On my Worktable ~

If only I had these many hands...
I could put them to good use working on my new finishes for my upcoming shows!!



I am in full-swing Autumn/Hallowe'en mode...
and I am loving it ~

...it really is my favorite time of year,
and creating for that certain time really gets my creative juices flowing.






old flourcloth has been used for the hands you see here,
and they will be stuffed with cotton batt ~






the little fabric circles are waiting to be stuffed with sawdust and dried herbs~






~ then everything will be stained and aged and finally put-together.




I'll share the finish with you tomorrow!!

Thanks to those who have contacted me regarding my pattern book in progress...
I should be releasing it mid August and will announce it's release here on the blog.
Also,
I'll be sending the new Hallowe'en cross stitch designs out to Starr & Faye for their expert stitching...
as soon as I get them out, then get them back from these two talented stitchers,
I will release them ~

The names of the 2 new Hallowe'en cross stitch patterns are:
Sisters of the Broom
&
Stove Pipe Hill

have a relaxing evening my friends ~
Blessings from the farm,
Lori
