MYSTICAL CAULDRON LIMITED EDITION + OCTOBER 31st KIT

Hello stitchers!!!! Do you know when you try to do a particular thing and then you get a better thing BUT you have no idea about how you got it? Well... this is the story of this linen.... I originally wanted to get a purple but then... heaven knows what happened... AT the end I got this adorable shaded linen, perfect for Halloween.
It's a VERY LIMITED EDITION, I have only 14 cuts and I'll not be able to dye more...
MYSTICAL CAULDRON is a precious 30 ct linen, hand dyed, each piece is different. Measures approx 40x45 cm.





********

In these cold days (trust in me, here in the mountains is cold), I also put together the kit for OCTOBER31st, the Halloween pattern I designed for Just Cross Stitch: you can buy the pattern by your LNS, my Etsy listing is only for the KIT (fabric and hand dyed flosses) and the pattern is NOT included.

CHARITY PATTERN

Hi my friends, my dear friend Lori Horan Laughlin continues to raise founds for charity. I designed this pattern to help her: THE STITCHERHOOD. If you want to receive it please join her FB group and make a donation, this time she raise donations for women's cancer. THANKS!

These are Lori's words:

"Today is the day! We are starting our women's cancer event. We will be celebrating the beauty in all women, the roles we play, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, niece, friend. It's also a celebration of sisterhood. As women I believe we share a bond no matter where we live.
I don't mean to leave our men friends out, I'm sure they all have a woman in their lives that they would want to support :) 
I also know that men can be diagnosed with breast cancer as well, but any breakthroughs in that field would benefit them as well.
We are by far mostly women in this group, all sister stitchers. Thank you all for joining us and happy stitching :) "

SIMPLY PRIM STASH: cards, fobs, purses..

Hi my dear friends, I'm trying to understand on which part of the world I'm now LOL... Jet leg is killing me softly, I'd spend my days sleeping and my nights working... this is not good....
Anyway I enjoyed the States so much... beautiful and historical Tennessee, amazing New York city and enchanted Massachusetts.... How much I love that country?
Now I'm here, in my little hare-cave and I want to show you some new items my friends and I created in these last few days.
Everything is available on Etsy or, if you prefer, sending me an email at: order@theprimitivehare.com
THANKS!


MINI PURSE
My friend Pamela made these adorable mini teeeeenie tiny purses for me, They are simply adorable and perfect for a gift, maybe for Mother Day?
You can chose 3 colors: cream / prim blue / brown. Fabric can vary :)






STITCHERS CARDS
a bundle of 5 greetings cards with 5 envelopes. The stitching hare on the front is simply adorable and the perfect addition to a stitched gift. On the front is written 'stitched with love'.
In exclusive for the Primitive Hare, design by Stacey Mead.






VICTORIAN SCISSOR FOBS
I made these fobs few days ago, they are all made of crystals and bronze charms, I love them! If you order them on Etsy you'll have the chance to chose the one you want, selecting the letter of your fob :) In case it should be sold out I'll contact you to replace it or refund it :)
