Simply Primitives Time!

I am really drawn to gardening designs this month. Here's the items I'm offering for sale on this month's Simply Primitives.

I have three little pillows, all made from JoAnn Mulally designs. They're wool applique backed with coordinating quilt fabric and edged with hand dyed chenille.
And here's the Strawberry Trio mat from a Primitive Gatherings design. I gave a close-up peek at this in a previous posting. I love the color of the strawberries. I tend to buy brownish-red wool so I had to look for some that had more of a strawberry color and I'm happy with what I found!

I will be busily stitching away this summer. Out of the blue I received a call from the organizer of Handcrafters, a wonderful local show. This is one of those shows where people are lined up to get in the door and the vendors are closely screened to make sure they're offering truly hand crafted items. I'm really excited about this opportunity, but it will mean cranking up the production schedule and switching my focus from the garden to fall and Christmas. Hmmm, maybe a gardening witch?

What wonderful work Roberta! All are adorable - but I'm in serious love with that little strawberry mat!!! It's just so sweet!! Congrats on being asked to do the show - sounds like an honor - and lucky folks who get a chance to own your work. I think a gardening witch sounds delightful! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
