Hi! Happy 4th of July to all. Just wanted to tell you I will be closed on Sunday the 4th and I will be open on Sunday July 11 from 11-2.

Also, to those who are doing the Piecemaker/Peacemaker Quilt pattern, the next 3 blocks are here for pickup. For those who might be interested in the chart from JBW, French Country Pig, I did it last night in a little over 2 hours. A real quick and fun project.

Have a safe 4th!

Hi, again....Just arrived from JBW Designs. Two more charts are added to the Christmas Tree ornament series, Christmas Tree Collection V and VI, both with accessories. A new series, to be finished over the rest of the year is Christmas Village I and II. Old fashioned houses and buildings, with accessories, will create 12 ornaments. The French Country series continues with Fr. Country Fleur-de-Lis and French Country Pig. The pig has been requested and she decided to move it up on the list and here it is for all you pig lovers.
Hi, Everyone! I've got a good reason for not posting recently - I had a brief stay in the hospital. Nothing too serious, but bad enough. But I'm back, and still trying to get caught up with things.

Remember, I mentioned a while ago about an upcoming class? Well here is a picture of the project we will be doing. This piece is hemstitched, which will be an option to you. Other stitches in the piece are, of course, cross stitch, inverted fly stitch, closed chevron and long arm cross stitch, satin stitch and needle weaving. This project will be done on 25 count cream linen.

Class will be held on two nights, July 22 and July 29 - Thursday - from 7-9PM. You will practice on a doodle cloth to learn the stitches. Sign up now as space is limited.
