Winter Cottage

Winter Cottage

Primitive handmade goods and hooked rugs.

With so much destruction across our country from fire and storms, I hope you are safe and well. My heart goes out to those who have lost so much. 
Thanks for stopping by to look at my offerings for September. Enjoy!

I chose the vintage "Fence Rail" quilt block for this autumn inspired doll quilt. Known to Pennsylvania Germans as "cheddar calicos" the orange is a perfect color for your autumn decorating. This doll quilt is full of primitive charm. All visible stitching is done by hand. The quilt has been aged. It measures 10 inches by 7 inches.
How adorable! Lots of tiny tiny "x" stitches done in primitive free hand style on an old piece of vintage toweling. Dyed twill tape and two tiny antique buttons create the hanger. 2 inches by 2 inches. The ornament has a stiff insert so it will hang flat. The back is a piece of vintage toweling.
$28.00
A primitive autumn piece to add to your collection. A primitively stitched squirrel and acorn stuffed with wool batting. 8 inches by 5 inches. Fabrics used are civil war era reproduction cotton prints.
A little pumpkin of a pinkeep has been hand stitched with lots of free hand "x" stitches. Valdani hand dyed thread was used so the stitches fade from dark to light across the pumpkin. His special day of honor is marked by script in faded ink on dyed twill tape and secured with two antique buttons. The back is a homespun plaid. Stuffed with wool batting. 4 inches by 4 inches.
Primitive. Simple. Adorable. I love how this turned out and hope you do too. The pillow is made from all cotton fabrics and stuffed with wool batting. Take a close look to see the charm of the primitive hand stitching. Do you have a sock cat collection? This would be so cute to pair with them for a bit of autumn flair. Of course a basket or small chair are great options as well. Measures 9 inches by 5 inches. $40 which includes shipping.
