Here is the little Fall ditty I started stitching last week. I collect slaw boards and thought it would be fun to create a hanging for one. This will be one of my listings on PHM next month.
In case you are wondering.....A slaw board...or cabbage cutter is a term used for these old wooden slicers. I have quite a collection of them. I try to find ones that different and have a nice patina to them. I display and hang them around our kitchen.
Bought some of these tin frames years ago at the Dollar Store. They were magenta...not anymore. I have a sweet design I want to stitch that will fit the opening perfectly. Something for next month's Primitive Handmades Mercantile.
I'd like to invite you to become a member "Friends of Threadwork Primitives". A new group that was created for fellow stitch friends who enjoy my designs. Get updates on new releases and special freebies. See finishes by members and find inspiration! It's a closed group, so just request membership.
Dear Friends, I'm excited to announce I have two new designs ready for release. One is a Quaker style sampler with a fun twist and the other is a cross stitch and wool combo design. I've been asked many time to create a piece that combines both cross stitch and wool, so I hope you'll like what I've come up with.
I have a great fondness for anything in the Quaker style. This is a sampler I've designed with that style in mind, but I wanted to give it a bit of a twist. I've added a wool patch on the bottom, so you can add your favorite little treasures, such as buttons, keys, pins etc., of which I have many....and rather then have them sit in a drawer unseen, they now have a special place for display. The bonus pinkeep design is also included in the chart pack.
Design Info: Stitch Count: 128 x 117 (sampler), 80 x 74 (pinkeep). 32ct Vtg. Sand Dune and 36ct Pecan Butter by Lakeside Linens. Blackberry Primitives Wool ~ Yarrow. Beautifully model Stitched by Cindy Ruckman Cabrey and framed by Patti Nicolosi of By My Hand Needlewerks. "Nightingale's Garden"
I've been having lots of fun working with wool lately and thought it would be great to finally combine the two in a design. This was a fun piece to create and I love how prim it turned out. The wool farmhouse was inspired by one that is right down the road from us.
Design Info: Stitch Count: 158 x 51. 30ct Tin Roof linen by Weeks Dye Works. Blackberry Primitives Wool ~ Boulder and Slate. Beautifully framed by Patti Nicolosi of By My Hand Needlewerks. Both of these new designs can be purchased from your favorite needlework shop or directly from me in my Etsy Shop. These and all my designs are listed there. Thank you for all your continued support and as always, happy stitching! ~Nan

I fell in love with stitching counted cross stitch over 20 years ago and it has become a part of my every day routine. I love anything primitive, so I'm drawn to stitching and designing in that style. Threadwork Primitives reflects my love for old and prim.
