Spring birds

Have you noticed the birds chirping lately?  Sometimes the sound is almost deafening as we enjoy our walks.  If you live near water you've likely heard the frogs also.  Birds, frogs and daffodils which are showing  means spring is just around the corner.

This week we'd like to share a few kits featuring birds.  We have seen dozens of cardinals the past week and enjoy listening to them call to each other.  We suspect baby birds will soon be on the way.  The "Spring Cardinals" quilt finishes 20" x 20" so is a nice size for a small area in your home.  It would also be a nice addition to an RV.  Your $32.95 kit includes the pattern, fabrics for the quilt top and binding.  The pattern contains two additional patterns for a fall and summer quilt.

This kit is all cotton.
"He Restores" is a combination of wool applique and embroidery on a Diamond Textile cotton background.  Your $24.95 kit includes the pattern, fabrics for the top, wool and binding.  Finishes 14" x 19 1/4".

If you'd prefer to use your own materials the pattern is available for $9.  Please note, we changed the pattern from entirely embroidery to wool applique and embroidery.
Kits are back in stock for Kay's "Friends for Life" kit.  It is designed to be displayed on one of the large metal oval trays; however, it would look like as a table mat.  Your $36.95 kit includes the pattern, background cotton, wool for applique, backing fabric and rick rack.  It finishes 12" x 21 1/2".  If you'd prefer to use your own materials, the pattern is available for $10.

We will be happy to send the metal tray; however, additional shipping fees will be required.
We are very excited to share our friend Deborah Rubles' book, Quilters' Cutting Guide.  If you do much piecing this is a must have resource.  She has figured out the math and provides more than 30 charts to guide you through cutting strips, squares and rectangles.  The book is written for both left and right handed quilters.  As you can see, it's spiral bound (yay!!).  Best of all, no specialized rulers are required.  $28.99
This week for our "when it's gone, it's gone" section, we are featuring a sewing case designed by Lynette Anderson. We have one kit left for the Willowhouse Needlecase.  The kit includes the pattern, fabrics for the case, wool for applique and tape measure which you will learn how to cover.  

$29.95 - please e-mail to reserve your kit
We will soon be packing for the Dallas show.  We are happy to be your personal shopper.  Please e-mail by March 10 with items you'd like us to bring.

See you soon.
Darlene and Debby
