My small new collection~

Greetings friends and fellow Stitchers!!!!

 

I have the start of a collection of new Patriotics~ These are new stitches that I will combine with others waiting for me at home..... Such fun stitches....

 

Threadwork Primitives "Land that I Love"~ All supplies used are those specified by the designer along with the 36 count Americana Froth linen by Dames of the Needle....

 

Plum Strreet Samplers "Remember Me".... Again, stitched with all specified supplies~

Heartstrings Samplery ~ "O is for Old Glory"... I mounted in a distressed table top clock... These are easy to find... I got mine at Hobby Lobby for 17.99.... Just pop out the clock and insert your stretched stitch...

 

I'm enjoying this vinyette of Patriotic pretties.....

 

Hoping everyone is enjoying their weekend~

A most Patriotic picture walk......

What an absolutely glorious day this has been! Our temps were mild with a light breeze...I hope it's been nice where you are.....

I'm humbled and and amazed at the response I've received for my Summer Giveaway~ You guys really have been amazing with the over 230 blogpost comments and 147 email responses.... Good luck to each of you as I'll be drawing a name tomorrow and posting the winner of a few Carolina Stitcher goodies....

Tonight I'd like to share a few recent Patriotic and Americana themed finishes I've worked up for customers.... Our country is reeling from recent acts of violence, so my patriotism and pride was poured into each of these finishes as a way of dealing with these awful tragedies...
Lady Liberty~ A club design offered through Dyeing to Stitch~
She proudly holds the American flag~


Yes.... Good things come in pairs~ Finishing these simultaneously was fun~

I have to say the directions for finishing these pin drums were excellent!

They have both received back to their rightful owners to enjoy this upcoming 4th of July~


Liberty by Threadwork Primitives .... This ditty bag was made to hang on a door filled with vintage flags or the like.....

I added a few Carolina Stitcher details for good measure...

Fully lined with piped edges.... Hand stitched details~
Sweet Land by Heartstrings Samplery.... A classic pin pillow filled with crushed walnut shells for additional weight~
Littlehouse Needleworks.... This little pillows screams Patriotc, doesn't it? It's vibrant and very classic.


As you all know, I love layers!

Long may She Wave~ With My Needle Designs....

There is a lot of detail work that goes into this Needlebook.... A true labor of love~

Ellen Chester is famous for her incredible teaching pieces.... I marvel at her talent~





so, that's it for now.... I will be back tomorrow and I hope you'll all join me~

Many blessings....

Faye

A picture walk & more info..... Like a giveaway!

Good Sunday morning friends!!!

Wow! Thanks to everyone who have been emailing me about my recent move... Happily, I'm still in

Southern Pines NC.... I'm settled in and looking forward to my summer break from my First Graders~

 

For those of you who may have not found my new email, just click under my photo where it says "View my complete profile"... Then you will see another photo of me... Click on the word "email" and you can then email me at my new email. Sorry for the confusion. Or you can make note that's it's

fayeriggsbee at gmail dot com

 

I have had requests to show a close up of these nice metal end caps you use on wool strawberries..

They are 1 new 1.25 " sizes... You'd be pleased to use these as accessory pieces... 2/5.00 plus postage~
 
I have also been continuing to make those serviceable Carolina Stitcher Sleeping Bags for those of you who have your projects on stretcher bars and want something nice to slide you project inside...

Drawstring top.... Fully lined.... You specify the deminsions you need~ Each is custom made~

Several ladies have purchased a coordinating project roll so they can slide their protected smaller stitch project inside and have all they need....

 

Additionally, I have been rolling out 12" and 19" project rolls....

 

Coordinated Carolina Stitcher project bag with project roll....

I can accommodate your color requests....Or, you can mail me your fabric....

 
12" project rolls are 28.00; 19" project rolls are 34.00...plus postage~
 

 

After much encouragement from others, I am now sewing a small Carolina Stitcher tab in the side seam of the project bags~ It feels good to put my name on my products...

 

Interestingly, the 7 X 9" accessory size bags have become very popular also... They are great for stitch group gifts and for those of you going to retreats and gatherings, they make a nice thank you gifts....

 

I've enjoyed your visit with me this morning.... I'd like to announce a Summer Giveway to commemorate me making my 100th 12" Project Roll.... When I sewed it up this past week, I sat it aside to use as a giveaway item... So if you'd like to be the recipient of this goodie (and a few more CS items), please leave a comment on this blogpost and I'll draw a name on next Sunday~

This is me on my last day of school last week~ lol.....Can you see my eyes dancing with glee??

 

Much love,

 

Faye

Today's picture walk....

Greetings all!!!!

Yesterday was the last day with my wonderful First Graders.... A bitter sweet feeling I experience each year as I cut them loose and let them fly.... Lots of hugs and a few tears were experienced today..... I know they are ready, but still they are like my own children..

 

A few recent finishes have been created in my craft room.... Here are some that I can share... There a few that are held as secrets for upcoming retreat gifts....

Lizzie Kate
 

A Apretoric collection~

You know I love layers of fabrics....
 

 

Here is a La-D-Da design that I was asked to replicate a previous finish.
 

Needlebook....

 

Another beautifully stitched and embellished Shepherd's Bush stocking....
Fully lined....
 

 

And, I think I made a record number of project rolls this past month... 12" size has became a very popular size for ornaments and smaller stitches....
 
 

I love making them, especially knowing they are helping others protect their linen from stains and more wrinkles~

ornaments have began coming in....

And, back by popular demand, I now stock metal end caps for your wool strawberries... Silver tone and bronze tone... They have a nice weight and are priced at 2/5.00.... Please email me if you're interested.... My new email address is listed at the top of my blog...

 

And, as if times aren't busy enough right now, I have downsized and moved to a new a condo.... It's perfect for me and allows me to continue my Carolina Stitcher finishing business nicely... Again, my new email is listed at the top of my header..... Please email me for my new mailing address~

 

Stay safe, happy and stitching friends!

Always,

Faye
