November update is upon us! Hard to believe that Thanksgiving is 1 week away! The year sure has flown by and I'm starting to enjoy the warm fuzzy feelings that come along with the Christmas season in celebrating the birth of Jesus!
It was nice having more time to create this month since I'm done running to shows for the year! I actually have 6 new handmades to offer!
The Merry Stocking Wreaths were created using a pattern by Notforgotten Farm! So sweet!
Here is a close up!
2 Hooked Trees on old granite funnels!
Another box design complete! Pattern coming next week!
This sweet little guy stands 6" tall. I designed and punched him to mount on a little vintage oil can. So fun!
I found this little vintage treasure at the Simple Goods show in Ohio this past weekend! I fell in love instantly! The stitches are perfect and I love the drab worn off velveteen olive and brown textiles. Well its really not little! It measures 7" and made oh so perfectly!
Just 4 weeks until my 4th Annual Primitive Christmas Home Show which will be held
October 30th, 31st 10am to 7pm and November 1 from Noon until 4pm!
I wanted to share a new line of boxes I have been working on! It all started out with a button box after finding these sweet little wood boxes with a sliding lid. Here are the first 7 designs and all are available in my Etsy Shop as patterns, kits which include Valdani 100% Colorfast Hand-Dyed Threads and pattern on weavers cloth, OR you can order a finished box by sending me an email. Working on Christmas and Winter now!
I also wanted to share a hooked Jack O Lantern rug I added to my Etsy shop yesterday! I love the warm Fall colored wools I found at Grant Street Woolworks in Chambersburg, PA!
Come see me at Hartslog Days in Alexandria, PA October 10, 2015! Always a fun Fall show!
I picked this SWEET vintage Merrick thread cabinet up at Renningers Antique Extravaganza last Spring and it has been sitting here waiting to be cleaned up and put back to use! It is so well worn and loved but looks great it in its fresh new coat of linseed oil!
Just look at those brass knobs all wobbly and loose!
(I see I missed a spot of oil rubbing by the top left knob!)
The ink well flip is to die for....... and it comes with its won pencil/pen groove! Oh, I forgot..... my friend Ree gifted me with a vintage ink pen which I must put in place!
The top is covered with leather which is certainly showing its age but I can only imagine the stories it could tell!
The slant lid flips up to expose a wonderful large area to house the patterns I will be filling with the wonder Valdani Threads! The lid is held up with a flip up stick that is attached to the left side of the box!
Isn't it amazing how the look of aged wood makes us all warm and happy inside! It makes the perfect new home for all my threads!
Just another step on trying to organize my work area! I still have a long way to go!
Welcome to my little spot on the web! I hope you find my journal interesting and please check back often! Not many days go by that I'm not creating something. My husband makes the most wonderful wooden items for me to prim up. He closes the shop down from October until the end of February to dabble in his hobbies. So, during those months my list of new treasures for him to create in the Spring grows very long.
