Witch Stitch

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend thus far.

Awhile ago I purchased a witch pattern
from Notforgotten Farm.
Using Lori's witches and the letters
from one of my antique samplers
I created these lil pillows.

(Spring, Summer, Halloween, Christmas and Winter)
Our five season room as we call it.
For this Halloween my theme is all
things Witch and Witchcraft.
The primary colors are purple and green.

Thus the reason why these three pillows are
stitched in these colors.
I wanted to do something other than orange
to be different this year.

My next stitchery started
with this lil saying.

Decided to make it into a witch boot shape pillow.

This is a OOAK as well
with antique buttons on the side to mimic 
a Victorian boot.

Finally this is the animated witch that sold.
Her finger on the right taps on the window
when turned on.
The customer who purchased this
has allowed us to keep it up for
our display as long as we leave it off now.
He will pick her up in late September.

I picked my mom up on Thursday evening
and brought her back to our house.
Then Friday morning we were off on our
antique yard trail sale.
I purchased a few things for the stores,
and a few things for our home.
Will show off in another post.
We had fun and she likes that I call her my co-pilot.

Halloween store sales have gone through
the roof since our opening on Wednesday.
A big thank you to all of our customers.
I do my best to find unusual items.
Unfortunately I think I outdid myself
on my witch themed room,
and not sure how I will be able to top it next year.
Oh least I have a year to figure it out.

Well off to work the store now.
The last day of the antique trail, so hopefully
lots of foot traffic again today.

Witch Stitch Blessings To All!


  1. I like the green and purple theme and adore your boot shaped pillow!!!!! Very nice of your customer to allow you to keep the window display and totally understand him not wanting you to run it to save it's mechanics life expectancy.
