The Snowflake fabric has arrived!!! We’ve been cutting kits for Gingerbread Square and Shiny & Brite…they’re on the website ready to go! We’re quickly running out of some of the prints but will be re-ordering them. I can’t help it… it’s always SO EXCITING when it gets delivered!!! My brain starts churning, thinking up new ways to use it! For one thing….I’m going to make new Christmas curtains!….hmmm…If I do THAT, I’ll have to order LOTS more fabric! Hahaha!!!
It’s cold this morning and the autumn leaves are really putting on a show! When I walked into the kitchen at about 8am, I noticed that the pantry was filled with red light! The sun was shining through a maple tree outside and the reflection made the whole room glow! One more reason why Autumn is my very favorite season!!
Anyway, I finally have some time to blog and add something to facebook….so I made a cup of cocoa (with cinnamon roll syrup added!) and here goes!!!! We’ve been crazy busy this…..I WAS going to say “fall”, but the truth is, this entire YEAR! There have been so many new projects and, because of that, responsibilities. Everything just eats up time!
First, we have two new patterns that were just released!
The White Christmas Pillow is very soft and sweet. I LOVE the netting ruffle trim!! Also, any time I can stick a bunch of beads on something I’m happy! Haha! You can add any photo or image you’d like. Just cut it out of an old greeting card or print it out on cream card stock.
The Sunflower Project Folder is a tri-fold that’s big enough to hold a large pattern, hoop & project, and more. If you go on the website it will show you the entire cover (you can personalize it) and the inside in more detail. We’ll have kits for both of these up on the website in a few days (we’re waiting for buttons and beads to arrive).
I’ve been drawing new patterns for next Spring (not Spring patterns….stuff to RELEASE next Spring!) I’ve been trying to draw during the season so there will be more inspiration….Autumn during Autumn…..Christmas during the Christmas Season….etc….. So…. lots of new fall stuff is drawn up already and there’s more in my head waiting to get down on paper!! I plan on drawing ALL AFTERNOON!!!! Bring on a steady supply of Chai and Junior Mints (proven brain foods)!!We had everybody here for the Autumn Retreat and had a GREAT time!!! Every time you all get in the same room together, how can it go wrong??? It just can’t! We don’t make the retreats fun…we just give all of you a place to get together. You’re the ones who make it fun and a success!! Thanks for putting up with our small retreat sizes, waiting lists and reservations! We’ll be sending out information about 2015 before the year is out.
I’m really excited about working with Oklahoma Embroidery Design & Supply to digitize my Gingerbread Square BOM designs. (This is their ad from their website) We’ll be carrying a few of the disks too. Some people have let me know that they’re worried that….if we sell them for machine embroidery….nobody will want to hand embroider them???? I think that’s just crazy! We’re hand embroiderers!!! We love the process! Some people don’t want to do it by hand…the process we love, drives them batty!! Then, there are a few of you who do both. My best friend babysits her embroidery machine while it’s running….she sits by it and hand stitches!! There are plenty of different processes out there for all of us. We all love what we love…….for instance………I bought a big, fancy Bernina embroidery machine last winter………..I’ve made several quilts on it….lots of projects. Haven’t even TRIED to learn to use the embroidery part! LOLOLOL!!!!!!! I wonder if it actually works??? At this rate, I may never find out! HA!!!
Hap, Hap, HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!! From Meg, Laura, Heidi, Jon, Jon, Honeybunny & Flossy Bonyfingers!!!Pin It
