Count Your Blessings...    #122     


“Count your life by smiles not tears...
Count your age by friends not years...”

Includes a beautiful and useful Stitcher's Etui, a Pinkeep, Scissors Case and Fob.  This luscious set of “Smalls” is so beautiful, dainty and elegant! The main Etui is constructed from a very long length of linen which is folded several times to create two pockets. We bound our model with gorgeous blue and taupe quilt fabric. Inside you’ll find an elegant pincushion tufted with beads, and a verse of gratitude enhanced by colouful flowers and fancy stitches. The matching Pinkeep, Scissors Case and Fob will fit neatly in the pockets, along with your flosses, scissors, needles and pins. The floral vines climb all over the inside of the Etui and amidst the vines are flowers made of various different specialty stitches, lots of fun to learn as you work through the pattern. There are Buillion knots, Lazy Daisies, Eyelets galore! I’ve also bordered an optional Hardanger Heart with Blanket Stitches so you can cut it out easily. We then appliqued the Heart to the front flap of the Etui. This special touch adds to the beauty of the piece when the Etui is closed. The fabric used was found in a local quilt shop, and we're sure you'll find something equally beautiful that will suit your taste. With all the various colours in this design, you have many matching fabric colours to choose from. You will be proud to use this elegant set at your next guild meeting or stitcher’s gathering! Have fun stitching! :) - Thea
