For the Primitive Stitcher....and some stitchy news!

Happy Weekend Friends & Folk!

hoping your weather is settling down a bit ~ no such luck here, though will be the hottest yet!

I wanted to first THANK all of you who so generously offered to become model stitchers for me! all fill my heart with your kind words and friendship...I am blessed by having such wonderful, kindred souls contact me & follow along on this blog :)

I have chosen two girls that I really think will help me immensely ~ and they are
Faye Riggsbee & Starr Baumgartner

I will be sending them along new patterns for upcoming Hallowe'en & Christmas releases next week!
I'm so excited & hope they are too!

Now, on another note, and since we are speaking of stitching,
I have listed new items in my etsy shop ~
LARGE, MEDIUM & SMALL Primitive Scissors (the ones I use all the time)
Some of my
(with just a smidge of fresh lambswool tucked into them to keep your needles sharp)

my etsy shop is :
I am still waiting for the 30ct & 32 ct linen to come...I'm wondering if the storms haven't delayed shipping time a bit??

...please be patient, I will ship out those orders as fast as I can!!!
and I am stitching tons of little pumpkin heads, skeleton keys, witches hats & the like for the upcoming Ghoultide Gathering show in October...I'll share pics of my finishes soon!!

Keep cool, & enjoy your weekend ~
