It's feeling like Fall

What a surprise as our weather went from sweltering hot to balmy temperatures but we are loving the cooler weather.  It reminds us fall is just around the corner.  This week we'd like to share a couple of fall themed projects to help as you transition from summer to fall decorating.

If you've been a fan of the primitive look for very long you're probably familiar with Cheri Payne (Quilts by Cheri).  We were saddened to learn of Cheri's cancer diagnosis but happy to report the treatments seem to be working.  Cheri closed her web store several weeks ago but before she closed we bought several of the patterns that have been on our "to do" list for many months.

"Ever Thankful" finishes 18" x 19" so is the perfect size for a side table accent or to tuck in a small space in your kitchen, bathroom or bedroom.  Your $29.95 kit includes the pattern, background fabrics, wool for applique, borders, and binding.  Once these are gone, we won't be able to get more.  The pattern is not available separately.
"Happy Jack" is a fun little piece that can be framed, finished as a pillow or as a small wall hanging.  Your $9.95 kit includes the pattern, background cotton and wool for applique.  Please note fabric and wool in the kit is slightly different from the photo below.....but we think you'll be very pleased with our replacement choices. 
Darlene and Tami have been busy playing in the wool dye and have dyed up a pretty batch of wool.  We don't have (and don't plan) to have our wool on our website.  It's an almost full time job keeping the website updated with what is on it -- if you are looking for specific wool, please contact us.  We will be happy to be your personal wool shopper and mail it to you.
We have a full fall schedule of shows so are in preparation mode for them.  Although it only feels like fall, Kay will be at the Gone to Pieces Quilt Guild in Wagoner OK on Aug 14 where she will be sharing her love of working with wool.

We'll be back next week with a new project that we think will surprise you.   See you soon.

Darlene and Debby
