Welcome 1.1.11!

It's January 1st and time for another update on TDIPT Mercantile!
You can view my offerings here.

"I found that snowflakes were masterpieces of design. No one design was
ever repeated. When a snowflake melted... just that much beauty was gone,
without leaving any record behind."
-Wilson A. Bentley
Snowflake Bentley and his innovative microscopic photographs of snowflakes were my inspiration this month.

I started with a vintage wool scarf and appliqued ivory wool snowflakes on it.

It can be used as a table runner or be worn as a scarf.

I also created another windowsill pillow based on a pattern by The Stitcherhood.
Please be sure to take a peek at all the lovely offerings at TDIPT Mercantile.

Did you enjoy your New Years Eve? We went to dinner with our friends then came back to our house and played "Imagine If" - we laughed until we cried - I love those kind of games - and those kind of friends ;)
They brought us these darling little bowls - aren't they just perfect? I just love them!!!
It is feeling more like winter in Chicago today - yesterday it was 59, today it is 29.
I think that I'll start taking down the Christmas decorations today... and putting up a few winter/snowflake decorations.
Wishing you all a Blessed 2011!
Blessings, Patti
