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.

SUMMER COLLECTION

And so it's time to present the patterns I designed inspired by my recent whale watching experience. Haveving the honour to see the humpback in Massachusetts Bay changed something in me... there is something mystical in those creatures.. Something that changed my perspectives, my way to be... It's difficult to explain... I hope my designs will help you to understand what I mean. And I hope you'll love them <3 div="">

MOTHER OF THE OCEAN melts together skies and oceans, and this melting is the main aspect of both my patterns and new fabric. The constellation of the Whale (Cetus) is far far far away from our little planet, but it is also in our oceans... it "swimms" peacefully in the deep blue/black water... and the silence of the deep universe and of the deep oceans is interrupted only by the chant of the whale..





BOSTON LIGHT is the pattern I designed starting from my own picture of the actual Boston Lighthouse. I remember I was on the boat and see this beautiful landscape and asked to the bar attendant: what's the name of that beautiful Lighthouse, and she replied: hun is the BOOOston Light, with that beautiful bostonian accent I adore LOL.





Boston Light has been stitched on OCEAN AND SKIES 30 count linen, by The Primitive Hare. I recreated the fusion between skies and ocean. Initially I wanted to stitch all the ocean and then I thought: wait... Elisabetta B. will kill me LOL... let's paint the ocean on the fabric!!! And so this fabric arrived in this world. 
Each piece is different and there are some blue spots in the skies too. No piece is similar to the other one. They are ALL DIFFERENT.



SELKIE is not brand new because I released her for celebration Market, but it's the queen of my Summer Collection <3 div="">




I hope you'll love my summer collection!.

A special thanks to Elisabetta B., my amazing model stitcher. I want to thank her also because she is very wise and helped me a lot in some very sad moments of my life. She doesn't speak too much, but wisdom doesn't need millions of words...

NASHVILLE RELEASES PART 1

Hello stitchers of the world !
This is the first part of my Nashville releases, and as you can see includes the continuation of the very beloved series SPIRITS OF THE WOODS. Please feel free to send preorders to your LNS, or to me if you don't have a LNS or if you live in Italy and Europe (anyway some French and Russian shops sell my patterns and also some Italian shops).

Please remember to SUPPORT always your LNS, they are precious and I know it's so very hard to run a family business :)) So....


The Spirits of the Woods series includes 3 different patterns, sold separately:

THE OWL , THE FAWN and THE SQUIRREL.
They are all stitched on Boleyn linen 30 ct by The Primitive Hare.








*********



You can order also the 2019 SPIRIT OF THE WOODS PINS SET 
and the adorable OWL or  SQUIRREL FOB








*********




Then, I designed also my new Tudor pattern: TUDOR MAIDEN, inspired by the badge of Catherine Parr, the only queen who survived Henry VIII. This pattern has been stitched on Old Salem Linen 30 ct linen. The upper part of the pattern includes a cross stitched Tudor Rose, but I finished the pattern with a very precios handmade Tudor Rose. You can purchase it separately and use it as a Scissor Fob or to finish the piece. The wooden, hand painted shield is available too.



To complete the TUDOR MAIDEN project you need: 
1 pattern
1 Jewel/Fob
1 standard cut of Old Salem Linen 30 ct
1 wooden hand painted shield
