Hope you like the variation!

Have I talked about my new color-probably-but here it is-You know I am a land locked Mermaid-right????  Well, Mermaid's Firewood is up my alley.  I love this color-it is brown, greyish and a hint of pink and yellow at times.  It looks like worn driftwood to me-hence-Mermaid's Firewood-what else would a proper Mermaid use for a lovely evening bon fire while sitting on a coastal shoreline surveying their domain....

Plus!!!!!!  You cannot have Mermaid's linen without Pom Pom and Crinkle Ribbon to go with it....what stylish Mermaid would be without accessories....More coming.

Oh-I will be showing our class with Primitive Hare in October 2022-there may be an opening if you are interested. 

Hugs and thank you for your support.  Ebeth

Yes! I am teaching in Texas-Texan Style Tray Topper

 AFter a very different and interesting year.  Not sure I shared-but right between Nashville 2022 market and The Sampler Guild of Georgia annual Retreat.  I managed to fall and break my right shoulder -the ball in half.  Well, it has been a long recovery and with the help of friends I was able to keep the business going and move on.  It has been slow and I still have a few of those things hanging around that need to be taken care just seems like there is never enough time to get everything done.  

The universe had stepped in and I had canceld all my obligations for 2022.  I decided I needed to focus on getting things in line, so all my vendor and teaching obligationsfor 2022-I bowed out of.  Yes, things work out for a reason.  Literally after canceling everything the next day I broke my shoulder.  Well, if you have never done this and let the break heal without surgery, you know that it is a year long process.  It is September 2022 and I am still on limited picking up and so on.  

Well, if you know me-I cannot say no.  I am going to take a look see at the Houston Quilt Market in October of this year.  3 Stitches (281) 320-0133 asked for me to teach a class since I would be in the area.  So, on October 27th, 2022 I will be teach the finishing for Texan Style Tray Topper.  This piece will not be released at a later date.  3 Stitches will have the chart and do as they wish with it after this.  It is stitcher on my Mermaid's Firewood with an assortment of overdyed threads and finished with Mermaid's Fire Crinkle Ribbon and Mermaid's Osnaburg on the back.  Contact Pam at 3 Stitches at the phone number above to get your pre-stitching kit.  There are a few spots left.  I cannot wait to teach!

I also can design a similar design if your guild, shop or group would like to have a ruler tray topper in this style.

Well I am off to get my house ready for Isobel of Primitive Hare.  She will be in Atlanta for her only American teaching gig for 2022.  We are busy stitching her piece for her to come and teach the finishing October 21, 22, 2022.  We as of today September 8, 2022 have 2 spots open and then it is a closed class. .

Thanks for following and your support-Ebeth

OMG-I am just dyeing and dyeing.....


Southern Pecan it is in linen, osnaburg and Rick Rack-chenille coming...

Hawaiian Nut - yes I named it that to learn how to spell Hawaiian-laughing.  It is in linen only at the moment.

Mermaid's Firewood-great brown with some grey undertones.  Just envision a lovely group of Mermaids gathering Driftwood and drinking a glass of Octopus Ink and sitting around a bonfire enjoying the evening....

All of these are great neturals that samplers and primitive pieces would look great on.

Keep looking-more to come...

OMG-almost forgot Mayflower Grey Crinkle Ribbon....I have a new piece coming out with this and I have an announcement regarding my ruler boxes....will be putting those out there later.  

Off to dye-pack and not go crazy....let's hope-well I am already there on the crazy-just keep it in check....Hugs and thank you for your support Ebeth

Nashville 2022 sneak peaks


Small Red Hearts is a delightful design that uses covered floral wire to let the 'pin cushions' to be displayed in arrangments.  The orginials have magnets attached to the back of the hearts so you can attach needles, pins, and scissors.  What a delightful way to have your stitching implements by your side.  The pattern has the instructions to stitch and finish these delightful pieces.  Stitched on Sweeney Red 36 count linen with White Chantelly thread from Romy's Creations, Sweeney Red Velvet and Lush Meadow Chenille for finishing.

Now who does not need another box (laughing).  This classical sampler motif design was stitched with Weeks Dye Works threads on 36 count Americana Froth and Italian Custard Chenille to adorn the edge of the design.  Finishing and stitching instructions included with the pattern.  Information on what paint and how to paint the box are also included.

Red Tulip Ruler Box Lid and Strawberry.  Now who would not want this primitive two comparment ruler box with this lid that screams popping spring.  The design is from an antique sampler that I own (that is in the works being reproduced)  I just love the fact that the undulating row for the strawberries is red-not the traditional green.  As red is my fav color-that just kicks it up a notch.  Stitched on 32 count Aged Saffron, threads Simply Wool by The Gentle Art, Mater Samich Velet and Black Crinkle Ribbon to finish it off.  The 2 compartment Ruler Tray can be order from me Dames of the Needle.  A must for any stitcher.  Pattern has stitching and finishing instructions.

The lid has a lip so that it will stay in place when layed over the smaller compartment.  You can hide your mess if you need to.  Fun stitching accessory.

More releases to come.....this is just the beginning.  All patterns are winging their way to Hoffman Distributing Company, local needlework shops and my etsy.

Off to dye and create more-Nashville Needlework Show 2022 on our way.  

Hugs Ebeth

Nashville Needlework Show 2022 and beyond.....

Hold on to your horses....there are things a brewing- #Nashville2022 and more to come

Yes, I have been designing between dyeing and finishing and well just breathing.  Here is #RedTulipRulerTrayLid I have added a strawberry so be ready for more pictures .  This an adaptation of a Sampler I own and that is almost finished being reproduced and the whole sampler will be released this spring 2022.  The #RulerTray can be ordered from your local needlework shop and I will have them available in my Etsy  Place your orders-there will be a limited amount of them at market and more to come.  

You guys have seen the Crinkle Ribbon-this is #MaterSamich.  I am so excited about this new product.  I have already used it on #RedTulipRulerTrayLid and the strawberry.  I cannot wait for you to see the strawberry.  I have also used the Crinkle Ribbon on a fall teaching piece.....I see this being used a lot.  It can be Ruched, as a tie-as a hanger and more....You can iron it out to straighten it, you can crinkle it more by wetting it and scrunching it up...a fun trim to play with.

#MaterSamichChenille -OMG-I cannot wait for a good Mater Heirloom Samich on white bread and mayo.....Yep showing my flip flop southern side.  It is best to eat this samich sitting on the beach mid day with the sun beating down. The tomato should have been sitting on the picnic table warming up before it is cut open and juice flowing everywhere.....

And we cannot leave out the ever popular #HoneyWhiskey here it is in #CrinkleRibbon this definately will cure the sore throat if not just make you feel good using it.  

Well-off to work-more linen to dye and instructions to print.  Please start contacting your local needleworkshops for pre-orders....Hugs Ebeth

I did another thing

 Hey-can you believe it-more posts back to back than ever in awhile....hard to believe.  Well-I did a thing.  Been think about this since I have been painting and messing with other upcycling....I decided to add a gold dusting to the Pom came out wonderful.  It does make the Pom Pom a little more stiff, but it is way cool.  I started with Hot Santa and it is called Gold Dusted Hot Santa Mini Pom is a picture.  

This is in my Etsy
Under Gold Dusted Hot Santa in the Pom Pom section.  It will be in your local needlework shop soon.  

I hope that you are managing through our winter storms and mixes.  It is like a pig puddle in my yard now.  I am constantly cleaning the wooden floors from the muddy paw prints....

Well, I am off to get some items ready to dye.  Not sure if dyeing will happen today-raining again and that makes it hard to dry.  I have several items to finish and other things to do.  As usual-always behind.

Wishing you a wonderful day!  Hugs Ebeth
