Let me help you with your Americana decor...

~oh say can you see drum pinkeep~



Oh how I love how this drum pinkeep turned out...
the drum was created using my antique ticking...


the stitchery is a pattern from Not Forgotten Farm...
it was stitched on linen and then cruddied...
I've tried to coordinate all the colors keeping in
prim fashion...


Lots of antique straight pins are on the top
which is a brown fabric with tiny flags...
this pinkeep drum is 5 1/2" tall and
3" wide and should be kept away 
from curious little hands...



Here is a better look of the ticking...

oh say can you see pinkeep drum has been sold...
I left it here so I could admire it...
I should have made two...LOL!

~patriotic Amish puzzle ball~



I love creating amish puzzle balls…the 
challenge of so many different patterns using a
little or a large variety of colors...this americana
one has red, blue and gold fabric...if you'll
take a close look each color has a
consistant ring around the ball...each
interior section is a red, blue and gold fabric...



See what I mean about the challenge...
wonderful detail hand stitching also covers
the seams of the outside pieces...
    I hope you love this as much as I do...
to make this yours...

~patriotic amish puzzle ball~ is

P.S. for any civil war history buffs...
the book used in the photograph is a military funds
ledger for soldiers from Ohio during the civil war.

~3 quilt pinkeep flag~


my antique quilt pieces came in handy creating
this flag pinkeep...the three stacked quilt pinkeeps
have been cruddied and they hold up the 
handmade ticking flag...this piece is 11" tall
and 4" at its widest part...

~3 quilt pinkeep flag is spoken for...
