January Winter Special!

HAPPY NEW YEAR my quilter friends!
For January, I am offering a wintery special over on my website so pop over and choose your free design!

These two sweet little designs are now discontinued so the sale will expire January 31st or when supplies run out.

On the left is Bloomsicle.  This was a fun little abstract winter bloom designed in EQ5. It is a 24" Wall Hang so it goes together very quickly.

On the right is Penguin Olympics.  This is a Hawaiian-style applique table runner done in fusible and measures 36" x 16".

There are lots of patterns to choose from on the website and once your order comes through, I will contact you via the email you have given to hear your choice:)

HAPPY 2013!

My wish for 2013 is that we all find a measure of happiness in it. Whether it be with your family or through your work or taking up a new hobby, life is way too short to not BE happy and it is your choice to do so.

 I spent my holidays watching Dr Who mini marathons with my family and starting Downton Abbey with my daughter.  Happiness, to me, comes in many forms; but one of the most enjoyable, is tv viewing with stitch work in my hands.  I kept busy with fun new stitch patterns for this coming year:)
On Christmas Eve we walked around our town's pond where hundreds of luminaries had been lit with messages for family and friends.  We even found one for our Coasties.  It is a beautiful tradition that is enjoyed by many in the town.  Let's keep them in our thoughts all year long!
