At long last...a new post!

First up, a beautiful new table mat from Primitive Gatherings new book "Christmas Gatherings"
 And some ornaments from the same book...
 A new pattern company for Folktales, "The Birdhouse" from Australia.  They include preprinted fabric with their embroidery patterns so there is no need to trace or transfer the design-you just thread a needle and get started!  This is "Making Spirits Bright".  The pattern is $20.00.  The complete kit is $25.95.
 And here is "My Heart Sings".  The pattern is $20.00 and the pattern with the fabrics is $26.95.  Great gift idea for your favorite quilter or "secret sister"!
 A couple of ideas from Birdbrain Designs' 
"Snow Happens" newest book

 These lovely flannels just arrived fresh from Moda!  The "Sweet Baby" line from Abi Hall is $12.00 per yard.  Charm Packs are $11.00 and Layer Cakes are $44.00, and it is as sweet as it sounds!

new projects complete, new fabrics in stock!

 Both of these projects are from the Bee Company.  The top one is done with embroidery and the bottom one is counted crosstitch.  The top one does NOT include the frame-just the buttons and pattern for $5.20.  The one below includes the pattern, button and frame for $12.00.  Floss and fabric are sold separately.  There are dozens of project ideas available in the shop from the Bee Company.
 This sweet pattern comes from Chickadee Hollow.  I used a Charm pack from "Collette" by Chez Moi for Moda to make it.  It is approximately 16" X 20".  I used Clover's extra small yo-yo maker for the yo yos.
 The "Sweet As Can Bee" Quilt is another project from "Sew Sweet Baby Quilts" 
- the same book the Owl Quilt is from.
 The kit is $52.75 and includes the rick rack and the backing fabric but does NOT include the book,
 which sells separately for $18.99
 And here are just a few of the delightful fabris that have been arriving...

If I ever get finished cutting and folding fabrics for the Row x Row kits and Shop Hop kits 
I will have all kinds of fun!
