PNPS Magazine



Here is my christmas contribution to the PNPS 2019 Magazine.  As usual I think bigger than I should-laughing.  I made this ornament so that magnets are finished inside the ornament so that the ornament can be switched out from the display.  For the shoot for the magazine it was way to small to show the hanging board with the metal clip board attached.  So here it is far away and up close.  I am going to hang mine as a door hanger inside my family area.  This can be hung on the wall or you can skip the board and make it as an ornament and add a hanger.  You can also skip adding the magnets if you are not going to attach the ornament to the metal clip board.  

It was an honor to once again to be asked to submit to the PNPS magazine.  They are always kind and put up with my lack of computer skills and other seemingly disasterous life situations that interfere with me being an adult.  Trust me if any of you follow me you know I have earnestly tried to hand in my adult license, but they will not revoke it.....but revoking it means I would be either on the other side of the grass or in one of those land locked cruise ships-and I am not ready for either of those.

Well, off to maybe try my hand at another live video......let's see how this works out....

Thank you again for all your support.  Hugs Ebeth

It seems no matter how hard your try.....well either my followers have purchased the chart and not stitched it. Or just are fearless and went off road and did what they wanted to-no one picked up the mistake till today....on the Swan with Flowers chart X
symbol on the chart does not have a thread listed. It is Tin Bucket by The Gentle Art using one strand in Cross Stitch over two linen threads. I am grateful that a stitcher asked and I have correct the problem for furture charts....Sorry for not finding this sooner. Hugs Ebeth

Back again-correction on chart too.....

New glass listings and more

Busy listing new finds.  Took a mini break from dyeing and found new items for Etsy.

Here are a few items-for you to check out.  More listings today....will be finishing new designs.  Work never stops for the fly by nigh designers.... laughing.




Great patina metal box-unlimited potential to create a storage or sewing box.


Inside-a new lining with this can be a great accessory to your stitching items.


Rare oval milk glass vase with rare oval frog.  


Unique Top Hat milk glass containter with vintage glass frog.


Another unique Kings Crown compote containter with glass frog.  Bottom does have a small imperfections, but does not detract from the unique glass frog holder.

All these items are listed on my Etsy-keep an eye out for more listings.

Working during Chaos

Well-if you have been following me on Facebook-you know Easter Friday-Good Friday a repair person did not do their job correctly and caused thousands of dollars of water damage to my home.  It has been since April I have been going through the process of getting the process to restore my home straight.  In the mean time-there have been quite a lot of changes.  I started thinking of them in the Fall of 2018 and it has taken till now to have the time to get going on them.....I found another way to get insurance than working at Starbucks....so no more peopling for the moment.  Isa is settled into life out of university, Miguel only has a couple more semesters and a budding graphic artist-movie title career will be in his future.  So, I am now going to start traveling again.  I will be going to the Needlework Gallery in September-then teaching in October and next Spring.  More info on these events in upcoming posts.  I thought I would share some of the things I have been up to during this mess.  Please check out my Facebook page, I have gotten brave and gone live-yes they are quite a mess with the camera moving all around.  It does show the mess we are living in.  Miguel and I are and the three dogs are in a very, very, very small hotel room.  Did I mention that it was small??????  We have about one to one and hald more weeks in this situation.  Then-fun.  I get to move back into my house.  Right now my furniture is in a pod and my garage......anyway-a new adventure will be coming.

I no longer have anyone staying with me....so I have these three open rooms....and retreat is coming to mind!  I have to get the house back in order, but I will be announcing finishing, dyeing and stitching retreats....keep an eye out for the details.  But, for the moment-here are some pictures of things I have been dyeing and what my home looks like...


Wonderful helper sanding the floors-


Floors before they started sanding Saturday.


The mess in my first floor outside my studio.  We will not even visit my studio at the moment.  What is not in the garage or the pod is in my studio....Well, I did have to store a few things upstairs in the two spare bedrooms.  I have quite a bit of cleaning in the rooms.  Then they will be ready for visitors.


Painting in the first floor bedroom.  It will be great when finished.


Grouping of linen-
Prim Grey, Aged Saffon, Sweeney Red, Brun Lapin


Americana Froth, Americana Froth, Prim Grey, Old Top Hat


Americana Froth, Americana Froth, Mayflower Grey, Mayflower Grey, Rusted Sand, Sweeney Red


Egg Hunt, Dirty Khaki, Rose Colored Glasses velvet

So-one can be productive while breathing in chemicals and sanding, hammering, sawing and more....

I will be posting pictures of the pod and my other mess soon.  Thanks for all the support and I will be posting more soon.  Keep an eye on my Etsy more being listed and created.

Hugs from Ebeth and Caged the Elephant today-tomorrow-who knows....
