“Aunt Eliza had brought Ma a large red apple stuck full of cloves.

How good it smelled! And it would not spoil,

for so many cloves would keep it sound and sweet.”

Little House in the Big Woods

by Laura Ingalls Wilder

(Completed cross stitched roll sold, thanks)

Pocket closed


Pocket open 


To make your own pomander,

you’ll need about an ounce of cloves

to cover a medium sized apple.

Push the cloves into the apple.

Laura did not describe any decorations

on her mother’s pomander,

but as for me I decided to add a ribbon to hang

it on a doorknob or a cupboard


Enjoy stitching my dear friends !!!

Civil War Hussif Needle Case ...

Definition of a hussif:

 It is  a case containing thread, needles, and other articles for sewing.

They were carried by soldiers in their haversacks during the Civil War,

the housewife or huswife kit was used to store sewing supplies.

These needle cases were made by family members

and given to the men before they went off to war.


I decided to sew one of my own and a few days ago,

I did a few prototypes of various sizes.

All sizes are nice depending on what you want to store in it !!!


The complete Needle Case is sold, thanks.


    Thanks for stopping by !!!
