Who's Ready for Fall?!

 Can you believe it is almost September? Where did the Summer go! We have finally cooled off here in the midwest with temps in the low 80's. We sure could use some rain. It's been probably close to 3 weeks since our last rainfall. 

So I've been busy sewing these adorable giant Acorns! Made from recycled wool and cotton canvas. 

 These are perfect for shelf decor or on a tiered tray!

You can find these in my Etsy Shop here ---> Rock River Stitches

 Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day!

Birds of a Feather Flock to Together

Ever think about that phrase? It's like what we all are doing right now. I love creating these sweet birds. Perfect size to use up fabric scraps I have an abundance of! Many are made from fabric I bought many years ago. Wish some of the fabric was still available.

Birds are looking for their new forever home. They can be found in my Rock River Etsy Shop

My Lily of the Valley is starting to show off!

 And yesterday, in the mail I received some very special plants from a dear friend. I had mentioned I loved her pink Lily of the Valley in her Instagram post. And just like that, she said she would be happy to dig up some plants from her garden. I was beyond thrilled to receive them. 

Aren't they gorgeous! I am so grateful to have some very special friends on Instagram.

Well, that's all the news for now. I hope you are all having wonderful Spring weather!

Peace and Love to all!

Staying Home and still doing good

Hubby and I are doing just fine with the quarantine. We've always been homebodies, well especially me! I keep busy with my sewing and photography and hubby with his woodworking small projects. He loves to make things for the grandkids. Not sure when we will see them again. I do hope soon. 

Anyway here are a few new items in my Rock River Stitches etsy shop

The weather has been warming up and did manage to get outside the other day and do a little yard work! Can't wait to plant flowers. Will be a little different this year in purchasing flowers. The local nursery will have online purchasing and then curbside pickup. Which I am perfectly fine with!

And a reminder I have 15% off all my pillows in my Red Oak Images Etsy Shop

Stay safe my friends. Peace and Love to all!

April Showers in March

Hello, my friends! I hope you are doing well with this virus that is so out of control. Staying home hasn't bothered me one bit. I'm a bit of a homebody anyway. Just keeping busy with new and old projects!

One of the new is this Primitive Chickadee Bird!

And I have a brand new Pattern too for this sweet bird, as well!

We had terrible thunder storms pass through here last night and dumped 4" of rain! Needless to say....our basement is flooded. Expecting another storm later this afternoon with possible tornadoes. When it pours!

Thanks for stopping by and wishing you all stay healthy. Bless You my friends.

Vintage Tablecloth Pillow Covers

I've been doing a little Spring cleaning in my sewing room. I found a drawer full of vintage tablecloths, I bought many years ago for a project. So here is what I decided to do with those cutter tablecloths. Turn into pillow covers! I really love how they say Spring Decor!

I have them listed in my Etsy Shop at Rock River Stitches

The back is made with cotton canvas with an envelope style closure.They measure 18" x 18"

I added vintage lace and navy blue ticking to some of them.

I also have these cutie pillow covers!

Hope the weather is warming up where you are! Thanks for stopping by!

Can hardly believe Fall is just weeks away now. My how time flys!

I've been busy sewing as usual. Have a couple more new pillow covers in my etsy >> Rock River Stitches
