Peace and Plenty Stitchery

Peace and Plenty stitchery, a design from
Stitches of Olde is a linen sampler
fastened to an old vintage repurposed
cutting board.  I stitched the sampler
with conventional and over-dyed
threads on linen and tacked it to
the board. 

The top has rusty wire, bells and
jute wound onto it.  Overall, the board
measures 7" wide x 14" high x 1/2" thick.
The stitchery measures 5-1/2" x 7-1/4".  

The board was purchased at a local 
antique shop and has been antiqued to
produce a time worn prim look.

Kindly asking $17 plus travel
fare via USPS Priority Mail.   
If interested, please email me your
zip code for accurate postage. 

Two Crows Pinkeep

Two crows is a cross stitch design by
Stacy Nash which I worked with 
hand over-dyed and conventional threads,
one thread over two.  

It measures 7" x 6-1/4" and is snippet
filled.  I have secured a band of cotton
cluny lace, an assortment of buttons
and a rusty heart to the pinkeep.

It is backed with a black tone cotton

Lady Bug Needle Punch Hornbook

This prim hornbook representation is cute as a bug.

It measures 6-3/4" x 5-1/2" and is worked
with Valdani hand over-dyed threads.

I have hand cut the wood hornbook from
repurposed wood, thickness is 1/2".  
It is stained, and has replicated wear
areas.  An assortment of buttons is
strung on rusty wire and the stitchery
is edged with black boucle yarn.

Squeak and Chippy Autumn Hanger

Squeak and Chippy cupboard hanger
measures 6-1/2" x 4-1/2" and is stitched 
with conventional threads on over-
dyed and aged linen.  

It is snippet filled with edge overcast
stitching and has a rusty wire and star
attached.  The hanger adds an additional 3" in height.  
It is backed with tan wool that matches the linen color.
