had more fun...the kiddos picking strawberries for the very first time, or me just watching the grand-kiddos have fun!  I had my first attempt at home-made strawberry jam....yummy!  I see more strawberry picking days in our future...already looking forward to early June!

Berry Days at Thistle Down Farm has a fun little finish.  I have chose to finish it into a stitching companion.  The needlework is mounted onto a little wooden box that looks like a book!  The "binding" of this book has a little drawer that pulls out...a perfect spot to fill with tapestry needles, scissors, etc.  Along with the box piece, there is also a companion piece for a tiny little needle book.  Fun & functional!  I will be selling the wooden book boxes, as well.

I have always loved antique Quaker samplers...love them, love them, love them!  This piece is my adaptation of a Quaker sampler.  Some motifs are borrowed from my antique samplers and some are my original motifs...a modern-day take on a Quaker sampler.   Quaker Handework is worked in shades of red, browns, golds and brownish-greens...the color palette is scrumptious!   The 2 strands of floss make the stitches look like they are resting on top of the linen, really like it!   I chose to make this a family sampler, stitching our initials randomly among the motifs.  The pattern includes an alphabet chart so that you may personalize the sampler.    A very special "THANK YOU" to Susanna Baker for stitching this piece for me!





See you tomorrow!
With thy Needle & Thread,
Brenda

Brenda, I really love the book box! The colors on the Quaker sampler are fantastic!

Shelly said...

That book box is great. Thanks for the sneak peeks!

Karen said...

A definite order for me! I too love the look of two strands on a higher count fabric so that the each cross stitch causes the thread to make tiny little "pillows" snuggled on top of the linen!

Testimony of financial breakthrough from GOD through the help of Funding Circle Loan INC. (fundingcapitalplc@gmail.com OR Call/Text +14067326622)...

Hi I'am Evelyn Russell resident at 808 NE 19th St Oklahoma City, I am a single mother blessed with 2 daughters. For a while now I have been searching for a genuine loan lender who could help me with a loan as I no longer have a job, all I got were hoodlums who made me trust them and at the end they took my money without giving me any loan, my hope was lost, I got confused and frustrated, it became difficult for my family to feed with a good meal, I never wanted to have anything to do with any loan lending companies on the internet again. Not until I met a Godsent loan lender that changed my life and that of my family Through the help of a fellowship member "a lender with the fear of God in him Mr JASON RAYMOND, he was the man God sent to elevate my family from suffering. At first I thought it wasn’t going to be possible due to my previous experience until I received my loan worth $135,000.00 USD in less then 24hours. So my advise to anyone out there genuinely in need of a loan is to contact Funding Circle Loan INC through this official email:- fundingcapitalplc@gmail.com OR Call/Text +14067326622 and be financial lifted.
