"Laura and Mary slid the button string ...

... into Carrie's stocking"

Laura Ingalls Wilder

On the Banks of Plum Creek


Sold, thank you


I got inspiration from the button string story ...

I loved both the idea of crocheting a button string using my vintage button

and the fact of sewing a little stocking in which I could put the button string.

Happy Stitching my friends !!!!

“Aunt Eliza had brought Ma a large red apple stuck full of cloves.

How good it smelled! And it would not spoil,

for so many cloves would keep it sound and sweet.”

Little House in the Big Woods

by Laura Ingalls Wilder

(Completed cross stitched roll sold, thanks)

Pocket closed


Pocket open 


To make your own pomander,

you’ll need about an ounce of cloves

to cover a medium sized apple.

Push the cloves into the apple.

Laura did not describe any decorations

on her mother’s pomander,

but as for me I decided to add a ribbon to hang

it on a doorknob or a cupboard


Enjoy stitching my dear friends !!!

A rag doll named Nettie ...

 Mary was bigger than Laura, and she had a rag doll named Nettie.

Laura had only a corncob wrapped in a handkerchief,

but it was a good doll.

It was named Susan. It wasn't Susan’s fault that she was only a corncob.

Sometimes Mary let Laura hold Nettie, but she did it only when Susan couldn't see."

Mary and Laura stayed by the fire ...

sewing their nine-patch quilt blocks.


I imagined this pattern while reading this sentence in Laura's book

Little House in the Big Woods

Like Laura and her sisters, as soon as pioneer children could handle a needle,

they were taught to make nine-patch quilt blocks from nine squares of fabric

because they were simple to sew.

A new pattern available


Completed pillow, SOLD, thank you !




  Thank you for visiting and come back often!!
