Here is a wonderful primitive staple for your home! A simple design of a full weeping willow tree and two olde black crows perched on the roots of the tree. I did my stitching on a wonderful piece of coffee dyed old linen. This great frame can stand or be hung up by the sawtooth hanger. Simply remove the stitchery from the back of the frame and switch it around. The black distressed frame has glass and the measurements are 14" wide x 9 1/2" long and the base/shelf is 2 1/2" deep. It will come signed, dated and copyright 2009.
Cost is $55.00 (includes USPS priority mail shipping)***SOLD***
I had a lot of fun making this primitive willow tree sack! I used an old linen towel to make the sack, there are even a few small tear holes on the towel to add to the charm. I hand stitched a small weeping willow on the front and then heavily aged it with coffee. There is a aged draw string, 2 rusty bells, a skeleton key and hang tag attached by rusty safety pins. I stuffed the sack with a bunch of Sweet Annie. The sack measures about 8 1/2" long x 7" wide. It is signed on the back by me. This little bag looks so cute hanging from a hook, peg nail or knob.
Cost is $22.00 (includes USPS priority mail shipping) ***SOLD***
I designed and hand stitched this small willow tree off to the side. It was worked on an old piece of coffee dyed linen. This black distressed frame can be used standing or can be hung up by the sawtooth hanger. All you need to do is take the stitchery out from the back of the frame and flip it. The measurements are 7 1/2"wide at the base/shelf and 5 1/4" tall, and there is glass. It will come signed, dated and copyright 2009.
Cost is $24.00 (includes USPS priority mail shipping) ***SOLD***

I designed and hand made this little hanging stitchery book. I have cross stitched a tiny willow tree along with the year '1803' on coffee dyed counted thread. I frayed the edges of the stitchery and glued it on top of a little composition notebook and covered it with old looking blue and cream paper. I stained up a piece of green ribbon and ran it up the side of the book and fastened it with a rusty safety pin. I then ran a rusty wire through the ribbon to use as a hanger. A little rusty bell is attached to the wire. The little book measures a very small 3 1/4" wide x 4 1/2" long, my initials are on the back. A sweet little book for hanging on a peg nail or knob.
