Merry Christmas!

Dec 24, 2014

I really wanted to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and also hope those of you who also celebrate Hanukkah had a very nice eight days of light. I had a Jewish friend once who would get very upset if I did not give him Christmas Cookies and wish him a Merry Christmas. Once he told me his mother told him he needed to come home for Christmas, I reminded him he was Jewish and he said it didn't matter- he was to be home for Christmas. It is nice we can all celebrate the different holidays.

Just finished the latest blog entry, I should remember to do them in word first so I can cut and paste but I did not and so I have to type it again. We have been very busy cutting fabric for our first show of 2015--West Palm Beach, Florida, January 8-10. Somehow I thought two months between shows would give me LOTS of time to get ready. Just a reminder the shop will be closed that week.

We have new Hummingbird fabric and have made a wall hanging using our Starlight pattern.

When I tried to link to this pattern I realized it wasn't on the site--another notation on that 'list'

We also have a Pansy panel and from that have made a table runner.

This was a 'cut as you go' pattern because I couldn't decide what pattern I wanted to use.

Finally we have started on our Valentine's Day wall hanging, it also needs a pattern but is easy enough to work out. The hearts are 6" squares and the bars around the heart are 1 1/2" x 6" with 1 1/2" red and green squares.

Our Etsy store has been linked to the web site on the 'Handcrafted Gifts' page. Check it out for some more ideas.

Also just in is an Easter print on Cream background. My next project is to make a table runner with this print.

Please have a very Merry Christmas and a Safe and Happy New Year,
