Halloween Queens Bootique Offering for February
Hang this fun Witches Boot up anywhere a great piece to add to your Halloween collection. Primitive Needle Punch at it's finest in this new Halloween Flying Witch design.
Miss Batilda is flying around in the gold and orange sky wondering "Witch Way" to go. She is pondering whether she should go east or west? That fun black cat seems to be trying to scare her with his words BOO or maybe he is trying to help her decide “Witch Way” to go.
This is an original design and is my third in a series of primitive Halloween designs that I am creating. This Witches boot is 8" tall and 6” wide. Needle punched on weaver’s cloth with a fun fall palette of colors. I used mainly antiqued DMC floss in the punching of this boot. The backside of the boot is black wool hand sewn to the front. This witch's boot has been stuffed with fiberfill with mustard and maroon pip berries coming out of the top. Did you notice the three rusty tin bells that embellish this boot? The hanger is jute.
Special orders being taken cost would be $65.00 with free shipping

It was funny that I woke up last night and wanted to get up and work on the needle punch project I have started. Usually I am awake pondering artwork stumps. Like how will I work this or that out in a design. But I just wanted to punch some more stitches. I love watching a design develop.
Look for a fun Witches Boot design created for Halloween Queen's Bootique. I am thinking of making these into patterns. Here are a few of the needle punch designs I have created. The last two are free standing dolls.

Rest and relaxation has been my agenda since we celebrated the end of another year of selling pumpkins and then Christmas Trees in Sierra Vista this year. I have read a couple of books that I have been calling my name. Dark Peril by Christine Feehan and Lover Mine by J.R.Ward. Enjoyed both of these books.
We are excited about a visit from our son Marcus. He is flying down late Thursday night.
I am am so excited to say that a McGown Teacher bought my Dimensional Rug hooked Windy Santa. She will be teaching a class on dimensional rug hooking with a Santa theme next November in Texas. My santa will be on display as a reference. How fun in that? Here is the front view.
My mind is moving toward creating mode and I plan to start creating after Marcus leaves. Look for something new for Halloween Queens on Feb. 1. I am already thinking Spring so look for some fun creations to hit the market soon. You all know one of my favorite things is creating black dolls so I am sure there will be a black doll soon.
Stayed tuned you will be glad you did.
