HAPPY NEW YEAR!

26 Jan

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL !!!

Busy, Blessed, and Joyful was the Christmas holiday with family.  Sharing the year’s events, playing volleyball, chasing each other on go carts, and eating, of course!

But I admit I’m anxious to get back to the sewing machine with all the new designs popping around in my head, like a new t-shirt quilt pattern, tablerunners, and baby quilts.

Shipped off lots of patterns for a test run in two national stores, so am thrilled at the possibilities that could bring, including the cross pattern above.    I’m to teach a class at Picket Fence Quilt Company  on crayon tinting/embroidery coming soon.  Bought a brand new box of crayons just for that project – too fun!  Have the coloring done, now must go upstairs and prepare to get started with the embroidery.

Joyful Stitching to you!

NEW PATTERN COVER DESIGN

17 Dec

 

 

   Just in time to start the New Year, I’ve had my pattern covers re-designed.  I love the results of the houndstooth pattern I chose.   I’m hoping it will give a great jump start to one of the opportunities that came from Houston Market.  As soon as I know more,  you’ll all be the first to know!   Let me know if you like the new look. Joyful Stitching!
