Welcome!

Thanks so much for stopping by to check out my blog! I'm just getting started so please come back often to check on my progress. If you enjoy hand sewing and applique, and are looking for something fun and unique to stitch up, you've come to the right place! All of my pattern instructions are very easy to follow and require basic stitches such as blanket stitch, straight stitch, and french knots. I work mostly with wool and wool felt. The patterns that I have designed are for penny rugs and candle mats. Most are very quick projects with a touch of whimsy. I hope you enjoy your visit and will be one of my faithful followers! God Bless!

Minimum order is 12 patterns in any combination of at least 3 each. Any other questions or comments are welcome too!







About Me

My Photo

New Ipswich, New Hampshire, United States
I love sewing! I started to hand sew when I was in elementary school. Of course over the years I tried many different crafts. My mom taught me to sew, hand embroider, and knit. My grandmother taught me to crochet. What precious memories I have of those times! As much as I've always loved working with yarn, nothing quite compares to my love of making penny rugs. I stumbled across them on ebay and instantly knew I could design my own and be happy stitching them up forever! As time went on, and they started becoming quite popular, people began asking if I made patterns. Well, I thought I would give it a try, and voila! Penny Lane Primitives was born! At the moment I have 45 designs with about a million more in my head! I just wish I had more free time to create. I work full time in the local elementary school in my small New England town. I have 3 children...2 daughters, 36 and 24, a son, 22, and two beautiful granddaughters, 14 and 8. I guess that all makes me sound kinda old huh? Well, it sure doesn't feel that way!

Hello everyone~ Just wanted to let you know that I will be listing a new pattern sometime in the next few days or so.  I am really excited about this one!  It's just soooo pretty!  As soon as I finish all the little details of the pattern it will be ready to go.  It's a runner, and one that I think all of you sewers out there will have to make!  I'm also making a smaller candle mat on the same idea, but that one will be at least another week in the making.  So keep watching!  Can't wait to share it with you!  Here's a little preview.....

Need some 'likes'...

Hi everyone & Happy Saturday!

I recently made a page on facebook for my little business and was hoping to get some 'likes'.  If you are visiting me here could you take a quick second to click on the facebook link to the left and 'like' my page?  Thanks so much and thanks for stopping by! 

While I'm posting...here is a photo of some little stones and a shell that my very talented daughter painted...this is just a small sampling of what she does.  I suggested that she make necklaces out of shells.  Wouldn't that monarch butterfly look pretty hanging from a chain?  The stones make nice paper weights.  Let me know what you think.    

Have a nice holiday weekend! Hope the weather is better where you are than it is here...rain, rain, and more rain!

Long time no blog!  My life has been just one big bundle of crazy in the past year!  Long story short....I am 'at the moment' a cancer survivor!  Yay!  Happy New Year to me and to all of you!  2013 is going to be my year and 2012 just a memory of how life can throw some pretty nasty stuff your way.  How we deal with it certainly defines the person that we are.  My husband has been amazing and for him I am so very thankful.  That being said, I just wanted to take a minute and wish all of you a very Happy, HEALTHY, Prosperous, Wonderful New Year!!!!  Thanks so much to all of you that have helped to make Penny Lane Primitives successful!  I love designing and plan to continue into the New Year and waaayyyy beyond!  My newest will be out in a few days...similar to the Holly & Berries design but with a Valentine theme...who doesn't love Love?  Very pretty and one I so enjoyed making & I'm certain you will too.  Keep watching!  God Bless!

Summer days

Ahhh...summer!  Is there anything better?  I'm just like the kids this time of year.  I wonder why?  Oh, that's right, school's out!  I work in the little elementary school in my town so that means the summer is mine!  But with the good there is always the 'not so good'.  The paychecks come to a screeching halt!  Thank goodness for my little pattern business...it certainly helps to keep us from going totally broke with bill collectors on our heels.  A great big 'THANK YOU' to all my wonderful customers for helping to make this all possible!!!  I hope you are all enjoying your summer days...they pass all too quickly!  Have a great one!

Now it won't stop raining!

I know it's been a long time since I wrote...not much free time on my hands these days!  So now the snow is gone, yeah! And the rain has taken over!  I can't remember the last time I saw the sun!  Usually May is such a pretty month in New Hampshire...not this year.  I have a lot of flowering trees in my yard, and yes, they are still flowering, but they aren't nearly as pretty in the rain and gloom. Oh well, maybe next year.  Oh that's right...there isn't going to be a next year!  Tomorrow is May 21st and the world is going to end!  OMG!  What the heck???  Hasn't this prediction been made just a few times before?  How did that work out?  Crazy people out there.  Anyway, I hope tomorrow works out ok for all of you!  Keep sewing...it will take your mind off the 'end'. LOL ;) Enjoy the music!
