Sunflower Season

It is sunflower season here on Winding Vine. The goldfinches have returned and are happily eating the seeds on the smaller sunflowers and coneflowers, too. Their happy songs and bright yellow plumage always make me smile J

My first offering is Ladybug Pincushions. Based on a Plays with Wool design, they measure approximately 4 inches across by 2 inches high. Each ladybug features a different hand dyed red wool, black vintage snaps for spots and tiny black glass seed beads for antennae. They are backed with a soft coordinating flannel and an appliqued wool heart. They look so sweet grouped with the Vintage Sunflower Pincushions in an old wooden bowl.
Ladybug pincushions are offered at $18 each plus shipping.
~*One available.*~
Please email me at to purchase.

My original Vintage Sunflower Pincushions were such a hit last year that I had to make a few more. Made with all vintage materials, they feature a vintage brown velvet seed head, golden yellow petals made from a wool blanket that I always slept under at Grandma’s, and a green army blanket wool bract. They are filled with crushed walnut shells for weight and measure approximately 6 inches across and 2 inches high.
Vintage Sunflower Pincushions are offered at $18 each plus shipping.
~*Sold. Thank you ever so much!*~
Please email me at to purchase. 

My final offering is Primitive Sunflower Pillow. Based on a design by Primitive Gatherings, it features all Primitive Gatherings hand-dyed wools. It is backed with a soft flannel and measures 7.5 by 9.5 inches.
Primitive Sunflower Pillow is offered at $36 plus shipping.
~*Sold. Thank you ever so much!*~
If you are interested in purchasing anything or have any questions, just send me an email at . I can send a paypal invoice or I also accept checks and money orders.

Wishing you sunny days filled with sunflowers in the waning days of summer.
Blessings, Patti
"All human life on the earth is like grass,
    and all human glory is like a flower in a field.
The grass dries up and its flower falls off,
       but the Lord’s word endures forever."

Really like the sunflowers! I wish I could accomplish as much as you do. I just seem to only be able to go in spells.
