November Offerings

I know that many people jump right from Halloween to Christmas in their creating and decorating, but I am a traditionalist. I like to celebrate each month for its own gifts and besides, Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday! A fairly stress-free holiday with one big meal shared with family and friends and a focus on gratefulness and thanksgiving! What could be better?! And so this month’s offerings are inspired by my favorite holiday. 

All of this month’s offerings are based on a single lovely design by Jane L. Way of Mousehole Lane. First is Thankful Thread Board. This piece is both lovely to display and useful. I added amber mother of pearl rings for holding threads on one side. 

On the back I included an orange plaid wool pocket for embroidery scissors (not included) and a brown ribbon tie to keep them safe and secure. There is also a plaid wool needle and pin patch.

The front is complimented by a great pumpkin vine calico and a canvas ribbon with wooden buttons. It has a base of thin mat board, so that it is stiff and can be propped up on a shelf or table. It measures approximately 5 inches by 7 1/2 inches (not including the rings) and is completely handsewn.

I’ve continued making pinch pockets this month as well – from the same design as the thread board. These pinch pockets are perfect for a small spool of thread, a small pair of embroidery scissors, and even a few other notions. Each measures approximately 4 inches across and 3 inches tall. Items are stored safely inside until you gently press the two corners together to open. The pinch pocket is backed with the same pumpkin vine calico as is featured on the thread board and is lined with the same brown tweedy wool. As with all of my offerings, it is completely handsewn.
