Halloween Spirited Goodies...



New patterns coming soon
for your stitching pleasure...
 An 18" Halloween spirited cherub who flies over pumpkin patches
and sprinkles her fairy dust upon the pumpkins so they grow extra big.
Antique sheet music is used for Madam Halloween's wings and star garland
and a real pumpkin stems tops of her head.  Body is painted, sanded and then distressed
with stain and ground cinnamon for a wonderful old-time look
and delicious smell!

A NEW cross stitch chart for a charming 6" ditty pocket.  A primsical witch is not seeing stars, she's seeing pumpkins...lots of pumpkins!  Which pumpkin would a witch pick????  A short and squatty one, a tall and skinny one, or one that has a wonderfully curled stem?  Pocket has an antique skeleton key stitched to the side...the key that opens the gate to the pumpkin patch!   The bag is filled with tallow berries for a warm autumn touch.    Design is worked on 35 count linen over two threads.

And lastly,
a NEW cross stitch chart for a pin keep...
a pumpkin-shaped pin keep!
This is a quick stitch Halloween-spirited sampler
that is sewn into a tall skinny pumpkin shape,
and then topped off with a real pumpkin stem.
Place on an ironstone plate and surround it with acorns
and you have a wonderful little Halloween vignette
to sit by your stitching chair!
Design is worked on 40 count over 2 threads.

I'm anxiously awaiting the arrival of my shipment
of dried naturals,
perfect for autumn-time decorating...
tallow berries,
acorns,
cotton bolls
and cotton stems
all will be arriving early next week!

More black oxide scissors are due to arrive early next week too.
I'll be busy updating the website with all these new goodies
over the weekend and into early next week.

TGIF,
Brenda

Hello there,
I have to laugh - when you wrote that the body of the Madame Halloween was stained, painted, sanded, & distressed, I thought, "Hmmm maybe that's what happened to my body:)" Your patterns are adorable - love the pumpking pin cushion.
Happy Needles,
