January Offerings...

This day, Time winds th’ exhausted chain,
To run the twelvemonth’s length again…

Sweet Heart Pinkeep




A tiny sweetheart pincushion made from old quilt and velvet scraps.  This one is very worn with lots of cotton batting showing through the fabric.  Her head is an old c. 1860s German bisque doll head that was unglazed/unpainted.  I painted and aged it to look sweet and  old.  Backed with a bit of vintage cinnamon velvet.  She measures a wee 3.5"w x 3"h and comes with the old pins tucked in.  Only one!

Early Brown Pincushions



                   
Two wonderful old pincushions in early brown fabrics.  The larger measures 6.5" square and is backed with lovely black silk. Notice the muted, red French knot detailing and green silk hanger.  The smaller measures 5" square and is constructed of old quilt material on both sides.  Wonderfully worn velvets on both of these pincushions.

Antique Sampler: Eliza South 1822





                 
(Click on any of the images for a larger view!)

Eliza South finished her sampler on July 26, 1822.  The top portion contains rows of alphabets and numbers separated by a variety of horizontal bands. Miss Eliza filled the bottom with birds, trees, flowers, and a sweet verse from Proverbs 22:2.  Stitched entirely with brown cotton threads utilizing cross, Algerian eyelet, and four-sided stitch. The linen is in sound condition.  There is some staining by the verse as well as a very, very faint pink mark in the second row between the & and 1 (so faint I couldn't even capture it on camera.  It measures 17"h x 12.5"w and is unframed.  I have not done any research on Eliza.  This sampler has never been reproduced.
