Bee Skep Cross Stitch Pinkeep

This linen pinkeep offered today
measures 4-3/4" x 7-1/2" I stitched
this on aged linen, one thread over two
 with conventional cotton threads in
soft summer shades and 
filled it with snippets for a 
olde feel and heft. 

I have added aged rickrack and a rusty
bell to the bottom  It is backed with
green wool.

Prim Folk Flower Hornbook

Measuring 6-3/4" wide x 7" high, this
primitive hornbook was worked with
Valdani hand over-dyed threads. 
It is a design adaptation from 
Notforgotten Farm.  

The wood hornbook is a reclaimed 
piece from a drawer and has the
original detail at the bottom from
the drawer construction.

Rusty wire and bells are wound
around the top.

Trio of Early Farm Life - Bowl Fillers

This set of three bowl fillers individually
measure 3-3/4" x 4-1/4".  They are a
design from The Blue Attic
stitched with conventional and over-dyed 
one thread over two on over-dyed linen. 

They are edge whip stitched, very 
lightly filled for somewhat flat appearance 
and backed with tone on tone brown cotton.

Two Crows Scalloped Pinkeep

Another unique design by With Thy
Needle and Thread, this pinkeep
measures 8-1/2" x 5" (to the top of
the scallop) .  I stitched this with
conventional and over-dyed 
threads on heavily aged linen
and snipped filled it.  Stitching
is one thread over two, gives it
a nice old prim look.  

It is backed with a subdued tone
on tone cotton.  I have added
a rusty safety pin and rusty look key 
on the front.

Emma's Work Drum Pinkeep

This linen drum is a design from With Thy
Needle and Thread and measures 6" high x 4" wide. 
The drum is stitched with conventional 
threads in muted shades on linen and 
tightly filled.   

Small cross stitches accent the top, bottom 
and back seam area.  There are two 
strawberries made of aged velour which 
have been sanded to replicate age.  
They have homespun caps 
and floss stems.
