Primitive Handmades Mercantile New Website and August Update

I was merrily going along, thinking I was on top of the game.....I was sure that this month for the PHM update, I would have multiple items finished and on my page BEFORE the deadline....I began a small rug as one of my new items..It is a design from my Sunflower Doodle Booklet....All was well in my world...THEN...I realized the update was THIS week !!! I was certain it wasn't until next week.....!!! I have 2 calendars in  my studio and my phone and computer.....did I once take the time to LOOK !!!!???????NOOOOOOO ......
So above is the beginning of my rug, which, if I can finish it in next few days, I will add it to my page at PHM....
We have an all new website for PHM now, and have added new artists !!!
We are still in the process of changing the domain locations so, for now just Click Here , and check out all the gal's new creations !!
thanks much !!

My Freebie Pattern in The Wool Street Journal...Another doodle booklet " Jack O' Lantern Party

Wayyyyy back in March, I think, I was talking about my "secret project"....Then things suddenly got even more crazy than they normally are I was asked to do a freebie rug hooking pattern for the Wool Street Journal Magazine. I drew up my design and began to hook it...It is a bit larger than I am used to, so it did take me awhile...
I never posted the finished project on my here it is !! If you click on the wool street journal up above it will take you to their site. Order the current issue for my pattern or better yet, subscribe today.
Teresa of Teresa's Primitive Treasures is also in the magazine and we both have featured articles..It was so exciting to have this opportunity !!!
I also finished up another doodle booklet. This a great Fall/ Halloween Booklet ....It's called " Jack O' Lantern Party"...
Here is a sample of the designs inside.
I don't have it listed on Pattern Mart yet, but if interested in purchasing, just leave a comment and I'll get back to you.
Thanks for taking a peek !!

I LOVE seeing what you are up to .....

I love this Wool Applique that Roberta of Cottonwood Lane Primitives created, using my Freebie Doodle of Jacks in a Row.... I love how she added the Oct. 31st to it !! And the wools she used are divine !! Thank you so much Roberta, for sending the pic and your kind words of encouragement !!
Remember...I would love to see your handiwork using my designs, and I will post them here on my blog for all to see !! I do apologize, as there are a few folks I know I was lax in posting their pics, when things got really crazy here...I am truly sorry !!
I have been busy punching away on my "Everything Fall Sampler " Design...It is almost finished and the pattern will be coming very soon !! Here is what I've finished so far ...

I am going to try and re-vamp my blog again. I want to do something using the fabric I designed through Spoonflower last year. ...going for the Fall look.
