Swan with Flowers Pin Cushion/Frame Weight

Announcing the birth of a new piece.....this lovely piece can double as a Pin Cushion or a Frame Weight depending on how you stuff the piece.  Find the chart and most of the Bits and Bobs to complete this project in my Etsy Shop.  Swan with Flowers stitched on 32 count Aged Saffron.  Threads used: Seaweed Weeks Dye Works, Old Blue Paint The Gentle Art, Country Redwood The Gentle Art, Queen Bee Classic Colorworks, Blackboard The Gentle Art, and Navy Weeks Dye Works.

Finishing Materials Aged Saffron velvet, Rick Rack Lace Tape Burnt Butter, Little Boy Grey Mini Pom Pom all by From the Cauldron/Dames of the Needle.  Quilting fabric of your choice, crushed walnut hulls or wool roving for stuffing and heavy weight iron interfacing.  

Finished piece is 5" x 8".  When filled with crushed walnut hulls the piece can be used as a frame weight.  If filled with wool roving you have a lovely large Pin Cushion.

I must admit I recycled the idea or using Pom Pom and Lace from my friend Tracy at Ink Circles.  Thank you Tracy for the idea.

I hope you enjoy the new piece.  Enjoy and thank you for your support.  Ebeth

New listings and wild times here.....

Yep-another lapse in posting.  Sorry!  Both Isa and Miguel graduated in May-one from University and the other from High School.  Isa is settling in Nashville...still a little rocky, but she is loving it.  Miguel decided not to take a break-he did University for High School like Isa, so he stayed on with the University he did duel enrollement with and is finishing up with his summer classes.  In the middle of this I attended the Prim Stitcher's Society Retreat in Ohio as a vendor.  Then home to catch up with work.....I have been busy trying to find new and exciting items for my Etsy Shop and having Facebook Sales . 

Here are some new items and finds......
