One Of Our Patterns Was Featured On

Sometimes when it rains it pours.

And, sometimes it's just a delightful sprinkle.

Well, the month of September has been a delightful sprinkle for Linda Walsh Originals. Not only were our Victorian "Ladies" written about by Elizabeth de Almedia who is the N.Y. Doll Collecting freelance writer for the, but one of our patterns was published on the website and blogged about in the Favecrafts blog.

To give you a little history behind our pattern being published last May Christine Doheny, who is the editor of (which is published by Prime Publishing LLC) emailed me and said she had run across one of my Uncle Sam dolls that had made her smile. She asked if I would be interested in contributing a craft project, tutorial, or tip to or contributing something as a guest blog on the Favecrafts blog.

When I had a chance to respond I sent her back an email thanking her and asking her which Uncle Sam doll she was referring to as I have a LOT of websites and blogs! LOL LOL Ya think! LOL LOL But, I might be interested and asked her for more information on what was involved and how much time it would take. As always - I had a lot on my plate! LOL LOL

In any event we corresponded back and forth a few times and I finally decided since it was my favorite time of the year - Fall - that I would send her my "Punkin Ornaments Are We! A Trio of Ornaments" pattern and did so last week.

Well, I'm excited to tell you that it was published on at the beginning of this week. If you'd like to see it please CLICK HERE. Or just go to the website and click on Holiday Craft then Halloween Crafts and then go to page 4. Scroll down to the middle until you see the following:

Colorful Pumpkin Ornament

Linda Walsh is here to teach us to make colorful pumpkin ornaments. Using felt, flannel and fabric you can create these wonderful Halloween crafts in no time. This is a great free sewing pattern and you can make a trio of them.

She also told me I could post about it on their blog so I, of course, agreed. A chance to blog and I not take advantage of that! You'd have to be kidding! LOL LOL If you'd like to see my post on their blog please CLICK HERE.
