New Patterns are ready

~Four & Twenty Blackbirds Pocket Roll~

Love this design. The colors and textures are perfect for Autumn.
And today is the perfect day to list them. It's cool and crisp here this morning and the leaves are swirling around on the porch.

I used all hand dyed linen and wools for this piece....yummy.
And I finally figured out a way to age them without the threat of running dye.
It came to me one night as I was just falling asleep and I couldn't wait to get up the next morning and give it a try.
The hand dyed linens are awesome on their own but you know me....I gotta dirty them up : )

On the outside I used 2 different hand dyed wools....the rusty brown has a great texture to it.

And you know I had to finish all the seams with tiny little X's.

Folded up and tied closed it's about the size of a wallet.

And on the back is a sweet little pinkeep made from a patch of homespun.

And the Strawberry Emery is made from scraps of wool and homespun to match the Pocket Roll.

~Guided by Virtue Sewing Purse~

This was a really fun design to stitch. I've wanted to stitch a ship for so long but I just couldn't figure out how to go about it. Finally one day I just sat down and went for it and it took on a life of it's own.

The urns frame the ship nicely and add a little whimsy to the design.

It's hard to tell in he picture but the ~Let Virtue Be A Guide to Thee~ is framed in the best pale blueish green floss. And I paired it with the bittersweet floss in the makes my heart happy : )

Around the top of the purse I've added scalloped black wool and I've finished all the seams with that wonderful blueish green floss.

The back of the purse is awesome hand dyes wool. And I added a little homespun pocket that's topped with black scalloped wool. It's a nice little place to stash your scissors and notions...or your cell phone so you don't have to dig for it like I'm always doing.

The strap is nice and long so it can be worn across your body or knot it so it can be thrown over your shoulder.
I pieced together linen, homespun and wool for some nice texture in the strap.

The patterns are available on my website, on eBay or just email me if you're interested.

Have a wonderful weekend my stitching friends

Stacy, these are beautiful pieces. I love how they look old and have such an antique style to them, too. I want to try more embroidery stitching in my bears; you're inspiring me to think outside the box.

I love the first design and that wool is lovely. Are you going to share your bedtime epiphany on staining but not risking the colors running? I can't tell you how many times that's happened to me.
