Projects in the works!

Well as usual, time is flying by and I am not where I planned to be in terms of items checked off my 'to do''d think I'd be used to that by now? How can it be nearing October so soon?

Anyway, here is a quick preview of a couple of the items we'll be featuring in our upcoming gifts classes. One is a gift bag/lunch bag/treat bag use your imagination as to all the great things you could fill this bag up with. And the other is a journal cover - very versatile and tons of ways to embellish and personalize it. We thought the travel theme might be good for those keeping a record of their RV trips...but you could also create a cover directed to pretty much any hobby or create one in the style of the recipient for those true journal writers on your gift list.

We've got some additional ideas coming - so think fun, versatile and quick gifts to make for friends or family and have some fun while you're doing it. Check our website for a current class list or stop by the store to see more!

Don't forget - the 91 mile Yard Sale is coming up October 1st & 2nd so reserve some time to get out and scout out some great deals!

Monday the 13th

Well, it must be a good day when we get a new shipment of Jo's fabrics (Spice Chest) out on the shelves, and a customer from another state arrives claiming "Jo sent me"! How good is that timing? The new collection is just in time for fall color and really looks great with the shirtings and ravenwood series we already have on the shelves.

We had visitors from Tennessee, Oklahoma, Colorado and Oregon today, along with several familiar faces from around our local is great to have our regular customers visit and see what's new, and it is fun to share what we're doing here with other like-minded stitchers from outside the area. Thanks for visiting!

Happy stitching!

September Pincushion

Well, here she is, our new mannequin pin cushion for September. This is the smaller version of the 2 sizes in the pattern, so you can even go bigger if you want!

Looks like the rain has arrived just in time for back to school...nothing beats puddles and mud for a good walk to school, don't you think?

We have lots of new fabric we're getting out on the shelves and a few new class samples to show off. Christmas bolts are still arriving so you're not behind on your holiday projects yet! Stop by and see what's new.

The Civil War Tribute quilt is almost assembled, and it is coming together nicely - we still have kits left for this reproduction quilt, so you may want to get that item on your holiday wish list!

Chairs in process

Here are a few fun photos of some of the chairs under construction during our class last Friday. If you click on the photos you can get a closer look at some of the great fabrics and details! It was a great class, and a lot of fun to meet Alethea in person. We hope she'll be back before she is too famous once her book hits the stores this fall!

It is September today, time is flying and we have a sale to get ready for that starts tomorrow, and a variety of class samples to get underway...and a few more fun things to stitch up!!

Hope to see you soon.
