Christmas already? Let's go to Houston first, ok?

Fall is my favorite time of year so I certainly don't want to skip ahead to Christmas just yet, but....

Have y'all seen this? The winter issue of Primitive Quilts & Projects is gorgeous, as usual. Thinking about making gifts or ornaments for this holiday season? They've compiled some really wonderful patterns.

Oh yeah, we're on page 24! Let me know what you think?

Back to fall for just a moment. One of the best things about fall for quilters and sewists has to be Houston International Quilt Festival!
Are you going? We are!

Please stop by and visit with us in booth #2509.

We'll have loads of hand dyed wool and new patterns & kits.

Just in.....

I just got a case of magazines from those gals at Primitive Quilts and Projects and boy is this a great issue or what?! We are proud to be featured along with some other incredibly talented designers in this fabulous edition. Please check with your local quilt shop or bookseller to purchase one! Better yet, come see us at our next show and get a copy with a kit for Autumn's Gold.

Punchneedle & Primitive Stitcher Magazine

Punchneedle & Primitive Stitcher Magazine.

Have y'all seen this?? This amazing new magazine had to print it's premier issue THREE TIMES!
I can totally see why. It is full of slow-stitching projects I actually want to make and keep. Lots of beautiful designs in cross-stitch, punchneedle embroidery, and even rug hooking. I do hope you will subscribe to this quarterly, that way you won't miss our contribution in the January issue!

Happy stitching!

Back to sewing......

July 4th was busy and fun! We very much enjoyed our local parade, a visit with family, barbecue, and a huge fireworks display. Hope your day was equally wonderful and filled with celebration! Now that everyone has slept in and recovered slightly (thank goodness for coffee!) let's talk sewing.....

Last week, the finishing stitches were added to our next two projects for QuiltMania editions. Please keep checking your local bookstores and quilt shops for Simply Moderne, Simply Vintage, and QuiltMania magazines!! We really do appreciate your support.

Shhhh.....lean in close.....are you ready for a lil secret?
Are you listening?
The design is complete for our very first block of the month pattern. That means we'll be super busy stitching blocks and building a gorgeous quilt over the next few weeks. We hope to have it ready for Houston International Quilt Festival. There will certainly be some sneak peaks here, on Instagram, and on Facebook so follow along!
