12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS 1st RELEASE

Hello my friends!!! The first ornament is ready! A bunch of you has downloaded the pattern yesterday, but today the file is complete, with pictures of the stitched piece and a short note with the traditions of the day.
Elisabetta (tender sweet Miss Betty) stitched with 2 threads of DMC on 30 ct Old Salem linen. If you want you can sew it as an ornament, but I’m going to frame them all at the end of the sal in an old window with 12 spaces.
You can stitch them separately or on a single piece of fabric, on your choise. All the ornaments have the same dimensions.

The first day is dedicated to animals, and so my pattern  :)

1st DAY: Day of Animals - Boxing Day - Day of the Wren

WINTER ICE QUEEN OF THE NEEDLES: new release

Hi sitchers! This is my new queen, this time is the Winter Queen! A cold icy queen lost in a world of snow, with a gentle polar bear and a couple of... winter hares! She is magical... I can say that this is my fav queen, maybe 'cause winter it's my fav season... 

Many thanks to Miss Betty, not only 'cause she stitched this piece, but also because she finished it in this wonderful way! She added a lovely white border, so cute! Thanks sweetie! I know I know, you hate to finish my designs, but you are soooo sweet... (luv u LOL).

DMC threads
stitched on 30 ct Old Salem linen extra aged
(available on request: order@theprimitivehare.com)







A QUICK NOTE: I have to go to hospital to have a minor surgery, nothing bad, I'm fine... but I'll have a lil delay in shipping fabric and thread keepers. No problem at all for pdf patterns, because I'll have my Mac with me... but unfortunately I'll not be able to go to the post office. So please, forgive me for any delay I'd have... only 5 or 6 days. I'm sorry...

FRAU HOLLE: NEW RELEASE

Hello my dear sister stitchers! This is the first post of the year! I hope you had gret celebrations! Soon after Christmas, every year, I celebrate the 12 days of Christmas. The second day of Christmas it's the MOTHER NIGHT. Let me share with you few words by John Matthews book "The Winter Solstice":

"... another older figure was knows throughout Germany is Frau Holle, but a better name for her is MOTHER OF CHRISTMAS. Deriving from the ancient figure of the Mother Goddess, the feminine principle of deity, she was regarded as a bringer of fertility, adudance and justice... she rode though the land during the 12 days dispensing gifts from a sleigh pulled by dogs. The most famous story about Mother Holle is the folk tale collected by the Brother Grimm"

"Holla Holla in the heavens,
a snowy featherbed you're shaking
Bless the arth with your white blanket,
moist the mantle you are making..."

And so, mt first pattern for this 2015, is FRAU HOLLE,
bringer of snow! In Italy we say that 'under snow there is bread'.
I suppose because the gentle balnket of snow allow
earth not to freeze and protect the seeds :)


STITCHED ON 30 ct Old Salem Line
(extra aged on request)
with DMC threads, by my gentle model stitcher
Elisabetta. Thanks sweetheart!
