Boardwalk Revue Peyote Beaded Scissor Fob (Fern Ridge Collection)-includes everything you need to complete the beaded fob, including the flip flops charm and the bicycle charm.  Also included wood thread winder and 3" ruler featuring the wooden rocker.  They have also included detail sheets on "how to do" peyote stitch.

Constant Companion.................Erica Michaels

Constant Companion was inspired by an antique sampler stitched in 1854 by Margaret Farms, and while Linda replicated the vibrant border stitched by Margaret Farms, she used a stitching related quotation that comes from 19th-century author, Nathanial Hawthorne.  For the larger sampler, Linda used 30 ct. "Mariner's Map" linen and stitched using Gentle Arts Simply Wool, Antique Rose, Baby Spinach (3), Buckeye Scarlet (2), Copper, Dungarees, Fragrant Cloves, Honey Dew, Morning Glory, Oatmeal as well as a Simply Shaker Onyx.  The finished size is approx. 10" x 9.5".  Also included in the chart pack is the information and chart for stitching the sampler on 40 ct. silk gauze (not included) using Weeks Dye Works, Blue Jeans, Carrot, Dirt Road, Hibiscus, JayBird, Monkey Grass, Onyx, Sandcastle (10 yds), Turkey Red, Wasabi. The model on silk gauze uses exactly the same border but looks completely different.  Colors are similar, but the background highlights the design in a very distinctive manner.  You would get a similar look if you use darker linen should you elect not to stitch on the silk gauze.  The quotation on the silk gauze sampler comes from the introduction to The Ladies' Work Table Boo:Clear and Practical Instructions in Plain and Fancy Needlework published in 1844.     The design size is approx. 3.75" x 3.75"

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"
