It all started (way too late) yesterday night. I was browsing the net for something that I can't even recall now, and came across this gorgeous piece on Laura's blog, Maude & Mozart. Needless to say, I contacted her immediately and just a few hours later I knew that the beauty's name is Pear Row Pincushion and it was designed by Chessie and Me. Aren't stitchers simply the greatest group of people in the world!?
It looks like the Pear and Crow theme is one that C&M has toyed with a few times. Here is the cross-stitch pin-cushion (I only found it in two on-line XS stores, by the way):
A wool-mat, felt-pincushion, and punch-needle picture:
After that, I lost control. I have always loved the little partridge in the pear-tree from With Thy Needle. I have the pattern, but I keep wasting good stitching time on the net... LOL.
Tiny cross-stitch picture by Akitty Kats Originals:
Look at this beautiful wall-quilt from Blueberry Hill Quilt Designs called Pears and Pinwheels. You can totally add a crow or two...
I love the design even more in this blue and gold version personalized by Susan (here is her blog SeeSueSew) - click on the photo, it is well worth a closer look:
I am real anxious to sew up one or two of this yummy looking (and lavender scented) door-stop posted on Scrapiana, here.
Adorable wall pockets (out of stock... sigh):
An inspirational wreath (shouldn't be too hard to make something similar, right)?:
Primilicious tart warmer and pottery jug:
Gulp - I need a bigger house!!!! To add insult to injury, after I put the C&M chart from Stitches'n Things in my basket, I added the only I-can't-live-without-it item that I have seen from the Nashville Market previews:
Isn't it pretty!? This is the Shabby Chic Pendant from Giulia Punti Antichi.
Stitches'n Things is getting in a few limited kits, so one of them made it into my basket too - I am excited!!!
Happy Stitching and Merry Spring wishes,
