Lady Scarecrow Cross Stitch

I think the ladies can work in the pumpkin patch too, so I designed a lady scarecrow. However she turned out to look pretty friendly so she may not be scaring too many... I added some clay buttons from "Just Another Button Company" too - love their buttons. Have a great weekend!

Flea Market Tote Bag and PDF patterns

I was very busy over the weekend sewing and made myself a very nice large tote. I found this decorator fabric remnant at a new little fabric shop on Saturday. I love Cindy Taylor Oates sewing patterns, very easy to follow and have a successful project when I'm done, no hair pulling frustration moments at all with her patterns. This tote bag is from her "Easy Zipper Bags" pattern booklet. Very happy! I have also been busy working on converting a lot of my needlework patterns to PDF files and some of them are now available in my Etsy Store. Really a handy idea for those who like needlework patterns, no postage cost or wait! I love to order them that way myself. Have a great week.

Little Pumpkin Embroidery Pattern

I really enjoyed this little embroidery pattern. It stitched up very quickly and I used a beautiful hand dyed silk floss with some wonderful autumn colors. I can see it in a little pillow with maybe some tea stained laces and vintage pearl buttons. I like to make the pillows with the envelope style back opening so I can interchange with the seasons.
