It's Coming!

"Harvest Thyme" stitchery for Prims Magazine

I am offering my 'Harvest Thyme" stitchery that was designed and stitched especially for the Fall 2011 issue of "Prims Magazine". For this piece I stitched a huge pumpkin in various orange shades along with beautiful Autumn leaves, sunflowers, bittersweet branches and a crescent moon. I did my stitching on coffee dyed osnaburg. I used a large antique brown frame that measures 12 1/2" wide x 15" long. There is glass and a sawtooth hanger. It will come signed and dated 4/2011 by me for Prims Magazine.
**SOLD** Thank You!

Something Special...

I have had my 1st stitchery published in the 2011 Fall issue of Prims Magazine. I am a very happy girl, it was always a dream that Sue and I had hoped for some day. My stitchery is featured along with other artwork from the Tdipt Mercantile Group, To Dwell in Primitve Thymes. There is a 10 page spread with a wonderful article written by our own Karen Brady Hammontree of Brady Bear Studio's. Karen, as well as some of the other girls who she collabrated this article with lovingly dedicated the article to my sister Sue Zaliks memory. This has touched me deeply and I thank them from the bottom of my heart. Prims magazine will also be featuring the remaining artists in their 2012 January issue. You can view the other 9 pages on the Tdipt blog. The Prims Magazine is available for purchase on line, at Barnes and Noble and your art/craft stores.

~Parson Brown Sled Co.~Stitchery

For some reason my picture disappeared within the last hour for "Parson Brown". Blogger was not cooperating earlier today, so they must be having troubles. I haven't been able to get the picture back on yet either. I'll try later but regardless it has "SOLD" already.

Well it is on to another stitching season for me already! I am offering my "Parson Brown Sled Co." design that I stitched on osnaburg. It features Parson Brown the snowman, from that old Christmas song, "Winter Wonderland". He has with him his olde red sled. After stitching I dyed this piece with coffee and the mounted it in this old white antique frame with its ornate corners. It measures 9 3/4"wide x 7 3/4" long. There is glass and a sawtooth for hanging. It is still small enough to display on a shelf. It will come signed, dated and copyright 2011.
Cost is $38 which includes Priority shipping

~Winter Wools~ Needlepunch Nesting box

This needle punch was designed and punched by me on weavers cloth with Valdani and dmc threads. I punched a pair of mittens with some snowflakes on a black background. I finished off the edge with a black cording and then mounted the piece to the lid of the box with an acid free adhesive spray. I painted the paper mache box black and then stenciled on some scattered snowflakes. This box would look great sitting on table near your front door to store some of your mittens and gloves in. The box measures 10" in diameter and is 5" high. It will be signed, dated and copyright 2011 on the inside of the box lid.
