Lots of information this week
have lots to share this week so will jump in feet first and start
inspiring you.....but......before we begin.....if you recently purchased
a "The Fall Guy" kit from us you may be missing black and white wool.
Please check your kit and let us know. We'll get it right out to you.
Sometimes we feel like this silly frog juggling eggs - we love what we do but sometimes have one too many eggs in the air.
Debby recently finished the most darling
pillow, Flowers in your Garden, that will be perfect for spring
decorating. Your $24.95 kit includes the pattern, fabric for the
pillow, wool for applique, backing fabric, and buttons for
embellishment. We finished ours as a pillow but it would be equally
charming framed (as the pattern designer suggested) or finished as a
small wall hanging. We think it would make a nice Easter surprise for
your favorite stitching friend.
If you'd prefer to use our own supplies, the pattern is available for $9.50.
If you've been in the store recently you've
probably noticed Kay's progress on Scraps of my Life. For those who
don't have the luxury of popping over, we'd like to share.....please
excuse all the threads on our design wall......our design wall truly is
used every day.
Several people have asked how Kay gets her
edges so crisp and how small pieces look so smooth.......hang on......we
are going to share the "secret". Here's a sample of the crisp edges.
She uses water soluble applique paper by
Hugs and Kisses. The paper is semi-transparent which allows for easy
tracing of the pattern; it's also inkjet printable. A packages of 20
sheets is $19.95.
In addition to the paper, she uses a non-slip black mat to help as she
turns the edges. This mat eliminates the need for a sand paper board;
the smooth surface won't damage tools or fabrics. It's easy to carry
and store and can be washed. If you work with beads, this mat will
become your best friend - beads won't roll and scatter all over your
work surface. $17.95
If you'd like to jump in a try this
technique with Scraps of my Life, kits are available for $74.95. The
pattern is sold separately for $27.95.
We've received notice the new Blackbird
Designs book is coming soon. If you've already placed your order for
it, we have you covered. If you aren't on the list but would like to
be, send us an e-mail at email@example.com and we'll get you
on the list. $28
We received our shipment of Primitive Quilts
& Projects Summer issue. As usual, the magazine is filled with
projects to appeal to those of us who adore the primitive look. Kay's
"Picnic in the Park" quilt pattern is contained in this issue. Magazine
is $9.99 and the Picnic in the Park kit is $74.95.
If you're on automatic shipment for the magazine, Debby is processing
your order now. If you're not on automatic but would like to be, let us
know by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have more to share but will wait until
next Thursday since this is getting quite long. See you soon.
