"Simple Pleasure Sewing Pouch"  




  I love stitching sewing aprons and pouches.  This one has a lot of stitching and I have used hand dyed threads on Irish Linen.  The backing, lining and strap are made with a wonderful reproduction Civil War era cotton fabric. The designer of this wonderful pattern is "Stacy Nash".  Measurements are approximately 7 and 3/4 inches by 9 and 1/2 inches. Offered at $47.00 plus shipping and handling.

"Blue Tulip Long Pillow"  




  What a wonderful primitive design by "Primitive Bettys" with lots of stitching.  I have stitched this pattern in shades of blue on hand dyed raw linen.  This pillow is backed with an attractive  hand dyed blue wool which complements the stitching on the front.   The pillow is filled with pure cotton stuffing.  I have primitively cross stitched the outside seams of the pillow.  Measurements are approximately 15 inches by 7 and 1/4 inches. Offered at $45.00 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.  SOLD



"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. 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 $75.00 plus shipping and handling.
