Oh it is hard to capture how tiny this little pinkeep really is...so tiny & sweet! The bird measures just a mere 3" tall and is constructed from 25 count flax linen. The cross stitched motifs are worked over 1 thread using one strand of floss. The strawberry emery that hangs from the beak measures just 3/4" tall and is constructed from red flannel with a green wool hull. The bird is then simply mounted onto an antique Singer sewing machine oil can. These types of oil cans are readily found on ebay & antique shops. Poke rusty old pins into pinkeep & find a special little spot in your heart & home for this little bird.

Happy Stitching,

New Autumn Patterns Coming Soon!

A fun autumn pattern for all you cross stitch lovers! The acorn is worked on 22 count over 1 thread using DMC floss. The acorn cap and backing is stitched from the civil war reproduction print. The piece is then stuffed nice and plump and topped off with a twiggy stem for added detail & texture. Looks great tucked in an old wooden bowl that is filled with dried pods, acorns & rosehips.

Named after the nursery rhyme this pumpkin headed pair are all decked out in their Halloween attire. Jack even has his pail...a pumpkin pail, of course! Lets hope Jack doesn't fall down and break his crown! The bodies are painted, sanded and then distressed for that old look that we all love. Jills candy corn necklace is needle punched and looks good enough to eat!

I plan on making a bushel and a peck of these fun & folky pumpkins to tuck in every nook & cranny of my house. The pumpkins are the fancy type that we have all grown to love. Pumpkins are constructed from osnaburg that has been painted, distressed and then waxed for a great prim look. Twigs are used for the stems with rusty wire vine tied to the stem.

The release date of these new patterns is June 16th. We are taking pre-orders currently on our website.

Happy Stitchin',
