Where Liberty Dwells Huswife...........Heartstring Samplery

The quote, "Where liberty dwells there is my country" has been attributed to Benjamin Franklin, however no evidence has been found verifying this, but Beth felt it was a great quote whoever said it and used it as the basis for this huswife.  For those who are unfamiliar with what a huswife is, according to the Reformed Presbyterian Magazine, September 1, 1864, "it is a long piece of cloth with a number of small pockets sewed along one side, and made to fold up like a pocket book, having separate places for buttons, thread, needles, pins, & etc, such as some of you may have seen your mothers or grandmothers use."  The model is stitched on R & R Reproductions 36 ct. Old Mill Java using Weeks Dye Works: Parchment, Sandcastle, Dirt Road, Grape Vine, Fathom, Moss and Red Rocks.  

Finished design size is approx. 13 3/4" x 4"

Project QuarantineStay Home and Stitch...................With Thy Needle & Thread

Project Quarantine: Stay Home and Stitch- When we were informed that we would have to quarantine, many people were frightened not only by the Pandemic but also the amount of time they would be stuck at home.  When stitchers found out they would be spending every day at home for weeks on end, they ran to their closets and pulled out their stitching.  Never have so many stitchers, men and women, had so much time to work on their projects and the flood of pictures on Instagram and Facebook shows how industrious they have been.  Brenda has designed this pincushion, pillow, picture (whatever it is to you) for you to have your own souvenir of this time.
