Introducing Rabbit Hole Farm

Hope you can see all the sides of this cute scissor holder. It was stitched on 30 count Tin Roof by Weeks dye Works with threads from Weeks Dye Works and The Gentle Art. As with all my charts finishing instructions are included. There will be a few more pieces with the scissor holder....they are in the birthing process. Charts are going to Nashua, NH for a debut at Celebrations of Needlework. The rest of the charts will be sent to Hoffman and Norden for your local needlework shop to order. Have a wonderful day! I am off to finishing packing and getting my orders out the door..... Ebeth

Almost there! Nashua here I come...

Packing and packing.  I hope it will all fit.  I have all the kits together for the classes...Three Lives, Maritime Sewing Box, Zen Rabbit Purse and Dauphin House Sewing Box.   I have been cutting matte board for days...good thing Dick Blick's is around the corner.  Going back this afternoon to get a few paints and exacto blades to pack.  Printing all the charts and checking the supplies and making sure I have everything for the classes.  I feel like the child from the story-instead of sugar plums dancing around in my head-I have linen, scissors, magnets, buttons, double sided tape and so on. 

I cannot wait to teach my Round Robin.  If I must say so myself it is way too cute!!!!  I redesinged a needle roll to have a hole in the top so it can hold scissors....and of course there is a twist.  We will be playing with walnut stain.  You know me-paint it, stain it or just grunge it up....I will post a picture hopefully be for I leave.  

I also have a new piece that will be posted before I will make it's debut in Nashua.  Rabbit Hole Farm.  I posted a picture on my Facebook a week or so ago while it was in the process of being birthed.  It is desinged to house a pair of Rabbit Scissors that come from Tooltron Scissors.  Way too fun.  This will be a series with some whimsical scenes...but more about that later.

Hope to see you in Nashua, New Hampshire this week!  Travel safe! 

If you are not going I hope you have a great time stitching and a wonderful week.
