The Witch is in.....

I know that it's not Halloween and it's a way's away, but why wait.  Here is my Witch wall and/or door hanger.  She's made from muslin, grunged and stained.  Her face is green with a long crooked nose and button eyes.  The black hat is also made from muslin and has a cheese cloth wrap with a banner that says "The Witch Is In" and attached with rusty pins. Her straggly hair is made from a heavy twine that has been stained black.  She's quite a site don't you think.

Do you know....

Has anyone ever seen this pattern for sale. Or do you know if it is available as a pattern.  I saw this picture on facebook and the person who posted it is looking for it as well.  I've looked everywhere that I can think of and haven't been able to locate it.  Maybe there isn't a pattern, I don't really know.  It is a fantastic design "who ever made it".  Just love it's uniqueness.  Let me know if you've ever seen it or happened upon it.

Sneak Peak....

I thought I'd give you a sneak peak at one of the items that I've almost completed.
This is Prissy Sue, I still have to put on her hat, face "so to speak", and her dress "oops, don't look".....This is another pattern from Sassafras Hill. You'd think I like her patterns....and yes, I certainly do.

Pins and needles

Here kitty, kitty...  I just loved making this pattern from Sassafras Hill.  It's very easy.  I'm hoping to make a few more.  I'll be stitching and stitching this weekend.  I made the body and pocket from osnaburg and the pin cushion using a homespun fabric.  There is a grunged tag attached some old buttons and pins for added fun.  I made my tape measure for the front pocket by scanning mine and then printing it onto fabric.  It came out very nice if I say so myself.  I hope you like my kitty.

It's been awhile....

Sorry I haven't been around lately.  Will have some pictures for you soon so that you can see what I've been up to. I've been sewing, and been junking and I can't wait to show you what I have. I've been working on a few things for the November show.  Yup, it's going to take me that long to have enough things done for a 3 day show.  I have a lot of work ahead of me.  I'm excited but at the same time scared, what have I gotten my self into??????  Am I crazy, probably, but I'll get over it.  I've been keeping up with everyones blogs even though I haven't posted anything on mine.  I enjoy reading all your posts and looking at your pictures.
I"ll give you a hint on what I've been making, "bodies" and one of them I've decided to finish. Her head, arms and legs are painted, and skirt is currently hanging to dry.  I'm anxious to get her done so that I can show her to you, probably this week.. Keep a look out. Bye for now!!!!
