Third pattern in my 2021 Halloween Collection. I thought it should be nice to play the bad witch once in a life time LOL... but personally I'd always have candy on halloween night!!!!! Trick or treating is one of the most cute traditions we have!!! I'm so sorry I now live into the woods and nobody come here... but when I used to live in town I always had cauldrons full of candies and chocolates... personally I think it's cute to trick or treating also as an adult lol! LOL

My friend Cam from The Resting Eeagle has created these stunning pins inspired by The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Cam is one of the entries of The Primitive Hare Crew lol, she and her daughter are more than welcome. I want to specify that OLD pins and fobs are no more available, but we have a whole new collection! All our pins and fobs are HANDMADE and they can't be identically... 

If you want to purchase these pins, as all the rest of my products, you can ask to your LNS or visit my Etsy or send me a message. Happy Halloweeeeen !!!!



SLEEPY HOLLOW is probably my fav movie... I know that it's a novel, but I learnt about this legend watching the movie, sooo many years ago. I love everything about both the movie and the book. This is the third pattern I dedicate to Sleepy Hollow, and it's also my fav. This pattern has been stitched by Elisabetta B. (as usual LOL): thanks sweetie.

Happy New Week my dear Wicked Stitchers. Last but not least, this is my fav new pattern... I love it because it gives me a good feeling, the idea of being underwater, in a magical realm... far away from the stressing historical moment we are living. My dear Elisabetta B. stitched this pattern on Ancient Stones fabric, on 30 ct. Available here: CLIIIIK 
BEAD PACK available on request sending me a message on Messenger ( Isobel Argante )

WHAT A DISASTER (or maybe not)

WHAT A DISASTER.... or maybe not!!!! Well girls yesterday I was painting a Tudor shield (see pic) and I accidentally knocked over the gold bottle on the linen my helper Mascia was cutting (we share a not enough huge table)...
I looked at the linen and had an epiphany! We need gold!!!!! Useless to say that a new linen is born and will be available soon.... I'm leaving in few days, but when I'll come back I'll present it! These cuts on pictures ARE made on purpose... the piece ruined with the color has a huge stain on it... Every cloud has a silver lining (or I'd say a gold lining)....

Hello wicked hare! The Summer Collection is finally ready!!! I know I'm not late but I have my schedule and I'm always late on it LOL. So, this year, for the moment, I dedicated my collection to mermaids, ocean and the 4th of July! I also designed a particular pattern.... let's start today with this one, and then, during next days, I'll show you the rest: 


THE STORY BEHIND THE PATTERN: When Peter Stuyvesant arrived in what would become New York City more than 300 years ago, he brought something special with him—a pear tree sapling from Holland. The sapling and Peter Stuyvesant both flourished in their new home, and as the tree grew tall and mighty, he built a career as the last director-general of New Amsterdam. Under British control, this land was renamed New York, and the tree continued to flourish on the corner of East 13th Street and 3rd Avenue in the East Village. Two hundred years after the pear’s tree journey to America, it was struck and killed in a carriage accident. While the tree is no longer standing, a plaque remains to tell its story. The memory of the pear tree endures, and if you make a visit to the New York Historical Society, you can still see a preserved section of the trunk.

Hi little hares! This is the last pattern of this season and it is not winter or Christmas themed... it's an historical one: HARRIET TUBMAN. This pattern has its roots in two stories: the Life of a Slave Girls by Harriet A. Jacobs and the real life of Harriet Tubman. Both these women escaped slavery in the 19th century and became unique examples of freedom and pride. I love these 2 women so much! Harriet Tubman helped so many people to reach freedom, she had such a faith, such an intelligence, such a humanity... Amazing woman. And I strongly suggest you to read also Harriet Jacobs book, it's absolutely a must read if you love history ❤ Stitched on Old Salem linen 30 ct. The small one on 40 ct Olde New England linen by The Primitive Hare. SPECIAL THANKS TO MY MODEL STITCHER ELISABETTA.
