How cool are our customers????

Irma Sefers made an excellent variation of our Haunted Tail from the current issue of Primitive Quilts & Projects magazine!! She has added her own house number to the pattern and made a flat version rather than a stuffed cat. Very creative!! I was so pleased to see her finished project.

Wooo.... Summer.

Parents: Are ya ready for the school year to begin?? You know what I mean, right? Please tell me I'm not alone!

Keeping this boy busy all summer is wearing me out. When he started kindergarten last year I was beyond excited to have 6 uninterrupted hours, 5 days a week to work. I missed him, of course, but we were all gettin' stuff done! It was amazing and then wham! Summer break. In Texas, school is out in May and the break lasts through August. That's a long, long time to keep a six-year-old busy, active, learning, and not glued to the television or iPad. We were doing well for the first month, before it was "center of the earth" hot. It was 105° yesterday. Now, he's a little bored. We'll make it, obviously, but the school year will be most welcome!

I have had time to stitch up a few new goodies to show you.....

Dallas, Texas on my mind

Many of you know the home of Punkin Patch Craft Designs is north Texas.
And you may have seen the news about police officers being ambushed by snipers last night.
In north Texas.

Our hearts are so heavy this morning. Heavy for our community and for all of law enforcement.
Whatever your political opinions and affiliations, every person "matters", families lost members who are important to them, and snipers shooting people is not a "protest" of any kind.


Let's do what we can to encourage humanity and sanity today, ok?

Did I just see a ghost??

Do you want to see ghosts, too? Ok, how about cute wooly ghosts and a black cat? That sounds better! This spooky kitty is in the autumn issue of Primitive Quilts & Projects magazine and we have kits available. If you subscribe or already have a copy, you'll need a materials-only kit for $28. If you need us to include a copy of the magazine, you're price will be $38. We'll even waive shipping! Time to get stitching!!
