New Items...Just in time for Christmas!

Never a dull moment around here! We had our first measurable snowfall this past Saturday. Not much, just little over a inch and a half. Early for snow for us. 

Enough about weather. Not to fond about winter.hehe

Here are a few new items that are in my etsy shop! 

I cannot get over how cute this Teaspoon Mouse ornament is! It's made with a pattern by Pam Gracia of Soft in the Head. She is such a talented artist! You can visit her Etsy shop here ---> Soft in the Head


I've managed to create a few more coin purses in between other items I'm working on.




Have a wonderful Tuesday and stay warm!

Christmas is Right Around the Corner!

I'm in the Christmas mood for sure in my work studio! Santa's, Reindeer and Christmas Trees are being created! 

The Reindeer is something new for this year. He was a little challenging but I was successful first time around! He is made of tan wool that I found at the Goodwill for a bargain price of 3 yards for $4.85!! Someone who obviously was into sewing had dropped off a ton of fabric at the my favorite Goodwill. 



I had several requests for more of my Santa Dolls after my feature on Etsy. I have one left in my shop now.


And I had posted on Pinterest the pattern for my Primitive Christmas Tree Make Do's. They turned out to be a huge repinned item. Received several messages wondering if I make the finished item for the trees. So I have been busy making these trees. 


All of these items can now be found listed for sale in my Etsy shop here ----> Rock River Stitches

That's about it for now. Time to get back to sewing! Have a Wonderful Weekend!

Primitive Scrappy Birds!

These sweet birds are now finished! I am adding them to my etsy shop today. A few are already there to purchase.



Stop in at my etsy shop here Rock River Stitches to see them!
They stand 5" tall and are 7" long. They stand on cute rusty wire legs. Love creating these guys from the huge lot of fabric scraps and vintage lace. Their beaks are from a whittled twig. Perfect I think!

I still have several Halloween items that can be purchased! I always get my orders out the same day or next day after purchasing.



Among the Halloween are these birds! Seems today's post is all about Birds! Which I adore!

Check my Etsy shop for them as well!

Happy Monday my friends!


If you are looking for Beautiful unique jewelry this holiday season, Please stop by my daughters Etsy shop here Becca Ann's Bits










Her shop is fairly new. Please have a look and give her a like! Very reasonable prices that can't be beat!

Some Quiet Time Now

Things have settled down now after the big Feature on Etsy a couple of weeks ago. I was crazy busy packing up sold items and answering emails. Even after my time was up for being featured, the sales kept coming in the rest of the week. I sold over 3/4 of the finished items I had made and tons of patterns!

So now I am trying to build up the inventory in my shop for Christmas. I'm officially done with creating for Halloween. 

Here is my last Halloween item I finished the other day. It's now for sale in my shop.



It's made from a very old pattern of mine from 2008. I had only made one finished item back then and since then sold many of the pattern. To see this cutie go to my etsy shop here Rock River Stitches Etsy Shop


This sweet gal, I just listed today! She is available in my shop now.



I'm working on a few of my little scrappy birds right now. My last one sold during the feature. These are of past birds that have found their forever homes.



I believe the Fall Color around here is close to peak. Took a fantastic walk this morning in the fog and got some amazing photos!




And even found this spiderweb with dew on it!


I'm still mastering the skill in photographing spiderwebs. Very tricky.

Well that's all for now. Please stop back soon! I should have some of my birds ready!

I'm A Etsy Featured Artist!

Wow...A lot has happened since my last post!! A few days after posting on my blog I find out that Etsy has chosen me to be a Featured Shop on Oct. 3rd! I never thought in a million years that they would choose me!

So that is where I have been since the end of August. Getting ready for the big feature! I have been sewing like crazy to get my shop filled with primitive goodies!

So head over to Etsy and see my interview on their homepage! You can find my feature at the top right hand corner. Etsy Homepage or go to Etsy Blog


I have a few new holiday items. New Snowmen and Santa dolls. 



Sorry this post is so short...I must get back to work! It's been a little crazy since Friday. My last full day of being featured is today. But you still can see my feature after Monday in the list of Featured artists on Etsy.
