~ Brewing up Good Things ~

Good Morning
my sweet Friends & Folk ~

wheels are turning here…
my brain is in an Autumn-mode
{but then, when is it not?}

visions of pumpkins, black cats and
….witches are dancing around in my head ~




I have some really cool designs for cross stitch
 & punch needle coming for this Autumn, 
and I knew when I first saw this gorgeous hand dyed linen called
"Witches Brew" from
Dames of the Needle's {Elizabeth Ann Tolledo on FB} 
I had to have it….





I purchased both 28ct & 32ct ~
the colors in this linen are deep, murky and mysterious…
browns, purples and greenish-grey splash & play on the surface of this linen
 and
I swear if I look closely enough 
I can already 'see' things coming to life on it!




I have a design waiting in the wings already for it to be stitched upon ~
in both the 28ct & 32ct

if you are a lover of Hallowe'en as I am
~ I think {hope!} you'll be much-pleased with all of them… 




at the moment,
I'm stitching on a few things that will be offered on May 1st's
then I will get to working on all of my Autumn designs.

{still charting a few more, that will go out to my stitchers for me, 
becauseas much as I'd like to I just can't do it all!}





here is a link to Dames of the Needle's Facebook page

Thanks to all who have listened to me {and kindly not laughed at me ;) } 
yesterday on Pat Sloan's American Patchwork & Quilting radio podcast!
{and Thank You again Pat!}

Hoping you all have a *SPARKLING* day my friends ~

I was really drawn to that Witches Brew linen the first time you showed your purchases that day! Can't wait to see your new designs (is that a cat I see sitting on a Crescent Moon?)…and the black printed material looks great, too. One of your designs? I really like the antique pin cushion, too…so many lovelies!

Autumn is my favorite season... can't get enough of it!
That fabric is lovely. I prefer a mottled, variegated, hand-dyed look and these will lend themselves well to your designs, Lori! Now I'm off to listen to your podcast. :)
