pumpkins, kitty, fancey blackett

Farmer Elder's Primitive Pumpkins from a design from Wendy at
The smaller pumpkin pictured above measures 11 inches tall not counting his stem. It has been made from muslin which has been stained, painted and stained again. It is mounted on an antique oil can with grungy cheesecloth wrapped at the base. He has mismatched antique button eyes, a wool mouth stitched on and a rusty wire mouth which I have stitched on. He has a stick for a stem with a wee bit of flax added for his hair. Price for smaller pumpkin is $24.00 which includes shipping.
The large pumpkin, pictured below, is about 12 inches tall not counting the stick stem. It has been made from muslin which has been stained, painted, then stained again for that extreme primitive look we all love. He has mismatched antique button eyes, a wool patch for his nose and mouth and stitched big "teeth". He is mounted on an antique hog scraper with grungy cheesecloth wrapped around the base. A long stick stem was added along with a little bit of flax hair. Price is $27.00 which includes shipping. You will love these guys.

Halloween kitty was made using a pattern by Netty LaCroix. He is made from painted and stained muslin and is wearing his witch hat, getting ready for Halloween.
He measures 10 1/2 inches x 13 1/2 inches. His nose and mouth are primitively stitched and he has button eyes. His hat is slightly stuffed and is also stitched on. He has antique button eyes & has a little bell on a string around his neck. Price is $23.00 which includes shipping.

Closeup of Kitty.

Fancey Blackett and her butterchurn was stitched using a Pineberry Lane pattern for which I have provided the link above. I love this pinkeep. I have stitched it on 32 ct. linen with one thread. Love the sunflowers it features and her tiny initials at the bottom. I dearly love Fancey, she's such a good little witch and is always so busy. This pinkeep measures 6 x 6 inches and is backed with a cream and black checked fabric. I've attached a string for hanging but it also looks great in an old cupboard or bowl. It has been aged lightly with walnut crystals.
Kindly asking $34.00 which includes shipping.

thanks for stopping by and I have a few more new wares which I will be adding soon.
