If I had more patience I would love to do some of Nostalgic Needle’s more challenging pieces. Everytime I look at them I have a soft spot for their visual beauty and rememberance of a time so vastly different than today with a much greater appreciation for finery. Since I’m a big believer in doing needlework for the purpose of bringing more beauty into our daily lives I’ve always liked including Sharon’s charts in my inventory. For whatever reason/s her charts aren’t selling so I’m offering what I have at 30% off. Inventory includes: Rose Renaissance Reticule, Pendent Purse #2, Scottish Workbag, Tree of Life Bookcover, Mermaid tapestry, Ruskin Lace sampler, Coif Needlebook, Magesty’s Coif Needlebook, Hollie Point blackwork pincushion, Leaping Rabbit pincushion, Knot Garden pincushion, Golden Knot pincushion and Strawberry Thief ornament. With discount applied most will retail for under 9.00. All can be seen at http://www.nostalgicneedledesigns.com/
Yes you really, really do start this piece with a fresh piece of glennshee linen, or the like. Talk about textile manipulation to the extreme.
