MY NEW SHOP!!! AND 15% OFF ON EVERYTHING




Hello my dear stitchers, it's time to come back to normality! These 2 last months have been very busy but also relaxing, and now it's time to come back to work with you.
I want to present you MY NEW SHOP. As you know Etsy is killing us with fees... for this reason I built my own shop. Prices are cheeper than on my Etsy shop and there is a SALE!!!!! For 24 hours I 15% OFF on EVERYTHING!

I'll open my Etsy too, and I think I'll have both shops on for few months, but obviously I ask you to use my own shop instead of Etsy, an my business is a family business and I can't afford anymore the extra super high Etsy fees.

Enjoy my shop! And thanks!!!!!

Hello my dear wicked hares! This is the second pattern I designed for the 2022 Club. I truly wanted to be in time and for this reason I upload this pattern with a provisional cover.

I’m better now and I have begun to design again. Elisabetta, my model stitcher is super busy.
The cover of this pattern will be updated asa she’ll have finished to stitch the pattern.




Thanks so much for your understanding, I know that nowadays a lot of designs use to create ‘false’ background for their projects but I'm not very good at that, I have to learn LOL.

HELLO STITCHERS!!! Here I am with my first Club project: KITTY KITTY !!!
Kitty kitty has been inspired by a medieval watercolour on vellum, painted by an italian artist in the 14th century. Cheetah used to be a pet in noble houses... I can’t imagine the consequences....

AN ALTERNATIVE CHRISTMAS: HOOd and WOLF

I love the tale of red Riding Hood... an evening I was talking with Elisabetta B. and I had a glimpse of this pattern... I immediately took paper and pencil and sketch it...

AN ALTERNATIVE CHRISTMAS: YULE GOAT

YULE GOAT

"Julbocken" The Yule goat's origins go back to ancient Pagan festivals. While a popular theory is that the celebration of the goat is connected to worship of the Norse god Thor, who rode the sky in a chariot drawn by two goats, Tanngrisnir and Tanngnjóstr, it goes back to common Indo-European beliefs. The last sheaf of grain bundled in the harvest was credited with magical properties as the spirit of the harvest and saved for the Yule celebrations, called among other things Yule goat (Julbocken). 





Yule Goat has been stitched by Elisabetta B. on my new

AN ALTERNATIVE CHRISTMAS: GRUSS FROM KRAMPUS

Hello my dear wicked hares, it's time to present my Christmas Collection. It's a very strange one and I know it's NOT a commercial one for sure. But this year I decided to design only what was in tune with me... and nothing commercial at all. I'll sell less? Patience.... This is me this year... I hope that you'll appreciate my Alternative Christmas Collection... LET'S START WITH THE KRAMPUS!!!!


GRUSS VOM KRAMPUS

We all know Krampus!!! And after Covid I really hope to be able to see the Krampusses again this next December. Krampuss IS CHRISTMAS!!!! A very old, forgotten one, a traditional one, when the fear od dark was real... something lost in the night of time... 




My dear Cam Garlic created for me a fantastic fob and 2 pins sets... see pics!

WHERE TO PLACE THE PUMPKIN WITCH?

Hello Wicked Hares. I received a couple of messages asking WHERE TO PLACE THE PUMPKIN WITCH. I attach a pic of 'where' you can start the stitching.
When I have to position a project I do not start from the top or from the bottom, but from the point that 'meet' the printed design. In this case I'd stitch the hand in that position.
I hope this can help.

EARLY STITCHER'S CLUB 2021: Ghost Bride

OMG you'll never believe!!!! Im not late! I'm going to present you the October project of EARLY STITCHERS' CLUB a day in advance!!!! Well I have to say that this project is probably my favourite... in 11 years of designing. I love this Ghost bride, I love her!!!! This is Halloween month, therefore I thought it would have been nice to design something creepy. She is my Lady Ghost, personally I think at her as a Ghost Bride... but the veil may have a lot of meanings, it might simply be the veil of a ghost...
This pattern’s stitched on my DARK SPELL 30 ct linen, small cut.
Thanks to my Model Stitcher Elisabetta B.
