I started a new project this week and so far I got the base done. It is a pattern by Primitive Blessings called Flower Garden. I can only do basic stitches and have no desire to learn something new right now, so I went with a simple blanket stitch. I used a black linen to attach them to and next I will cut out the flowers and start adding those. The colors in the photo are off, except for the blacks, everything else is darker than it appears, including the stitching, so it blends in nicely, but I lightened it up so you could see the patterns in the wool.
My sister rented a house on Squam lake in New Hampshire and invited us and I am very excited about going. I don't need to spend money since it is paid for but I would like some spending money just in case so I will be selling off a few things. I have a lot of books and things that I never use and here is a sampling of some things I have. If you are interested and want to make an offer, I will be happy to accept offers. If you are looking for any books or supplies, I might have them, so ask away.
I am not sure about selling this way, but thought I would try it and see how it goes. I will add sold to any item that is gone. I will leave the sale open until saturday, at which time I will be listing on ebay.
Sorry but US sales only.
This punch needle is one I made as a sample for my pattern. It is 5 1/2" x 6 1/4". The edging is jute that has been hand sewn. It is the perfect piece to go with your summer groupings. This piece has been aged with walnut ink, so it will fit in with primitive and antique decor.
120.00 or Best Offer!
I also have rug hooking books, so if there are any on your list, you can email me with your request and I will check my shelves. I do have a few dye books, as well. These books are in good condition, slight wear from shelving but I never really used them, just looked at them when I got them.
A set of books that is perfect for the beginning hooker.
50.00 or Best Offer!
Maryann Lincoln's Dye Book, out of print.
80.00 or Best Offer!
Another item that I never used. I tend to dye like I cook, a little of this and that;)
This is great for those who want to do their own dying by using primary colors to make a multitude of colors and shades, swatches included.

And..... What was it? It was a horseshoe crab, did you see his little eye in the photo? Here here is with all his little hitchhikers. The winner of the drawing is Barbara of Cat Patches! Congratulations Barbara! Email me with your choice of pattern and I will send it right to you. Since our vacation is at the end of the month and I might only have phone access, I will continue the weekly pattern giveaway each week and a final giveaway at the end of the month. Thank you all for your fun guesses and visiting my blog.
