When finished, he's 11 1/2" tall and 9 1/2" wide, you can get it mailed or download instantly. I don't mind if you shrink or enlarge the pattern to fit your project. The links are below.

I like to remind everyone that I post pictures on Instagram often, so I've added the link to it below also. It's just too easy to add photos from my phone. I've added pictures of my fall decor, and plan on adding some spooky ones soon. Well, I'm off to get those spooky things I mentioned above ready. I usually end up moving things around several times, until I get it the way I want. I have a certain feline that keeps me from adding certain things to my lower shelves, she's lucky she's so cute!

I hope you all have a great weekend and a Happy Halloween!

Frick & Frack Rug hooking Pattern


Hello everyone, I hope your week is going well! I've been a little quiet lately, working on something I can't tell you about right now. I promise I'll tell as soon as I can! With that finished, I was able to get back to my Frick and Frack rug hooking pattern. It's finished and in my Etsy shop, the link is below. When finished, it's 8 inches tall and 12 inches wide. You can get it mailed or download instantly. With the mailed version, you can even request to have it traced on red dot tracing fabric. I don't mind if you shrink or enlarge the pattern to fit your project. I tried to get pictures of my orange cats that inspired the pattern posing with it. It didn't go so well. so Frick and Frack are posing alone. Grouches!

I like to remind everyone that I post pictures on Instagram often, so I've added the link to it below also. It's just too easy to add photos from my phone. I can't believe I'm saying this, but I'll start decorating for fall soon little by little. Can you believe it's about that time of year already? I'll post pictures on Instagram as I get things decorated. I'm almost done with my dining room. I decided to do one room at a time. Doing a little in each room daily wasn't getting any room completely finished, it was driving me nuts! Well, I'm off to work on my next pattern, I hope you all have a great weekend!

Gather Rug Hooking Pattern Beginning to End

 This was a really fun pattern to hook, fall has always been my favorite season on the year. I just wanted to show how I hooked the pattern from beginning to end.
 I started the house in the center of the pattern first. It just made sense to start there.  

 I finished it, then outlined it with one row of my background color before I pulled it off the frame and started in the top left corner.
 I loved the way this wool colored looked as letters. I also covered the back and edges in it.
 I love the way the leaves popped with the background color I chose.
 On to the bottom.
 Here's the newest Prim In The Country employee. His mom abandoned him, but he took to the bottle quickly and grew just as fast. He's totally off the bottle now and still loves laying on the frame while I work.
 After stitching my monk's cloth edging in place, I laid the finished piece on top of the wool I used as my backing, leaving enough to curl up over the edges to stitch in place. 
 You can download the pattern instantly, or get the mailed version with the option to have it traced on red dot tracing fabric, in my Etsy shop. You will find both links below. Now off to draw up Santa.
As always, if you have any questions, please email me anytime, thanks for dropping by!

Cord Finish The Moon's Mistress

 Hello everyone! I wanted to show you how I finished The Moon's Mistress. It looks like I used the cord finish, but I actually made my monk's cloth into my "cord".
This is what it looks like off the frame. I've already done the zig-zag stitch around it with my sewing machine. You can also use a serger, or fray prevention glue. Now I'm going to cut all the way around leaving 2 inches of monk's cloth.
 Now, just roll your monk's cloth and stitch in place. I roll a little ahead and use a pin to hold it in place while I stitch. You could do this and your edging at the same time, but I prefer doing them separately.

 Just keep going all the way around until your finished, then cut out your wool backing. I cover my whole back in wool, and roll it up over the sides.
 Just start rolling it up and stitching in place, cover your "cording".
 Just continue to do so all the way around.



 This is what the back of your piece looks like.
This is what your edging will look like completely finished! You will find a link to The Moon's Mistress in my shops below. If you have any questions or need anything else, please let me know. Thanks for dropping by!

Finishing Pumpkins Eve

 Hello everyone! I've had questions about finishing so I thought I would show you how I finished Pumpkins Eve. At this point, I've already pulled it off my frame. I've zig-zag stitched it with my sewing machine, then cut the monk's cloth 1 inch all the way around. Before you do that, please zigzag it, serge it, or use some kind of fray prevention on your monk's cloth!
Fold all of your monk's cloth under and stitch it in place.
  I covered the whole back of my piece and left enough to fold up over the edges. 
 I start stitching the wool backing up over the edge and stitch in place. As you can see, I only cover the monk's cloth, I don't bring it the rest of the way up to the top of my loops.
 Just turn and keep going until each side is covered.
Then done! I usually only do this on small pieces, it's a cute easy way to finish a piece off. You will find the link to Pumpkins Eves in my shops below. If you have any questions or need anything, feel free to email me anytime, Thank for dropping by!

Rug Hooking Pattern & Red Dot Tracing Fabric

Hello everyone! I've just added my first rug hooking to my Etsy shop. Don't worry punch needlers', I couldn't give up punch needle even if I wanted to, (and I don't). I'll be carrying both punch needle and rug hooking patterns. 

There will be 2 listings for each rug hooking pattern. The 1st listing is for the PDF digital download that you can download instantly. The 2nd is a mailed pattern with the option to have it traced on red dot tracing fabric, in the drop-down menu. I've had some questions about the red dot tracing fabric, so I thought I would show you how this transfer fabric works. When you get your pattern in the mail, the picture will already be drawn on the transfer fabric.
This is what it looks like, you can buy it by the yard. I put it on something dark blue so you could see how thin it is.
I just tape it over the pattern I'm wanting to transfer. Remember, this will already be done for you, I just wanted to show you how it worked from the beginning to the end.
I trace it on with a Sharpie.
All traced, there's a closeup below. This is what it will look like when it comes in the mail if you choose that option.
Now, you just lay it on top of your monk's cloth or linen, and just trace over the pattern with a Sharpie.
Nice and easy, no flipping the pattern over or needing a light source to transfer the pattern. Below are the links to Seeing Stars in my Etsy shop, both the PDF digital pattern and the mailed patter. If you have any questions, I'm just an email away, thanks for dropping by!!!
