The inspiration for this pattern comes from an antique woven wool coverlet by the Gilmour brothers of Union County, Indiana ~ circa, 1839. The sturdy farmhouse between two trees with a picket fence was their signature motif. The design is worked on 40 count Ale linen over 2 threads. The piece is then finished in a cute little wooden tray...a perfect place to rest your needle and pins. Stitch count - 142 wide X 61 high.
Pattern for two frolicing rabbits with flowers and basket filled with eggs. The piece is a perfect finish on the 6" Robin's Egg Blue shaker box by Lone Elm Lane.

I chose to fill the box with easter basket grass and tucked a few eggs into the nest. The lid then sits down into the box for a wonderful spring-time display.
Pattern for a scissor/needle keep and a pinball. The simple flower and sampler is stunning on the dark linen. Designs are worked on the 35 count Gun Metal linen.
