Wynter Peacocks and the Ladies Prim Society....

....greetings this fine Sunday morning..
Hello fellow stitchers....good morning!!!!!
I wanted to share a recent stitch and finish.... For myself... Dyeing to Stitch shop in Virginia is hosting the Ladies Prim Society in 2013.....well, those of you know me, knew if it involved "prims", it caught my ear.... The wonderfully talented Nan Lewis of Threadwork Primitives designed the first design of several to be released this year....Blackbird Designs will be the other contributing designer... Win-Win!!!
(Please click photo for the best look....)




....a sewing pouch with every single item needed for the finish included..... I did distress my linen once done.... Isn't it darling??




...button and nice hemp provided.... Instructions included...




...nice brown wool felt to blanket stitch for pins and needles...check out the beautiful lining fabric! ...all included...




..here it is laying flat.... And, yes, I had to put a little "carolinastitcher" uniqueness on the backside of my sewing pouch...




..it started out with stitching the year on the back....and then this prim wool penny flower developed.....




Nan even provides instructions for stitching the sides together...a uniquely prim touch!
For those Prim Ladies out there, stitch and finish this nice piece... I plan on actually using mine to hold needle packs... And for any of you who are a tad bit intimidated with the finishing part, don't be! Truly easy.... And as always, I'm here to help you!
....hoping everyone's Sunday is filled with friends, family, faith and fun...




Blessings,
Faye

Pat Matejcek said...

I love it Faye. I haven't started mine yet. Can't wait for the BBD one. which should be up next...

Jackie said...

Beautiful! I love how you've made it your own. I agree with you that your readers shouldn't be afraid to finish such a project themselves. I haven't done a lot of my own finishing but one thing I've learned is that prim pieces are very forgiving.

Melissa said...

Gorgeous-ness itself, Faye!

Catherine said...

Love! When I stitch mine, I might just send it to you to finish for all of your special touches!!!

Christine said...

Gorgeous finish, Faye! I love the added touch and date on the back. I'm almost done and might steal that idea! :0)

Kimmie said...

Too cute!!!!!

Karen said...

How pretty... love your finish. Another great design from Nan as always.

happy stitching....

Nan ~ Threadwork Primitives said...

It's really wonderful Faye and I love the staining and the added touches you gave it to make it your own. I'm so happy you joined the Ladies Prim and love seeing everything you stitch. I am also very touched by your heart felt words my friend. Hugs, Nan

Carolyn NC said...

Very pretty, Faye - Nice little extra touches.

Anna van Schurman said...

Very pretty. You do such wonderful work! Glad you get to keep this lovely piece for yourself.

HollyXSing said...

Hey, Faye! I am so glad to see you completed your Ladies Prim Piece from Nan Lewis! She is a looker!

It appears your enjoyed stitching her up as much as I did!

Lovely!

Anne said...

What a gorgeous prim pocket Faye!! I love all the little details and the lining is so beautiful!

Wendy said...

Beautiful! Mine's almost done. I'll be glad to get it finished and watch for the next kit.

Kathy said...

What a wonderful finish! Love the wool appliqué on the back. I've got mine stitched but haven't tackled the finishing yet. I'm guessing you did something really clever with the members tag. Wish I had you eye for detail and ideas!

Myra said...

It looks great Faye and your finishing touches are wonderful. Do tell - what did you use to distress it?

Kath said...

Yours turned out so pretty. I've not started mine yet...in the middle of a current project and want to finish it first. After seeing yours all stitched up it makes me NOT want to wait but to start it right away. Is it truly possible to have too many wips going at one time?? haha I also love the extra special touches you added to the back. It's a great way to personalize your pouch.

Beth said...

So pretty Faye - what a charming creation you have once again made.

Deborah said...

Beautiful finish!

Nicola said...

This is the sweetest pouch and your finishing is devine! I love how you made it "yours" with the addition of the wool flower penny. Perfect!

Beautiful finish Faye!

Babs in Alabama said...

love it Faye, and your own personal touches always inspire.

Carol said...

That is so, so special, Faye--and your little wool flower penny makes it all the more so :)

ShelleyGA said...

I'm a Prim Lady as well. Haven't started mine. Did you use the threads in the project they sent or changed them up? Mine looks like it's all browns but your's looks blues. Just wondering....haven't started as I'm working on the SamSarah Perpetual Calendar and that takes tons of time.

Mouse said...

ohhhh very pretty and love your finishing touches :) love mouse xxxxx
