primitive handmades mercantile update…

The third Friday of each month means that it’s time for a Primitive Handmades Mercantile update.  If you’ve never visited the site you can take a look by clicking here.  I am so honored to be among the many great fiber artists you can find at PHM.  Here are a few of the things I’m planning to list this month:

Sunflower Sampler hooked rug

This Sunflower Sampler is a design from Robin of Bird in the Hand Primitives.  I simply love Robins patterns ~ they are so charming and so much fun to hook and punch!

Lately, I’ve been using thin hand-cut strips of wool for my rugs, but this design seemed to call for my wider pieces.  Perhaps it’s the cheerful quality of this design that made me decide on some soft primary colors and wider strips?

Farmhouse Sampler make do

The above Farmhouse Sampler make do is one of my designs.  It’s a punch needle sheep shape with a rural scene.  The sheep sits atop an interesting treen spool with a vintage hook from which hangs a punched and heavily stained abc 123 tag.  The sheep is wearing a tiny skeleton key around her neck ~ perhaps the key to the barn door?

Strawberry Ornaments

This month’s PHM theme is strawberries, among other things, so I punched these tiny strawberry ornaments.  Each is one of a kind and each is backed with weavers cloth.

I’m hoping to finish one or two more projects tonight!  What will you be working on?


Wishing you a happy Friday!

  1. So weird that the theme this month for PMH is strawberries…The first item I ever sold on eBay over 13 years ago was a strawberry pincushion with a matching emery. I sent an email to join and they turned me down. I guess I don’t have the right connections. 🙂

thank you for spending some time with me!
