"A place for everything and everything in its place"

Greetings my deare friends ~ I thought it only fitting that I design/create something for you to "keep" your back issues of The Little Brown House Gazette safe and tidy.  I’ve created this book or “Minder” if you will, to store your past issues in and I’ve even included a small wool pocket to hold the ribbons that accompany each monthly issue. 

Made from chipboard, quilt shop cotton, wool, and threads, it is comprised of two different mediums ~ wool applique' and punch needle embroidery, along with the art of stitching itself.  :~).  It is entirely made by hand, no sewing machine is needed, nor glue nor adhesive paper either.

The pear design is punched with lovely new wool threads that I've recently started using. They are wonderful, variegated threads by Yvonne Buus punched into lovely "Stitching Linen" by Searsport Rug Hooking.  I think you'll love these two new punch needle embroidery options, particularly during these difficult times when both finding certain products, and shipping, have become a challenge.  

The pattern is VERY detailed. If you've previously purchased one of my patterns, you know how detailed they are and this one no exception.  With detailed photos included, I walk you step by step through the process of creating this charming minder.   No punch needle experience is necessary as also included in the pattern, is my personal, punch needle embroidery "Goode Things To Know" booklet.
