The Witching Hour

It all started with just a few that wanted to be different do good works, yet to stand out with neat little hats.

But then everyone wanted to join and it was the beginning of the Coven.

The Coven is led by Witchy Woo.

 Primitive Needle
Is hosting the Coven at St. Charles Market
so make sure to stop by and pick up a Primitive Witch Scissor Fob.
It will match her new design 1612 also making its debut at St. Charles. 

I just finished these two Hanging Heart Pinkeeps by Stacy Nash .  They are stuffed nice and tight with sawdust. The stitched heart is only attached on one side letting it cover any pins and needles that you want to store underneath. I have them posted on the website for sale, go take a peek and see what else we have.

We will have a booth at the Gathering of Primitive Friends at Notforgotten Farm September 18th if your wanting to get out and do some shopping be sure to come as its sure to be a great time with lots of Primitive Goods to be had.

Hope your week is filled with Joy.

Robin Egg Blue

So this is what happened in the room that was pink in the last post.

This room is the smallest bedroom which I decided should stay as the guest room so that the larger room can become my sewing room.  Must be because my sewing stuff is located at this time all over the house!

An English Oak barley twist chair a wedding present from Erine and Ilona Stinnett.  Our Antique friends from Maryville TN.  If your ever in the area be sure to stop by their shop Ilona's Antiques 865-865-5768.

Birdseye Maple dresser

Maple bed

Some samplers to make all my stitching guests feel right at home.

These two lovely drawing were done by my husband, sure wish I could get him drawing again.
Just because I finished one room I was not happy with the piles of debris in the "sewing room" so I started ripping of wallpaper in there also.  So hopefully the next post will include pictures of a new sewing room.
Hope everyone has a wonderful week.  Thanks so much for all of the nice emails about my Poison Ivy the steroid shot and dose pack were the best thing to ever happen, my eye is no longer one that belongs in a freak show and there is hardly any itching.

Playing with Dirt

Well it has been a long time.  The family visit is over and I have finally got back into the groove at work.  I think that you need a rest after vacation. 
I just finished this last weekend and put it up on the website.  I haven't been out in the garden lately, to hot so I thought that I would bring it inside with this small pocket and pincushion.
It is designed by Stacy Nash call Lets Play in Dirt.  This one pertains to my daily life as that is what I tell everyone I do for a living is Play in Dirt.  I work at the State Soil Testing Lab for the University of Tennessee, and so everyday I'm playing with dirt.
Here are few pictures of the inside of the pocket
Pincushion edge, some random X's all the way around.
The little pincushion fits exactly in the small pocket so it can be carried safely from place to place.
Now how do these pictures fit into the this post?  Well while I was gone Danny decided that one of the two extra bedrooms would better serve as an office/sewing room so he removed everything from the room and had it waiting for me to remove the wall paper when I arrived home. This is a job that both of us dread so much that we never looked at it for the seven years we have been in the house.  I was most surprised when I could pry up a small corner of the paper and take the whole length off in almost one piece, I'm now wondering why I waited so long.
This is scrubbing the wall getting ready for painting.
I will post an after picture when it is complete.  Don't be shocked we tend to go full force with color in our tiny house, but think of tiny robin eggs.
Hope your week is filled with joy, you know wall paper that comes off in one piece.
