~*New Pattern Release*~

Hello Dear Friends! Here is my latest pattern...

~*Olde Autumn Pocket*~

© primitivebettys 2011

Let me begin by giving Jennie Lynn of Appleseed Prim a big shout out and a big THANK YOU! You may already know, or have read in my earlier posts, that she headed up a fun challenge for the Samplermakers group to create an Autumn Sampler. She gave us several motifs to start with that we could use if we wanted... or we could come up with our own. She gave us wonderful inspiration! Thank you Jennie Lynn!

I didn't exactly use the motifs supplied, but was truly inspired... as I created the sampler for this pocket. I didn't know when I started that my finish would be this... but it grew and became what it was meant to be... a perfect, Autumn pocket for the prim~loving gal! Really, this isn't just something to set on a side chair for display... I'm going to use mine! It is just the right size to hold my keys & coin purse... and tube of lipstick too. Or if you are a reader... it is awesome for holding your paperback when you are out n' about!

The pattern is now in my Etsy Shoppe. You are welcome to visit there... or email me directly if you are interested in purchasing. Your local needlework shop will have access to it as well... just ask them.

The pattern is $10.00 with free shipping.

It is 114 by 104 stitches. The model was worked on Weeks Dye Works 30 count Cappuccino linen (one over two)... using DMC threads.

The pattern will come with complete, clear instructions, a color chart, and a full color photograph for your reference.

I'm still stitching on the second & third models for the Schoolhouse samplers... but they will be available before too much long. That is the plan anyway.

Thanks for letting me share...

Wishing you all warm smiles...
