ON THE NINTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS, MY TRUE LOVE GAVE TO ME, NINE LADIES DANCING…

Now ladies dancing…. that is a great idea. I could use with some dancing right about now. Maybe its time for the elves to have a dance party while they ship boxes!

KIT FOR THE DAY: POMEGRANATE QUARTET: WOOL, LINEN & COTTONS QUILT KIT

POMEGRANATE QUARTET: WOOL, LINEN & COTTON QUILT KIT

So there is something about the pomegranate image in appliqué that gets me every time. The beautiful fruit images in reds, greens and creams… they just speak to me every time I see them in vintage quilts especially. They just feel like Christmas!
But I don’t love intricate appliqué and I find that I start projects like that and then don’t finish them. So I designed a quilt that had just a few oversized blocks [20″ actually], made them out of fantastic wool [from Weeks Dye Works] and made the pieces themselves big and chunky and OH SO SIMPLE to make. Actually… perfect for beginning appliqué due to their size and wool! Add in some large oversized flying geese and you have yourself a Christmas Heirloom in the making!
Note: the center of each pomegranate will be a piece of polka dot fabric… but don’t worry, you won’t actually have to appliqué the fabric… it will be tucked under 2 pieces of wool… yeah!

This quilt is still a work in progress around here and I am so very excited to work on it in front of the fireplace and the Christmas tree after this sale is all done.
Quilt Kit Includes: Weeks Dye Works hand dyed wool for the appliqué, green, red and cream cottons for the sashing and border, cream linen for the background and red solid cotton for the binding. Also includes pattern. I am so very excited to see this one come together!
Quilt Size: 52″ x 52″

 

 

 

 

GIFT ITEM FOR THE DAY: WASHI TAPE

 

 

 

Okay… this decorative tape is the best little accessory ever. You can pretty much make anything “Farmhouse” simply by adding a little bit of tape to it. Perfect for scrapbooks, letters, taping up photos, adding to notes, bulletin boards, cards… pretty much anything you can add a little bit of tape to, you can use this. Also use to mark seam allowances on your sewing machine, adding notes to quilt journals, marking measurements on you rulers and more!
Each package has 5 rolls of tape, each one 10 yd, one of 5 different styles: red dots, aqua crosscheck, green daisy flowers, red daisy flowers and charcoal floral. So much fun to be had with these.

 

GIFT ITEM #2 FOR THE DAY: HARMONY FARM CANDLE TINS

 

 

 

 

 

These candles… YOU GUYS I can’t say enough wonderful things about them. Hand crafted in North Carolina by the sweet Erin, these 4 oz. tins are perfect for gifting or to have by your bedside.With its unbreakable container and lid, this candle is ideal to toss in your bag and take with you on your travels!

ORANGE STICKY BUNS: Remember waking up to the delicious fragrance of baked goods warm from the oven? Our Orange Sticky Buns candle captures the tasty smell of gooey pastry, brushed delicately with cinnamon and topped with zesty, orange cream frosting. Mmm, so scrumptious!

SPICED CRANBERRY: Spiced Cranberry is a traditional holiday scent that conjures garlands strung with deep red berries and dishes of glistening, jellied sauce. Tart cranberry is infused with complex spice notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and vanilla.

MULLED CIDER: The approach of autumn means apple season in North Carolina, and apple season means fresh cider. The Mulled Cider candle evokes a blend of spicy cinnamon and cloves with a dash of nutmeg and dried orange peel swirled into a steamy cup of hot apple cider. Let this inviting smell from Harmony Farm Candles warm your home as the weather gets colder and the nights get longer.

SUGARED FIG: Lighting Harmony Farm’s Sugared Fig candle spreads a sweet fragrance of mellow vanilla combined with rich brown sugar and ripe California figs. The delightful and heavenly aroma will fill any room, making sugar plum fairies dance in your head.

Harmony Farm Candles are wicked, scented and poured by hand in small batches in my cottage workshop. Made from soy wax—from U.S.-grown soy beans—they’re long-burning (an average of 15 hours for one 4 oz. tin!) and environmentally friendly. They are made with no added dyes and lead-free, zinc-free cotton wicks.
To optimize the life and scent of your candle, the recommended burn time is 3-4 hours at a time. Trim the wick to ¼” before lighting. Allow the melted wax to reach the edges of the jar to prevent the wax from building up and tunneling. Never leave a candle burning unattended or within reach of a draft, pets, or small children.

Soy wax is also biodegradable and easy to clean up! After your candle has burned to ¼”, pour off the remaining liquid wax, then wash the tin with soap and water and reuse or recycle it.

Tin measures 1-5/8″ tall by 2-3/8″ across.

NOTION FOR THE DAY: THREAD BEESWAX IN A TIN

LITTLE TIN OF  THREAD BEESWAX

 

 

 

100% Beeswax Thread Gem: Pure Beeswax Thread Conditioner by Posey Handmade. Made from 100% pure beeswax, these cute little gems will help keep your hand-stitching thread from tangling and help your thread to glide through the material easier. These gems are approximately .5 ounces each and 1.25″ x 1″. Each gem comes in a little zip lock baggie for safekeeping as well as a handy metal tin.
Note: 100% pure beeswax may discolor light colored fabrics and thread. Be sure run thread through your fingers to remove excess wax before stitching to reduce any potential discoloration.
