I'm a Little Bit Quaker......(110)

A few things to share today; I'll start with my Stroll piece. This was a piece offered by Catherine Theron to needlework guilds. It is called Small Quaker Traveling Sewing Roll and I stitched it in 2014. I used my family's initials and don't think I changed anything up.

I managed to get a little more done on my pre-stitch for Betsy Morgan while watching a double episode of Survivor. Yes, we are Survivor junkies..not sure why this appeals to us so much, but we are often amazed at what outcomes occur and the manipulation/guile versus naivety/gullibility of the players.

Lastly, I'm sharing some finishing I've been working on over the past week or so. It is Black-eyed Susan's Workbox and Smalls by Jackie DuPlessis. This was offered by Jackie on her Facebook page and I stitched it last summer while at the cabin. The shaker box was hand painted around the lid band and is 3 1/2 inches in diameter. I gave the centers of the flowers "black eyes" where Jackie had them gold and found a realistic looking black-eyed susan to put in the bottom of the box. I then put the little label "wrought by" on the underside of the lid. I decided to use the ort container to house a wax beehive--it fit perfectly! The other accessories are a scissor fob, thread holder and bead storage roll. So sweet!

Well, I have a class today with the Virginia Guild of Needlewomen with Patti Nicolosi; she is teaching a bee skep scissor fob, so I'm excited. See you tomorrow!

Thanks for stopping by and your "twisted threads" of friendship!
