My Latest Score...

Brynwood Needleworks' Singer Table

Could anything be more perfect for a studio located in a 100 year old farmhouse? I used to have about a dozen vintage Singer sewing machines when I had my needlework shop, but when I closed it, most of my machines went to live with a friend.

I've kept my eyes open for a treadle base, hoping to have a table top made for it when I found one in great condition. I didn't really want to have to use a wire brush to clean it up, though.

I finally found exactly what I've been searching for, at a perfect price...and it already has a beautiful top. I brought it home and now it's in the studio. It's another Facebook Marketplace score!
 
Brynwood Needleworks Table In The Studio
 
Until spring (when I open my studio door to let the fresh air in) it will sit right here. I've got it butted up to my Jane table, to give me a bit more working space while I'm making wallets and bags. For now, it's just perfect where it is.

Under My Needle...

Brynwood Needleworks - Blue Crystal Pincushion
 
I caught up on my current orders yesterday, and just as I was leaving the studio, my phone pinged to let me know I had a new order. I'm always excited to see what my clients liked well enough to order. This was what she ordered.
 
Today, I'm making a custom Kirby Crossbody bag for a dog-loving client, and then I'll make the Blue Crystal Pincushions. These orders will both ship out tomorrow. 
 
I only have one more of this pincushion container in my studio, so I'll make both of them up today. (It's one of my favorites!) The last one is listed HERE in my shop.
 
Wooly Critters Blocks
 
My next project will be to start assembling these blocks into a quilt top. I'm still debating whether or not I'm going to hand quilt this piece. The border will have applique'd flowers all around, so I've got plenty of time to make up my mind. 
 
I'd like to have the blocks assembled by Sunday, and I'll be able to choose my border fabric when I head to Primitive Gatherings on Tuesday next week. Fun! Fun!

New In The Shop By Noon...

Brynwood Needleworks - Quilter's Cork Kirby

It was a very busy, long day yesterday. This Limited Edition Bag will be listed in my shop today (no later than noon.) In addition to the fabric shown on the bag, I'll offer the additional fabrics shown above. I'm also going to make a few matching Bryn Clutch Wallets by the end of the week. 

If you love this bag, please order early. I only have a limited quantity of these fabrics, so when they're gone, they're gone.

Brynwood Needleworks - Quilter's Grab & Go Clutch

I also finished the sample for the Quilter's Grab & Go Wristlet. I will also offer this fabric in the Crossbody bag (and will create to order).

Project For A Friend... (Not finished yet)

Finally, I've been working on a custom set for a friend. The rest of this set will be completed today. I'd better get back to work. Watch the shop later this morning, when the new items will be added to my listings.
