Uses for old, stitched needlepoint II

I think that I will have enough stitched canvases to do the chair with these pieces.  Now to locate a suitable chair.  I am also considering asking my local upholsterer if he can make the chair for me.  More at another time about that.

This was a kit from Elsa Williams, years ago.
 The next five canvases were designed by Village Needlecraft.  Gayle retired and so far as I know, did not sell her designs, which was a pity.

 I think this canvas was either a Winnetka Stitchery or a Village Needlecraft design.
Trubey stitched this canvas.  It was a design from England--I can't remember the artist's full name, but it was Jane.

More Pre-finished Items from Planet Earth

Planet Earth has added a ladies' version of a credit card case to its line of pre-finished items.

This comes in Royal Blue, Red, and Green. There is a slit on the side to allow receipts or bills to be inserted,  I have looked and cannot locate a blog entry showing the smaller version of the card case that they label "for men"--I will show a photo next week (the smaller one comes in red, blue, green, black and tan).  It comes in red, blue, and green.

This is the luggage tag which comes in black, red, lime (green) and blue.
And the best of them all, sets of coasters that are backed in cork.  The opening is 3x3 with the finished coaster being 4x4.  They come in brown, green, blue, and red.

Summer by Pippin, 2

I started stitching the Summer canvas by Pippin using the interlocking Gobelin for the body and wing of the sea gull.

I had brought home what I thought I would use for the beak and the other golden areas of the canvas; but it turned out to be too yellow, rather than golden.  So Monday I will select another shade so I can stitch the beak and the stripes in the closest beach towel.
