Working on Scarecrows, Witches and scarecrow e-pattern sale

I have been trying to get some Fall stuff done this week between working on orders for Country Sampler. I made a bunch of the Henry Scarecrows and have just 3 left right now. So I need to get to Walmart and get some more raffia, hope to have a bunch of scarecrows for MacIntosh show.

I am hoping to get some pumpkins done this weekend. I seem to sell every set I get finished.

Hubby is running in a race in downtown Jacksonville this weekend. I will be up there with him tomorrow afternoon, in the heat.

I found this pattern on ebay by Primitive Moosehairs and got 4 of the witches made up. I really like her, I wasn't sure at first. But after she was all finished up, I am in the mood to get some more witches made up. I never have made up witches for my shows, so now thinking I need to make some dolls to go with my fall items.

We are having a pattern sale on our scarecrow patterns this weekend. It will run till Sunday evening. All the scarecrow patterns listed below will be only $3.00 each for the epattern. Sunday evening they will go back up to regular price. So if you are interested, just check the side bar for the pattern.

#411 Preston Scarecrow

#445 Henry

#211 Sammy Scarecrow

#464 Elmer Scarecrow

#212 Scarecrow in a Can

  6. Witches have always been a big seller for me. At my fall show last yr. in Des Moines, IA - I sold out of witches the first day (3 day show), so this year I have 50 started of several different designs - hope to sell out again!!

  7. I love that witch. What a deal. Thanks.

  8. Gosh, Sandy, I get out of breath when I read about how much sewing you've done. The scarecrows all came out
    beautifully. Good Luck with the Country Sampler Ad.
    Warm Regards,
    Susan B., Western MA
    Oh,p.s. I FINALLY got my pictures up and in a post about my gifts from you and Sami. I'm melting
    Kettle Corn right now and loving every minute.

  9. It was the most unique scarecrow I’ve ever seen in my entire life. It was very incredible. You’re such a very creative person. Thank you for this wonderful blog.
