Welcome to Torihouse Primitives! I hope you enjoy my July 2017 Offerings. Please be sure to click on each picture for a larger view. Regards, Arlene

"Alice Trimble Sampler"  



  I used warm colors of browns and golds to stitch this sweet sampler that would have been done by a young child just learning to stitch.   The design is by "Tina Woltman".  The backing fabric for the stitching has been aged quite a bit with walnut crystals.  There is no glass for a nice primitive 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 10 and 1/4 inches by 9 and 1/2 inches.  Offered at $43.00 plus shipping and handling.

"Antiques Horse Hand Hooked Wool Rug"  



This is a wonderful adaptation of an antique rug that I have hand hooked using new wools and many textures.  The rug measures approximately 28 inches by 25 and 1/2 inches and is a great size to place on the floor or on a wall.  I have hooked the horse's body in dark wools and surrounded the horse with many textured colors for the background.  This rug is hooked on primitive Linen with an 8 and 1/2 inch primitive cut. The rug is bound with wool strips that are encased with cording.  Offered at $295 plus shipping and handling.


"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

"Glory Bee Pinkeep Pillow"  



This is another fun stitch I have done.  The design by "Country Rustic Primitives".  It has a flag and beehive surrounded by tiny flying bees and is wonderful  to display all summer and into the fall.  The backing is a small floral Civil War reproduction cotton fabric.  Pure cotton stuffing gives the Pinkeep that aged and primitive look.  The measurements are approximately 8 inches by 8 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.
