Please Pardon the Mess.....

Blogger is at it again....
won't let me change the background to what I want, and keeps making me sign-in...
well, can't complain much, it is FREE!!

in the meantime,
here is the finished little pinkeep that I'll be teaching at the Loudon County Sampler Guild:

"Harvest Pickin's"

it measures approx. 4.5" x 2.75"
on 28ct linen over two...

I don't have the stitch count yet
(Miss Bonnie! I will email you in a little while!!!)
because I still have to chart it...

I stitched it with all DMC threads ~ and filled it with crushed walnut shells.

I am selling a limited number of kits if you're interested ~
cost for the kit is $20.00 inc. shipping
and you get:

~28ct hand dyed (by me!) linen
~DMC threads
~coordinating reproduction Civil War era cotton fabric for backing
~reusable chart
~color photo

just give me an email to order

I think the heat is getting to everyone...
so I will be (again) laying low and stitching today
after the last of the new design orders are processed & shipped...

...the distributors orders have gone out,
so you should excpect the new designs to be in your local needlework shop soon!!!

I have been charting new designs for Christmas/Winter,
hoping they will help me cool off a bit!

here are their names:

"Christmas Adam & Christmas Eve"

"Mary Snow's Sewing Pocket"

stay cool my friends & please leave water out
...for our little wildlife friends

Blessings from the Farm...

Very sweet pinkeep Lori - love the diminutive size!! Your holiday patterns sound like they're going to be fun! Have a wonderful Tuesday! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

Love the new pinkeep, Lori! The perfect little fall item!

And the names of your new Christmas stitcheries sound very intriquing - especially the Christmas Adam and Christmas Eve!! I will be waiting patiently to see the finished products!

Stay cool! Think I'll stay in and do some stitching today as well

Nancy said...

Such a pretty pinkeep! Looking forward to your winter designs!

I wish I lived closer to you to join a class of yours. Alas, I shall have to be content with the internet. I am posting your new pinkeep picture on my sidebar with a link back to you. Also, the Witches'Garden sampler from my previous feature post about your work. It's awfully humid here, too.
Stay cool, my prim friend.
Warm Regards,
Susan B., Western MA

I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know how much I enjoyed my trip to your shop Sunday! I was down from Pa/NY visiting my sister and we took a drive down....great treat! I really love the feel of the place and the great kits! Great use of all the antiques sprinkled about, a must see for anyone near you! We also took a walk over to see your animals: delightful place!

Well Lori,
Personally I like the white clean look...but I know you want to have something different.
Beautiful stitchery!

What? It is time to start Christmas projects again already? The earth is just startin' to heat up in Utah! I would love a pin keep kit. That would make a good starting point for cross stitch which I intend on learning! Constanceoc@yahoo.
