Lots of newsy news!

We've had a lot of new (for us!) projects in the works lately...

Be on the look-out for the new QuiltMania title "Simply Moderne" this summer, as we have a project in it! We've also been patiently awaiting our debut project in the Autumn issue of Primitive Quilts and Projects magazine which will quickly be followed by another in the winter issue.

Who is heading to QuiltCon in Austin? We are!!

It's a super cool quilt show aimed at a more modern audience. Not to say it excludes any quilter or sewist! We attended two years ago and marveled at the new and unusual twists...this year promises to be even better.

Stop in booth #515 and say "hi" and we might just have a little swag for you.

Autumn is almost here!! Even in Texas....

Autumn is my favorite time of year! It could be that my birthday (October) skews things a bit, but Halloween and Thanksgiving are right up there on the list of things that make me happy.

Speaking of those glorious Fall holidays.....

Back to basics.

Last week was spent stitching. Normal right? Well, kind of. I may stitch for a living, but that means whipping out wool applique samples for shows and magazines rather than embroidery these days. Last week I focused solely on using embroidery to define and color a pattern sample which is where I began in the fiber arts industry. I have always LOVED embroidery! I think I forgot how zen it can be to place stitch after stitch and see a beautiful image appear. I will be doing more this week! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
