June Offerings...

"And what is so rare as a day in June?
Then, if ever, come perfect days;
Then Heaven tries the earth if it be in tune,
And over it softly her warm ear lays."
~~ James Russell Lowell ~~


Folky Dog Pinkeep


Old sampler motifs were stitched on an old, stained piece of linen to make this folky pinkeep.  Very firmly stuffed with raw wool and backed with a black/cream fabric. It comes with the old pins and needles you see here. I will sign and date this before sending it off.  Measures 5”h x 5.5”w.  Only one!

Framed Linen “Doggie” Bag
  
I’ve worked the same sampler motifs on a piece of old, naturally stained linen and then stitched it into a little bag.  A bit of gauzy cheesecloth is wound ‘round the top of the bag.  The bag lays on a piece of old chocolate brown fabric (complete with holes).  The whole thing is framed under glass in an antique wood frame.  9.25”h x 5.5”w.  Paper dust cover on back and old wire for hanging.   Only one!

Antique Sampler: Betsy Thomas 1798


The perfect sampler for the lover of early needlework!  Betsy Thomas finished her work in 1798 at the age of 13.  Completed in cross and satin stitch browns, blacks, and the prettiest shade of blue.  The sampler was folded over in the center many years ago to hide a hole.  The sampler is stitched to a cotton backing the same color as the linen which effectively hides a hole in the lower right corner.

Framed under glass in a wonderful frame (quite possibly cherry) with all four corner blocks intact.  Paper dust cover on back.  Sawtooth hanger.  Just a wonderful, early sampler that has not been reproduced!!

Overall measurements (including frame): 12.25”h x 10.25”w.
