"Bunnies and Daffodils Pillow"

This pillow was such a fun and whimsical pattern to stitch. The design is by "Snowflowers Diaries".  Hand Dyed threads were used for some of the stitching of the bunnies and daffodils on the front.  I went through my stash of fabrics and found a wonderful Civil War era reproduction fabric for the back which compliments the threads.  The pillow filling is pure cotton batting.  Measurements are approximately 6 and 1/2 inches by 11 inches.  SOLD

"Spotted Pig Hand Hooked Wool Mat"

This adorable 14 inch mat with its spotted pig was fun to hook using several textures and overdyed wools.   The pattern is a "Winter Cottage" design.  The mat is bound in wool strips encased in cording.  I hooked this mat using primitive linen.  This mat can be displayed on either a table or used as a chair mat.  Offered at $84.00 plus shipping and handling.  

"Sara Bond Sampler Hanging Pinkeep"

I love making hanging pinkeeps and this sampler pinkeep came out really nice!  The stitching is done on lightly dyed linen.  The backing fabric is a reproduction floral that compliments the cross stitch threads.  The hanging pinkeep is filled with pure cotton batting for a nice primitive look.  I have attached a ribbon for hanging.  The design is by "Stitches of Olde".  The pinkeep measures approximately 8 and 1/2 inches by 5 and 3/4 inches. Offered at $34.00 plus shipping and handling.

"The Chicken -- Hand Hooked Wool Mat "

This wonderful mat with its chicken is approximately 14 inches.  I have hooked this mat on primitive linen using several textures and overdyed wools.   The pattern is a "Winter Cottage" design.  Wool strips encased in cording were used to bind the mat.  This mat can be used on a chair or displayed on a table.  Offered at $84.00 plus shipping and handling.
