Our last release for Market is Honey Faire, a good friend and companion to Strawberry Faire, which was our best seller from last year.
Although I didn't know it at the time, Strawberry Faire was the beginning of a series of designs. Oh yes, I have several designs in the works that will continue the "faire" theme for a little bit.
Honey Faire is a sweetly patterned bee skep set among the flowers.

I finished this little pillow pretty much the same way as Strawberry Faire. I even used the same chenille trim by Dames of the Needle in Scorched Linen. I have to say I love their teeny weeny chenille! Filled with polyfil.
Releasing at Nashville Needlework Market - March 3-5, 2023.
You can pre-order this design through your favorite local or online needlework shop!

I'm Robin, the designer behind October House. You've found my blog, where I ramble on about stitching and sewing and anything else that catches my fancy!
I love quiet colors, gentle stitches and making things by hand.
