House on the Hill Beckons to Thee

This beautiful set consists of two stitched pockets:  one features a weeping willow tree with birds, a lady holding a basket and a white house on a hill.  The other pocket features flowers and a verse that I wrote:
“House on the hill beckons to thee
Is it the flowers so fragrant and light ……
Or is it my heart longing thy sight …….
House on the hill beckons to thee”

When finished each pocket holds some wonderful treasures:   a pencil, a notebook with a line drawing of the design, a scrimshaw ruler matching the design, a needle book with vintage linen pages, a special little pincushion and a scissors fob for your favorite scissors.  A heart shaped pin keep hangs over one side with silk ribbon.  The stitched bands which connect the pockets feature lovely flowers in red, pink and green.

Each person will coffee dye their linen and ribbon as well as line the hand-made Birdseye maple carrier in class.  These beautiful carriers are 11” x 8” x 4” and were made especially for Merry.
