QUICK Christmas Gift Idea

I just stitched up one of our RedWork Ornament designs on a Flour Sack towel.  It only took a couple of TV shows to embroider and I was finished.OrnamentOnTowel   Using our small design motifs will get a bunch of holiday gifts ready in short order….have some fun getting ready too!

The designs, of course, are perfect for ornaments, too.  Make goodies to add to your tree or tie an ornament on a special present for a special person this year.

We have the Flour Sack Towels on our web site I used to embroider the little Santa face.  They are just like those from the “olden days” that the Days of the Week designs are stitched on.    On our website, buy 6 towels and get the 7th FREE…have some holiday fun everybody!

Back from Portland, Oregon

We had a great show in Portland showing off lots of fall and Christmas stuff.  The shoppers were getting in the mood for all the fun times on the way!HolidayShow The booth looked great and we had a fun time.  The weather was nice until we started home on Sunday….it didn’t matter except that our windshield wipers had a collapse.  Spraying the glass with Rainex sort of works but wipers are better!

We are getting ready for Pomona and the Quilt, Craft and Sewing Expo in just a week.  It is at the Fairplex October 7-9.  Come see us there, please.

Leaving for Portland, Oregon

We came home yesterday, Sunday, from the San Mateo show and repacked Lucy in the afternoon.  We are just finishing up stuff here at the studio and will leave and head up I-5 to Portland, Oregon.

The NorthWest Quilting Expo was fun last year -  our first time as a vendor.  We have our normal bigger space this year and are looking forward to 3 busy days.  We set up (the busiest 4th day) on Wednesday and are open for business Thursday – Saturday.  Come visit!  September 23, 24, 25.

511_BooCatPinCushion We are bringing all our Christmas and Harvest designs for you to see.  Here is one of our new favorites, The BOO Cat pin cushion and her companion Mouse Emery to sharpen your pins and needles.  Fun and different for your sewing table!

Holiday Nine-Patch Finished

The NEW RedWork Holiday Nine-Patch I was working on last week is now finished.  I took the photo yesterday and had the instructions printed – it is to go!514_Nine-PatchRedWork

Nine FUN holiday motifs are embroidered inside a border to help you decorate for the up coming (too quickly!) Christmas time.  The nine-patch can be finished as a nice wall quilt as shown or you can make it into a pillow by filling the red and white backing.  Either way it will look great and festive.

Fill up your Christmas tree by making each of the “patches” into a little ornament.  Check out the NEW pattern in our Christmas Category on our website.  Our Holiday Nine-Patch RedWork  joins lots of other goodies you might like too!

Lucy Has A New Dress!

Our lovely, big motor home and work truck, Lucy, is sporting a new look.   Her “old clothes” were removed and a new outfit put on the 2 sides and back, too, with a little something to announce our arrival on the front.Lucy'sNewClothes

We just love the new rig – very special.  So special I was taking a close-up to show you the logo and saw mis-spelling!!  Can you see it?  We are the Bird Brains but we didn’t do this one.

The graphics fellow is coming to my house on Sunday to fix her up.  Can’t wait for all of you to see our charming new motor home!
