Housework is for the Birds from Heartstring Samplery is close to my heart, cause I hate housework. I'd rather do almost anything else! She has it stitched on 28ct natural linen, which she coffee stained before stitching. Gentle Art threads are used. The bird is actually a cotton fabric and the wing is wool.
New from Threadwork Primitives (our Philadelphia designer) is Cottage Rose. The pincushion is cute but I like the finish on the whisk broom.
