Latest Hornbook out of the Series from Just Cross Stitch Magazine and Class pictures for Annie's Needle Arts Festival

Just Cross Stitch Magazine Here is my latest from my Hornbook design from Just Cross Stitch's latest issue.  The whole hornbook series was stitched to fit on large hornbooks from Retromantic Fripperies (formally know as Images Stitchery Design.  The Pom Pom trim can be gotten from From the Cauldron-a new division from Dames of the Needle/Finger Work that offers hand dyed trims for finishing.  Your local needlework shop can purchase the trim directly from Dames of the Needle @ or from Hoffman Distributing Company .  I hope that you enjoy this new addition to the series.  Keep an eye out for two more designs in Just Cross Stitch.

Also, please look at my class to be taught in December at Annie's Needle Arts Festival. Celebrating Buttons and Christmas at the Lightfoot Home and Tenement.

Thank you for looking!!!!!  More to come.  Ebeth

Color has arrived at From The Cauldron's Back Yard

Blooming color hanging.  It is just waiting to be shipped to new homes.  Here are Hallow Moon, Fra-Orange and Vam-Purple....wonderful Halloween colors. 

 Red Velvet Cake Pom Pom and Faded Rose Cluny Lace waiting to be packaged.
 Hallow Moon is a wonderfully bright yellow color and just waiting to be used for a new Halloween finish or for a cute summer find.
 Raspberry Pearls, what can I say it just screams bright and ready to go.  Lovely color!!!
 Wonka's Blueberry, it is just bursting to get in a box and come live with someone. 
Newt's Eye, some have said it does not look like an eye, but it is a great green that can be a crazed eye.  Wonderful Halloween Color that can also be used for that great summer design finish....All the new colors are on their way to Hoffman Distributing Company and to shops that have already placed their order.  Look for these colors and if you cannot find them at your local needlework shop have them order them for you.  

Off to work on new designs and brew more color from the cauldron....I see something with bright colors in the future.  

All of my primitive fans do not fret....I have two colors in production for you.
