I’m sorry that I missed having an update last month – summer and vacations took up too much of my time :)
But I am back with end of summer/start of autumn offerings. My indian corn in my garden is getting close to harvest time and so inspired this month’s offerings…
My first offering is “Crows in the Corn” Thread Board. Based on a design by Primitive Stitchin’ by Shelly Auen, it is accentuated with a brushed cotton plaid and a beaded trim reminiscent of corn kernels. This piece is both lovely to display and useful. I added mother of pearl rings for holding threads on one side.
On the back I included a hand-dyed wool heart pocket for embroidery scissors (not included). There is also a wool crow needle and pin keep. It has a base of mat board, so that it is stiff and can be propped up on a shelf or table. It measures approximately 4.5 inches by 6.5 inches (not including the rings) and is completely handsewn.
“Crows in the Corn” Thread Board is sold. Thank you ever so much!
I’ve also created a “Crows in the Corn” pinkeep pillow. This one of a kind pillow started with a cross stitch design by Our Pioneer Homestead. I then added a wool crow and pins that looked like kernels of corn. It measures approximately 4.5 inches by 7.5 inches and is completely handsewn. On the back I included a hand-dyed wool heart pocket for embroidery scissors (not included) and a wool crow needle and pin keep.

My final offering are Pumpkin Pie Pinkeeps ~ a Winding Vine Designs original.
These wee velvet pumpkins are mounted in primitive antique tart tins. I found these sweet tins while antiquing on vacation in the north woods and knew exactly what I wanted to do with them :) They are sweet and tiny and measure approximately 3.5 inches across and feature real pumpkin stems. Height varies based on the stem.
