Now, if you remember 
last Saturday I posted
some little designs I had 
stitched up.  Today was my
last day off from work till 
who knows when :( , so I got 
to work finishing one.
Here is my "Oct 31st Jack".
It's not stuffed yet, but I 
liked it so much I had to show
Let me know what you think : )
I always have a great time 
reading you comments and 
really appreciate your visit.
Until next time.
Happy Stitching everyone.
Smiles and hugs,

Halloween Decorating ~ YEAH !!!

Yes, that's right.
I have spent the entire day
cleaning and decorating for
You may think it a bit early, 
but I have 3, 
yes count them, 
3 glorious days off from work.
So, along with designing,
stitching and 
finishing, I now have a 
house all decorated for 
my favorite of all holiday,
Halloween and a clean 
one at that !
Can you imagine my 
smiling face :D.

Other than the cross stitch
pieces, all of my decorations are
hand made by other artisans.
I have been collecting prim
Halloween pieces for years.
Can you tell? 
Hope it wasn't too much 
to look at in one viewing, 
but I am so pleased with 
how the house looks.
I will sit back tonight
and take it all in,
while I stitch the new design
I created this morning. 
I'd say it was a very 
productive first day off :)

TDIPT Mercantile & Some Stitching

I can't believe it's time again for the
Tomorrow night I will be listing two
hand cross stitched items. 
* * * * * 
The first is a small sawdust filled pinkeep with a
PA Redware look to it.  It was inspired 
by a pattern of the same name
by Carriage House Samplings
* * * * *
Next is a hanging cupboard sampler.
It has a rusty wire hanger and a 
funky skeleton key.
Design by SN Primitives.
It's backed with a soft flannel homespun
and a hand stitched wool heart.
Both are stitched with variegated 
flosses on stained linen.
 * * * * * * *
I've been focusing on some Halloween stitching.
My most favorite holiday of all.
These are a few little designs I've come up 
with and hope to finish these up into something
for next months TDIPT. 
For once I'm ahead of schedule and I have
to say it feels good.  
* * * * *
I also have a new pinkeep pattern 
all ready to go.
Of course it's a Halloween pattern.  
It's all I can think about :)
I hope to release it tomorrow, so check back!
As always, 
Happy Stitching!

Introducing...."Autumn Majesty"

I am so excited
to show you 
the new needleroll pattern
that R. M. Martz and I

I know so many of us are ready for Fall.
I know I am.  So we used a color pallet
of Autumn colors, gingersnap, 
maple syrup, tarnished gold and 
a little bit of blue and stitched it on 
35ct Straw by WDW.
The beautiful wools are hand dyed
from Ram in the Thicket.
