This sweet Witch Owl is mounted on a black tin as pincushion and includes adorable smalls.  The tin is lined with a band of cute Halloween creatures.  Smalls feature a flying cat thread winder, a jack-o-lantern stitch counter, the cutest owl scissor fob and a tiny trick or treat bag thimble holder.
 December Snow          
You've arrived just in time for the town's Christmas Eve Snowman Contest!  The children have dressed all shapes and sizes of snowmen hoping to win a prize.  While you are waiting you can take a sleigh ride or go skating on the pond.  You can even get a cup of hot cocoa if you want!  Don't look now but a snowball fight has started!  But everyone better watch out-because Santa is on his way!
 Sale at the Bubbling Cauldron
There's Moonlight Madness Sale at the Bubbling Cauldron tonight!!   Come and get your new flying brooms, snake eggs, love potions, magic cauldrons and croaking toads.  Love Potion supplies are limited!! Make sure to come early before the crowd carries all of the bargains away!

Fall has brought a wonderful harvest in the garden and Mr. Rook has been picking out his favorite foods! Pompion (the colonial word for Pumpkin), Squash and Maize are first on his list of goodies in which to indulge!  May your own harvest of love and blessings be overflowing!
  Hooray for the Red White and Blue
Fireworks and cookouts; parades and sparklers-it's always inspiring and fun. We hope that you will enjoy celebrating the 4th of July with this small bit of celebration too!

New Halloween House-Bump N.D'Knight Farm and a new Kit!

Bump N. D'Knight Farm

         There are strange things happening at the D'Knight's Farm.  There are loud noises, moans, and scratching sounds coming from the barn! Where are all the farm animals?  Did you see the ghosts peeping out from the windows of the farmhouse?  And who is that looking out the window of the attic?  There is much mischief afoot at the farm tonight-come and see if you can make sense of everything.  But beware-there is still something or someone going bump in the night!
This is coming out at the Norden Craft online Show in August! Start looking for this chart at your local shop!
Also be looking for our latest limited edition kit! It is called A Spider's Sewing Trifle. There are only 200 of these so get yours early!
 
Happy Stitching!

Memorial Park is our newest addition to the Down The Lane series!  It's spring and the whole town has turned out to cheer their teams for the first game of the season!  The wooden stands are packed and there are children sitting in wagons,  and on fences.  Even the dog is in the outfield ready to catch on of the balls on the fly! Can't you just smell the peanuts, popcorn and hotdogs? It's time to play ball!

Happy Stitching!

PS
There is a new Halloween House coming in August--stay tuned!

Nashville 2016 part 2

Here is part 2 of our Nashville offerings. These are 2 limited edition kits.   All the materials are included. The Spider spool measure is a little hard to see since it is all closed up, but it is a actual 3 inch measure-1 black cat, 2 spooky pumpkins and 2 batty bats!  I was such fun to stitch 
 
 
Creepy Casket Etui
 
                                                                    
    The Letters to Santa includes the envelope to stash the small things in and the letter/pincushion says it all -on one side  " Dear Santa, I have been a good girl.  I made you cookies." While on the other side is "PS--I can explain Everything!"  Just a lot of whimsie and fun!


                                                                Letters to Santa

 
Well we have one more piece tha near and dear to our hearts that we will be posting very soon. Keep Stitchin!!
