Rosie the snowman quilt
for all your nice comments about our version of Blackbird Designs' "The
Raven" quilt. We are on schedule to start the block of the month in
October. As with any of our blocks of the month, you can start any
time.....we're very flexible.
As many of you know, we often modify patterns but are also designers
ourselves. When we saw Bunny Hill's red and white winter line we knew
we wanted to do something fun with it. Debby designed this darling
table runner. Your "Snow Days" kit includes the pattern, fabric for the
top, and binding. It finishes 49" x 16". Kit is $24.95.
If you don't need a table runner, it would be equally cute displayed on a
wall. What a quick and easy gift for the holiday season!
Another darling snowman kit is "Rosie". She
finishes 18" x 24". Your $29.95 kit includes the pattern, fabrics for
the top, and binding. The pattern also includes instructions for making
a larger version (we'll be happy to help you choose fabrics for the
We were very
excited to learn about a new magazine devoted to wool. "Wool Works"
will debut in January and will be published quarterly. If you'd like to
be sure to receive a copy, please e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org)
or call 479-372-7403 and we'll get you on the list.
The magazine is geared to those who enjoy wool applique, rug hooking or
quilting with wool. Subjects covered will include secrets of dying your
own wool, visits to quilting and hooking guilds, and how to master
embroidery stitches (among many other topics).
Each issue is $10.99.
We love living in the country but must
confess we're never sure what sort of critter we will see. The other
day we were leaving the shop and spotted the oddest looking bird near
our sign. He/she had a brown head and neck and a black body. At first
we thought vulture, then crow, then raven......but we're not sure what
he is. Maybe you'll spot him next time you're at the shop.
We will leave you to think about our critter. See you again next Thursday.
