What I Want on My Christmas Tree This Year

Those who love 17th Century reproduction embroidery already know Rachel Kinnison's name. She makes and sells all sorts of stumpwork pieces as well as beautiful decorated frames.  She also creates a special Christmas kit each year.  This year's is my personal favorite, a tiny music box in the shape of a 17th Century stumpwork casket!   You can read a bit about it here and see it in the video Rachel made.

Here's another look, with emphasis on the "flirty eyes."

For more details and to pre-order, visit Rachel's website.  Remember, all proceeds go to help support the Lady's Repository Museum, which specializes in early American fashion, particular children's clothing.

By the way, Rachel will be teaching two beaded stumpwork classes this year.  Isn't that dog darling?!

Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up
and let you know a few of the pictures aren't loading correctly.
I'm not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
I've tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same outcome.

I think it is the blogging software acting up. But of course things change on blogs all the time. I write these articles as far ahead as possible, after all. Sorry, but there's nothing I can do to fix things like this.
