We will be glad when we are back to normal

What a difference a week can make!  Last week we enjoyed seeing many returning friends for the craft fair.  This week if we invited our friends to our home we would have to ask them to bring candles and warm clothes.  We lost power in our homes (we live next door to each other and our mother lives down the street) early Monday morning and are still without power.  So, if you see us in the shop bathroom drying our hair or overhear us discussing the first hot meal we plan to prepare once we have power please indulge us.

Our little neighborhood is apparently low on the priority list for electric service and tree removal (the street to our neighborhood is still blocked by a fallen tree so we have to drive through a neighbor's yard to reach our homes).  We know power will be restored sometime and someone will cut the tree to make the street passable but in the interim we are spending a lot of time at the shop enjoying light and heat......
Since we have been chilled most of the week we thought we would share a couple of snow themed kits this week.  The first, Aubrey Lou, finishes 4" x 8".  We finished ours to be displayed on one of our metal Stix but it would be equally cute finished as a pincushion, bowl filler, small pillow or as an eyeglass case.  Your $14.95 kit includes the pattern, background cotton, wool for the applique and buttons.

Stix are available separately in your choice of 8", 10" or 12" for $4.95 each.
"Wishing for Snow" features mom and dad snowman peering out the window wishing for snow.  Your $41.95 kit includes the pattern, fabric to make the top, wool for applique and binding. It also includes small black buttons, the rusty angel pendant, and rusty star.
Finishes 27" x 27"

If you'd prefer to use your own materials, the pattern is available for $9.
This week for our "when it's gone, it's gone" section, we are featuring "Forest Friends".  The pattern is by Lynette Anderson but we changed the pattern to create a small wall hanging.  Your $26.95 kit includes the pattern with Sew Graceful changes, fabric for top, stitchery stabilizer, binding, backing, and rick rack. Finishes 8 1/2" x 25"
Kay has reorganized the shop and we will share photos in the newsletter next week.
See you soon.
