We were recently approached to participate in a local shopping blog highlighting Whatcom County crafters, knitters, and quilters. I met Teresa Schmidt last week for a quick photo shoot and she combined these pictures and details about our shop! Thanks Teresa!

Have you seen the latest treats from French General? We stitched up this wall hanging, just in time to solve the riddle...what's red and cream and quilted all over?!
This simple heart is from a Pattern designed by Blue Elephant Stitches and uses charm squares. For our version we opted to go with smaller squares - a perfect mix of red and chocolate?

Well this is sewing weather for sure, now that schedules are settling back into a routine and new years resolutions are accomplished (?!).....it must be time for a fabric fix, don't you think?

We are busy moving things around, putting holiday fabric away and switching out our palette from red and green to more red and white! We have lots of new fabrics starting to appear on the shelves and more new project ideas underway.
We have layer cakes and jelly rolls for this beautiful Laundry Basket group. Pre-cuts are a great way to get more variety and a head start on a project you can whip up at your next sewing retreat!
Hmmm...pillowcases, aprons or just dreaming of summer?

Congratulations to the favorite clue challenge entries and...thank-you for participating in the challenge and/or coming in to view the projects and voting! We put all the accurate guesses for the who, what, and where into a hat, and drew a name, so we have 3 winners!
We loved all the entries and hope you had fun, thank-you again to everyone for participating!!
Although we had several accurate guess's and one customer correctly solved the mystery for 6 of the 7 entries...we drew one name for a prize. Joan was the lucky sleuth, along with viewer's choice winners Yvonne and Maddie. Their projects are shown below.
|Viewers Choice Winner- Most Innovative Interpretation of Theme|

This Pies n' Tarts work-in-progress is coming along...it is a slow process, perfect for savoring the luxury of time for hand-stitching. It is growing row by row and I 've got a few few more tarts to applique down and another few circles ready to put onto blocks. Watch for more in 2015!

Tree of Life Palampore Panel
By Mary Koval for Windham Fabrics
This reproduction is an excellent example of a typical Palampore hand painted in England ca. 1775. It combines a complex and elaborate design depicting a wide variety of plants, flowers and birds. The “tree of life” motif is typical of most palampores and is used as a symbol to celebrate birth, marriage and special occasions.
