“what is it?” wednesday #141

Welcome back to play our “what is it?” Wednesday game.

Ready to play? Here’s how:

• Take a look at the photo below.

• Please leave your guess (of the identity of the vintage item) as a comment.

• Stop back in on Friday to see the puzzle revealed—and to read the guesses (we don’t post them until the answer is revealed)!

 Good luck!

stuck inside? why not stitch a little?

The Create & Decorate January/February 2014 issue has so many wonderfully crafty projects to create. The weather outside may be frightful, but crafting indoors is, oh, so delightful! (Sorry—we couldn’t help ourselves.) The issue is available to purchase online, too, just in case you’re snowed in. Click here for a convenient link!


One of our favorites from this issue is the lovely Blue and White Sampler designed by Terry Loewen. By combining Mill Hill  beads, Antique White linen from Wichelt Imports, and variegated floss from DMC, the finished result is a beautiful antique look. 


Terry also designed coordinating snowflake ornaments that are available on the Create & Decorate website for a limited time (click here)! The motif would look equally sweet stitched onto a hand towel. Enjoy the opportunity to stay inside and crafting the winter away!
