Celebrating quiet colors and gentle stitches

Since 2010, we've been on a creative journey.  Our cross stitch designs celebrate our love traditional ways, and of making things by hand.  

The blog

Robin's journal

Robin started blogging back in 2005, spurred on by her love of making and creating by hand. October House first came into being as a blog in 2010, when knitting took over all her waking hours. Now the journal not only details what's going on with October House Fiber Arts, but also whatever crafty and creative adventures Robin is currently enjoying.

All Dogs are Precious

#OH1239

A celebration of our beloved canines! We've used this saying in our family for years, when a neighbor said, “All dogs are precious”. I think the love with which he said it had a lot to do with how it stuck in our memories.

Make a Joyful Noise

#OH1238

Make a Joyful Noise was inspired by my husband and his collection of instruments. He often serenades me as I stitch in the evenings, and I thoroughly enjoy it!

True Blue

#OH1237

Two little smalls in my favorite color. Both would be perfect in your sewing basket, or just as decoration in a dough bowl...or maybe in my case a blue and white bowl!

Home for the Holidays

#OH1236


I love being home during the holidays...well, shoot, I just love being home. Berry baskets and a quaker-inspired hillside make this a fun stitch.
