EARLY STITCHERS CLUB 2019: Winter Memories

My dear stitchers, this is the last pattern for this amazing 2019 EARLY STITCHER'S CLUB. This pattern has been inspired by a real larch that grows close to my house. I was driving home and I saw it, with its curved branches, so elegant... I remember I thought: it’s dancing in the snow. This year we had snow very early in November and the larches still had they orange needles on and the contrast between the brown trunk, the snow and the orange needles captured my fantasy... I came back to take a pic few days ago but the needles were gone... I attach the pic anyway: can you see the strange curvature that take the branches? I simply love this tree and for this reason I decided to dedicate the last pattern of the 2019 Club to it and to its majesty...




IF YOU WANT TO SUBSCRIBE THE 2020 CLUB: SUBSCRIPTIONS WILL OPEN AFTER MID JANUARY

Meanwhile: Merry Winter!!!!

I had a very intense month and I really have to thank my model Elisabetta B. for stitching these patterns super fast and also my finisher Paola for helping me with her immense, huge collection of ribbons lol ! Thanks girls! But now!!!
Let's talk about the patterns:

FOR SANTA
available on my Etsy: CLIIIK
includes 3 ornaments, and the rusty bells pack can be ordered separately. The idea comes from my dog lol: oh santa please: it wasn't me!!!, this is what I'm sure that Kiran would say!!. If you look at the picture you'll see that the is a missing piece of cupcake!!! LOL



LITTLE CHRISTMAS
available on my Etsy: CLIIIK
This pattern is inspired by my pets too... I have no children and I use to say that they are MY babies. I can imagine Santa cuddling them on Christmas Eve, meanwhile I'm sleeping and they are around the tree playing and waiting for Santa. I'm sure they can see him!!!!

HALLOWEEN THREAD WAXER

Hello folk!!! My waxers are ready to be shipped. I hope you will love them!!!!

Halloween Thread waxers , handmade:
- I use only my bee wax, that I patiently gather from my 2 beehives during spring and summer, for this reason they are very limited. 

- Each waxer is different in color and shades. Some are more yellow of others.

- it takes me days to purify the wax, and it’s all handmade, I don’t buy wax... my wax comes directly from the hives

ATTENTION PLEASE:
I keep bees to help Mother Nature, I don’t sell honey because I use it to feed my own bees. The only thing I sell is beeswax because having bees is crazy expensive... Incomes from these transactions will be spent for bees.

NO BEES HAVE BEEN HARMED DURING THE WAX GATHERING. The beekeeper has been harmed a lot 😂😂😂 by boiling wax

HALLOWEEN AND CHRISTMAS RELEASES part one

Helloooooooo! I bet that some of you are waiting this post since weeks lol.. and some other since one year ago!!! And so, let's start!!! This are my Halloween and Christmas new patterns!!!! It will be a long post....


BLACK PHILLIP
On Etsy: CLIIIK


inspired by the movie THE WITCH. I remember I asked your opinion one year ago and so I decided to design this black goat following your enthusiasm! This movie is the perfect representation of the New England idea of what a witch should be, do and think in the XVII century.
Wouldst thou like to live deliciously? LOL


Black Phillip is stitched on NEW fabric DARK SPELL, 30 ct linen.
On Etsy: CLIIIK



PENDLE HILL WITCHES
on Etsy: CLIIIK



I can't believe I gave my Model stitcher a pattern with a mistake... The correct name of Alice is NUTTER, and it is correct on the pattern you buy... but I gave her a pattern with the mispelled name.... shame on me!
The witches of Pendle are quite famous in England and I've been very happy to visit Pendle Hill in Lanchashire last September. Alice Nutter is based on my own picture of the statue that has been dedicated to her some years ago.
Stitched on Old Salem Linen


NEVER MIND THE WITCH
on Etsy: CLIIIK


I designed this pattern probably one year ago and I think it's finally time to sell it lol. It is dedicated to my friend Callie Callie and her cat Pippi, and amazing Lykoi cat... spoooky and marvellous. Stitched on Boleyn Linen 30 ct.


WINTER BLESSINGS
on Etsy: CLIIIK


an adorable medallion to wish you all a happy Winter. Inspired by Victorian atmospheres it reminds me of carols, snow, friendship and peace... and adorable jingle bells! Stitched on Old Salem Linen 30 count


LA BEFANA
on Etsy: CLIIIK


Every year, on the 6th of January, I wish to all my friends and customers a happy Epiphany... and a Happy Befana day! And I receive waves of enthusiasm! And so I thought: let's try to design her! This old good winter witch, Mother of the Winter...
I don't know if it will sell a lot, but this pattern is 'a pattern of the heart'.. designed for love...
Stitched on Snowfall 30 ct linen.


HAUNT ON
On Etsy: CLIIIK

stitched on CRISPY OCTOBER 30 count
On Etsy: CLIIIK


Finally, let me thank, as always, Elisabetta B.. 
She stitched everything beautifully as always and, one in a lifetime,
 with no hurry LOL. Thanks sweetie.
