"Unlock the Spells Hanging Pinkeep"  



  I loved stitching this whimsical pinkeep design by "Country Rustic Primitives".  The stitching was done on linen that has been stained with walnut crystals for a nice aged look.  The front and backing wool used here is a favorite of mine.  I have primitively stitched the front seam of the pinkeep and have attached Civil War era bone buttons with a rusty pin on the front.  I have also attached a wide strip of black wool for hanging.  Measurements are approximately 7 and 1/2 inches by 6 and 1/2 inches.  SOLD


"Skinny Witch Hand Hooked Wool Rug"  


This rug was hooked using some wonderful textured wools.  The pattern is by "Old Tattered Flag" and I hooked the rug on linen.  The rug is bound with wool strips encased with cording.  Measurements are approximately 11 inches by 23 and 3/4 inches. SOLD


"Witch's Brew Pinkeep"  





The cross stitch pattern is from "Pineberry Lane Fancey Blackett Series".  Miss Blackett is teaching Miss Marigold how to make a witch's brew.  I stitched the design on linen that has been stained with walnut crystals for that wonderful aged look.  I have hand dyed the front and backing wools and the colors blend with the dress and the apron on the Pinkeep.  The front seam is primitively cross-stitched.  Civil war era bone buttons are attached to the front using a rusty pin.  The measurements are approximately 9 and 3/4 inches by 6 inches. SOLD

"Clara Higgens Wall Pocket"  




I just love the way this wall pocket turned out.  The cross stitch pattern is from "Tina Woltman".  I have designed the wall pocket using overdyed wool.  The back of the pocket is a Civil War era reproduction fabric.  Walnut crystals were used to give the pocket that wonderful aged look.  The measurements are approximately 8 inches by 11 inches.  SOLD

"Primitive Mt. Victory School Sampler"  


  I love this primitive style that a young girl just learning to stitch would have made.  My stitching was done on straw linen that has been aged with walnut crystals.  No glass on this one for a nice early look.  The frame on the sampler is vintage.  I have sealed the back of the sampler with brown paper.  A saw tooth hook is included for hanging.  Outside measurements of the frame are approximately 9 inches by 10 inches.  "Stitches of Olde" has designed this sampler.  Offered at $45.00 plus shipping and handling.
