February Offerings

 
Greetings!
January is finally over! It has been a long, cold, snowy winter so far… My offerings this month are all inspired by Valentine’s Day and the joy of love. At the same time I wanted to make items that don’t need to be put away come the end of February, but would look right at home all year long. I think that I succeeded J
 
 

My first offering this month is Hearts Abloom Table Mat. This mat is based on a design by Need’l Love. It features hand dyed and vintage wools. It measures approximately 10 by 10 inches and is backed with a wonderful coordinating flannel. As with all of my creations, it is completely hand stitched. The feature that really sets this piece apart is that the binding is a wonderful red velvet. The combination of textures of wool and velvet look so rich and striking together.
Hearts Abloom Table Mat is offered at $40 plus shipping.

 
My next offering is a Winding Vine Designs original. Heart and Hand Windowsill Runner is made with all antique materials – tickings, wool, coverlets, and mother of pearl buttons. It measures approximately 4 by 18 inches and would look great on a windowsill, bookcase or just about anywhere. It is completely hand sewn and is backed with another antique blue ticking. The edges are finished with a blanket stitch of perle cotton.
 
 
“Hands to work, hearts to God”
“Hand and Heart shall never part. When this you see remember me.”
All these lovely thoughts went through my head as I worked on this original design. I had to include pieces of my absolute favorite antique ticking for the two large hearts.
~*Sold. Thank you ever so much!*~


If you are interested in purchasing anything, just send me an email at pgagliardi9@hotmail.com . I can send a PayPal invoice or I also accept checks and money orders. I will respond to emails in the order received. If you would like additional information and/or photos, just send me an email as well…
 
I just had to share a few of the items that sold already:

 

Antique Heart Pinkeeps are a Winding Vine Design Original and feature all antique materials – a wonderful red and brown coverlet and cream linsey-woolsey heart. The large pinkeep is backed with antique muslin while the smaller pinkeep is backed with the same antique coverlet. They are completely hand stitched and filled with crushed walnut shells for weight and to keep your needles clean.
~*Both are sold. Thank you ever so much!*~
 
 
Love Blooms Pillow ~ based on a sweet design by Primitive Stitchin’ by Shelly Auen.

 
Birds and Buds Pillow is based on a sweet design by Country Rustic Primitives.

 
But as for me, I will sing about your power.
    Each morning I will sing with joy about your unfailing love.
For you have been my refuge,
    a place of safety when I am in distress.
~Psalm 59:16
 
Blessings, Patti

Your stitchery finishes are some of the best in my book....Just love them to pieces!! I love your tradition of monthly "totes"....I wish I could do the same....however, I so "overdo" holidays that I'm often scrambling to get one taken down before the next is over... EEEK.... But I do share your "Christmas Lights Withdrawal" idea....I started years ago because I just couldn't stand the abrupt withdrawal. Hope you are safe and warm....and out of this next storm's path.
