ARCTIC CIRCLE ORNAMENTS

Hello my dear Wicked Hares. I'm sooo late with these patterns, but, less than one, they are winter/historical patterns.... Let's start to introduce the most 'Christmas one'. 
It's my ARCTIC ORNAMENTS. It has been inspired by my trip to Santa's Village, in Rovaniemi, Finland, during last January. The Village is on the Arctic Circle. It was so strange to be there... Fantastic!!! And the village is full of elves and reindeers ❤ Cuteness at its best. 
The pattern can be stitched whole or in 3 ornaments. On Old Salem Linen 30 ct. Many thanks to my model stitcher Elisabetta B. and to my finisher Paola E.

BETSY ROSS FLAG


Hello sweeties. This is the second pattern of my new collection. It's BETSY ROSS FLAG. It has been stitched with Gentle Art threads on my Constitution Fabric. Elisabetta did a fantastic job! Thanks sweetie!!!

The stitch count of this pattern is: 103 x 152
Now, that I see it finished, I think I'd have stitched the States name on the red stripes in white.... but this is only my humble suggestion LOL. originally I wanted to add some buttons right under the 'we the' words... but then I forgot. Oh my I can be so easily distracted lol lol lol... If you'd decide to stitch this pattern following my suggestions please share a pic with me! I'm curious!!!

For this pattern I released a new thread keep with a very iconic image of Betsy Ross sewing the flag, THE FIRST FLAG THREAD KEEP is available on my Etsy too.
Links are below.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY PRIMITIVE HARE and GIFT FOR YOU

HAPPY BIRTHDAY PRIMITIVE HARE.
In these days The Primitive Hare celebrates 10 years of business. And I want to start today a lot of celebrations! Stay tuned!!! We'll start today with a special sale on my PATTERNS on Etsy. Please use this coupon code: HAPPYBIRTHDAYHARE when you will check out on Etsy and you'll receive a 15% discount on your patterns order. This offer will be valid till June 1st.

In few weeks I'll be ready to present you also a special project, a collector kit in a splendid box with exclusive product. But we'll talk about this in future.

I totally forgot about this special anniversary but my friend Tuija reminded me about it!!! Oh my I'm so distracted lol. Ten years ago I designed my first pattern and, in autumn, I'd have attended my very first market. For all these 10 years I have always had by my side my beloved model stitcher and friend Elisabetta B. What a lucky person I am (oh well she's very lucky too, hiihihi)
10 years of passion, faith, fights, efforts, dreams, delusions, success and friends.
Thousands of sales on Etsy and much much much more through shops and markets and retreats... because, honestly, Etsy is only a small part of the relationship between me and you. I had the joy to hug so many of you.. and to personally touch your passion and enthusiasm. Thank you!

Thank to you I had the chance to be an independent woman, to build my house and to travel the world. Thank you! Because you are part of my life, every single day! Thanks so much!!!!

Tuija asked me how I started... well.. I had chickenpox!!! I was a graphic designer and I lived in a small flat. I was so bored.... 3 weeks at home with chickenpox.... and so I started to sew small snail dolls, cut some thread keeps and design a couple of patterns... and my new life begun!

Here in Italy we still can't meet friends, but I'll celebrate with my family this evening, with this beautiful cake. I'll have a bigger party in summer (hopefully). I want to share with you also the pics of my very first steps as designer... Some of these pics has been taken by the hubby of my friend Elisabetta B.
Thanks to YOU ALL!!!
And Happy Birthday to us all too!!!
