Product Description

Growing up and living the majority of my life in the country has influenced my life and what I design. I feel blessed with the views of lush foliage, pastoral landscapes and slower lifestyle. Here are designs that reflect my past and present views.

Vintage Pumpkin Love
My favorite Vintage truck is filled with my Fall favorite of Pumpkins! They're such a happy sight to see in the Fall. You can hook this in a primitive, traditional or funky style. Imagine velvet pumpkins and funky yarn for the flower centers or silk flower centers. What about a chunky yarn for the pumpkin stems...lots of possibilities.. There are so many choices in pumpkin colors such as Tangerine Tango, Blooming Pumpkin, Joyful Orange, and my newest orange Tomato Spice. For the pumpkin flowers Marigold Fields or Golden Love would be pretty.

Vintage Flower Power
I love Vintage Trucks and here I have filled my version with a butterfly bush, vines, flowers and butterflies. This design is representative of my idea of a lovely outing to the nursery in a cool truck! You could hook this in a primitive or traditional style or go fun and funky with textures in the flowers.

A Murder of Crows
A group of crows is called a "murder", hence the name. I find it fascinating to watch the birds in my backyard and especially crows. You can have a lot of fun with this rug! The border would be a great place to use up worms from your stash. I've dyed a piece just for the crows in this rug called "Just Crowing". Look in Hand Dyed Wool/Dark/Just Crowing.

Birdhouse Blues
A paradise for birds with glorious abundant sunflowers, berries, a beautiful water fountain for bathing and playing in with music to soothe the babies in their flower nests. Pattern on Linen FPBD2004140 Size:33in. x 39in.

Believe! A Farm Christmas
This sweet Victorian building was and still is on the farm where I grew up. It has had many uses over the years; a chicken coop, a storage building and playhouse by us among all the farm storage. Recently it has been home to a holstein calf who grew up to be a big boy who will gently slather your face with his big tongue if you let him, a few Jersey calves with their decadently long lashes and baby pigs all watched over by a pair of dogs.
