Ann Huber Sampler..SOLD

Good day all!! What a week..we open for the summer season tomorrow here at the campground and we have been busy putting up new doors on the motel and of course I get stuck painting all 9 of them!! It is ok ..I am so very ready for summer.

I did manage to get a sweet little sampler done in the last two weeks. Those tiny little stitches are getting harder and harder to see!!LOL. The black painted frame measures 8 1/2 x 6 1/2. It has a great ribbed effect. I did the early work style stitching on vintage linen with muted colors of barn red, colonial blue, chestnut and gray.

It looks so sweet with little Tempy who was kind enough to sit down next to the sampler, by the way Tempy is not included in the listing, just the sampler.

It will be listed on The Primitive Gathering on the first of May. Be sure to stop over and take a look at all the fab artists there!

Have a super weekend!!

Off to California!!!!!

Good morning all...I just sent some little creations to California for their pictures. A few of my dolls and stitcheries will be in the fall issue of Prim's Magazine and I am very excited! Prim's is a fantastic magazine for primitive folk artists to show their creations.

I was lucky enough to send Belle, thanks Lauren for offering to send her back to me to send to CA...I am glad you like her new dress!! Beatrice will also be traveling there too, along with a few other goodies.

Take a look at this super magazine, you won't be disappointed!

Emma Potters Practice Sampler.... No longer available..

Good morning is a beautiful day here in NY, the sun is out and the birds are singing!!

I have been in a sampler mood of late. My first love is early work samplers and I have been creating them for over 30 years. I just finished this sweet piece, stitched on vintage linen in muted shades. Emma Potters Practice Sampler. I love practice samplers, little bits here and there. I put this sampler in a beautiful vintage standing swivel frame that I have painted black and aged with crackle.

These standing frames are just wonderful to display with my dolls. This one is small enough to slip in anywhere. Emma's sampler will be listed on The Primitive Gathering website tonight. Remember I list on The Primitive Gathering website on the 1st and the 15th of each month.

Have a wonderful day!

Beatrice will be living in Philadelphia...

Beatrice will be moving to Philadelphia to live with a sweet little girl Ella who is only 5 months old. Too young to play with Beatrice now but Beatrice will happily wait for Ella to get a bit older, I am sure they will be great best friends...
