FROM THE ABYSS TREASURE BAG - DOLPHIN THREAD KEEPER

Good morning stitchers! As promised few weeks ago, here is my 2014 mermaid. I'd love to design a mermaid for every future summer... This year I have designed an elegant and charmed siren...  From the deep blue Abyss she cames with hands full of pearls and jems, she visited ancient palaces under the waters and saw marvellous creatures... from the Abyss she brings treasures and spells....


This pattern has been finished in a simple bag, I use it to store my summer wips. Then, I added tons of small rusty bells... they jingle and jingle and jingle :)))))) lovely!
I hope you'll love my lil mermaid from the Abyss...

Stitched on Old Salem Linen 30 count  (available on Etsy)

LAND OF THE FREE BECAUSE OF THE BRAVE

Hello my dear girles, how is your summer? Mine is soooo cold, can you believe I have to heat???? Brrrrrr.... anyway the 'lovely' temperatures force me to stay at home and I spend my time designing. 

I'm really overwhelmed. The Halloween Mystery SAL had a huge success and I'm really late with the fabric orders... plus I still have to present a lot of things: my patriotic patterns, the Country Salmpler pattern, a new freebie and tons and tons of fobs, pendants, bookmarks, needlebooks... I must post daily to do everything! Please forgive my delays....
Let me start with my patriotic patterns... I designed the 5th queen of the needles, an 'americana' version to celebrate july th... Do you love her? I love her soo much!

Second pattern... A lil and super fast pattern to commemorate an important victory for humanity: freedom from slavery. An historical and primitive pattern I particularly love... maybe one of the most prim pattern I've ever designed...
Super special thanks to Miss Betty because she stitched this one in an evening and she also finished it and took pictures... Thanks sweetheart, luv uuuu

HALLOWEEN MISTERY SAL: Early witches

Hi Pals! I'm a lil bit late with the updates of my blog, I'm sorry!!! Anyway, if you follow me on my FB Group, you already know that I started a Halloween Mistery SAL (SAL means Stitch a Long).

or sending me an email: order@theprimitivehare.com



"Early Witches" 
is a Halloween pattern divided in 5 pieces:

The first part of the pattern will be emailed asa you'll buy the pattern (or within few hours if I'm not online). The other 4 parts will be sent via etsy convo or via email as follow:

tuesday july 15th
thursady august 14th
tuesday september 16th
tuesday october 14th

THESE DATES CAN VARY A LIL BIT. Please do not worry in case of delay.

I designed this pattern using my 30 ct Olde Salem Linen and DMC threads.
A standard cut of fabric is enough, but if you are used to sew or frame with a large border you'd consider to buy a BIG cut.
standard cut:
 https://www.etsy.com/listing/129453972/linen-old-salem-linen-big-cut?ref=shop_home_active_5

Due to tons of orders, I could have small delays in shipping fabrics, so please have patience, I do everything alone and, fortunately, you all have really appreciated this SAL, so I'm overwhelmed.
I'll ship fabric orders within 8 -10 days after payment, thanks for your understanding

Happy spooooky mystery SAL!!!
(please no... I can't show the entire pattern LOL, it's a MYSTERY!)

This is the list of colors I used and the stitch count too.
