Driving into our little prairie town you find a main street with yellow ribbon signs with names of the military men & women currently serving our country and an American flag flying on every light pole. Simple and nice. We, like many of you, have friends and family who have, and are serving our wonderful country. It's important that we all take a moment, especially today, to thank them and their families for the sacrifices they make to keep us free.
Yes-we have hopped on the holiday train (beings it's November now) and have some new samples, some for just the winter season, and some more holiday specific.
The wool nativity stitchery is a Little Bits by Joan and is a very quick sampler to stitch up.
Lots of new winter woolies.
The reddish/pink gift box can be used as either a ornament for your tree, or you can add a pocket on the back and add cash or gift cards for the gift giving season.
The center of the photo of the snowman with the trees is a little woolie that can hang on a six-inch Ackfield frame, will fit on our Penny Around base, or can easily be used standing alone. The pattern for him is by Jana at Thistle Seed Primitives in Walker.
The snowman pictured at right, is another by Darci that has a few different functions as well. It can be hung on a five or six inch Ackfield hanger, or the back can be left open and you can put in your i-phone, cell phone, glasses, etc., or it too can be left to stand alone.
The ornaments at the top are the cutest snow family in town! The pattern is by Rachel T. Pellman and it creates a mom, dad, daughter, son, cat & dog to adorn your Christmas tree. The ornaments are super quick to stitch up and are great to use up some of your scrap pieces.
Now. . . some new fabric arrivals!
Who knew the little dog in our last post would get to be so popular!!
For anybody looking to make a male in their family a quilt (and has found it difficult to locate fabric that is not full of flowers) may be able to find this suitable for a project. It is filled with hunting references and will be an easy pull for adding in other earth tone colors.
Check back for the progress of Darci's quilt!!
We were feeling fortunate to get some of the wonderful
This is a fabric line that both of us gals have been in love with. It has fabulous & rich color tones to play with and Lacey has absolutely been enjoying sewing her project up with it. . .
. . .here's a little teaser until Lacey gets the quilt top and borders finished! It's been really popular for those who have seen it in progress so you'll want to make sure you see the finished result :)
Until next time remember
