Marking Sampler Pinkeep - Little Dog

The pinkeep is a cute design from 
Pineberry Lane measuring 6"x 7". 
I stitched this on aged linen with
conventional threads and whip
stitched the bottom closed with
linen thread.

It is snippet filled and 
edged with a prim overcast stitch.

Vintage Skimmer Punch Needle

While poking around our local
antique shops I found this olde
tin skimmer measuring 5-3/4"x 6". 
It has the primitive look of being 
used many, many times which 
just adds to its charm.  
I stitched the punchneedle
round with Valdani hand over-dyed
threads featuring a bee skep and 
little bee keeping watch over it.

There is rusty wire wound through
the top with a few olde buttons from
my stash.  
Unique and time worn, this skimmer is a
prim reminiscent of years past.

pins in the top and a double button
embellishment sewn on the top
through the bottom.
