It’s been a busy winter, so far. Mostly I’ve been working on pincushions as far as embroidery goes, although I’m about to start making some favors for the entrants of the Principality of the Summits Arts and Sciences Championship.
We have a lot of the misformatted Pattern Card Set #1 for sale. Those are going for $5 each. New sets are coming through at around $8, so this is a good buy! There’s nothing wrong with the patterns and info, but they couldn’t be cut down to 3×5 because of the way they printed, so they’re 4 1/4 x 5 1/2…..
My biggest project is trying to get a new card set or three out there and to reprint Pattern Card Sets 3 & 4. My file cabinet has gotten buried in the recent move and that’s slowing that project down, so I’ve been setting up designs for Pattern Card Set on the Jane Bostocke Sampler, Nicholas Bassee’s Modelbuch from 1568 and some Mamluk era patterns. Those should be sets 25, 26 and 27…if I’m remembering my numbering right.
…and Spoonflower prints. I’m trying to get 25 of the not-for-sale prints together to do a sampler and then I’ll have that many for sale!
So, some pincushion pix….
Embroidered (yes, double-running work) Some pictures are duplicated between this and the next section
Calicos and prints (pinpillows)
