We're so excited to be featured in Simply Vintage!

If you follow us on Facebook you probably have figured out we are lacking when it comes to the whole Facebook thing.  We can't seem to remember to pop over and update our page but we are really, really going to try to keep it updated at least once a week.  You're probably wondering why we're opening with this discussion of FB........we follow Quiltmania and were blown away when we saw this photo come up on our feed (photo courtesy of Quiltmania).
That's the quilt we designed which will be featured in the Summer issue of Simply Vintage!  Needless to say, we are super excited to share this news with you.  We are taking pre-orders for "Pinwheels and Posies" kits.  $76.95  Let us know if you'd like to reserve a kit.

One of our favorite designers of Christmas themed stitchery is Gail Pan.  Her newest book, Christmas Patchwork Loves Embroidery, is filled with all sorts of cute holiday stitching.  The book is in stock and ready for shipment or to be placed in your folder.  $24.95
While we're on the subject of books, we are taking pre-orders for Kim Diehl's new book "Simple Christmas Tidings".  It's her first Christmas book and looks like a great one.  Below is the book cover followed by photos of some of the projects contained in the book.  The release date is late May; cost is $28.98.  Let us know if we can reserve a copy for you.
Our featured project this week is from Threads that Bind.  We framed ours but it's also very cute when framed.  Your $32.95 kit for "A Gentle Life" includes the pattern, background fabric which we have washed and distressed for you, wool for applique, and binding.  Finishes 7" x 31"
Last but not least -- The Salem Witches #3 block arrived.  Like the other two panels, it is absolutely adorable.  Meg does a wonderful job with explaining what colors of crayon to use to color your piece.  If you're on automatic to receive this pattern set Debby has pulled yours.  If you're not and would like a pattern (or #1 and #2), please let us know.  Pattern is $10
We're working on several new projects and can't wait to share them with you.  Spring quilt market is next week and we are relying on Kay to bring back lots of new goodies.   Shortly after market is the Tulsa quilt show followed by the Wichita show.  We are busily (is that a word?!) preparing lots of kits to pack for both well as several new projects we will debut at the shows.

Hope you get some time to sit back and enjoy this beautiful spring weather.  See you soon.

Darlene and Debby
