NEW Yellow Stripe Tea Towel

We have just posted a NEW color towel from Dunroven House on our website.  A couple of years ago this Yellow Towel was used for our Freebie Mother’s Day towel.   For some reason it was not on our website!

369_FreebieMother'sDay4-2009 Here is the pretty Freebie for Mom….maybe time to get started on this one and be ready to honor your Mom and Grandmom in May!  Just print out the Mother’s Day Tea Towel design.

For your own special design, you can now order the pretty towel with the delicate Yellow Stripe.  The background is a creamy shade and will accent lots of designs you have ready to stitch.

Enjoy the springtime and find some time each day for some stitching….it will relax you!

Home from Sacramento

We had a great show in Sacramento over the weekend.  In spite of high winds, thunder, lots of rain and even hail the turn out was BIG.  After so many days (weeks?) of terrible weather everyone was ready to get out and enjoy the show.

We were right next door to Natalia from MamaShaman’s fabulous hand made shoes and boots.  Of course Tina and I went shopping MamaShamanShoes first thing Thursday morning before the show opened.  We each now have 3 more beautiful pairs of these Mola shoes….boots this time!  SO COMFORTABLE just as soon as you put your tootsies inside.  The Molas are hand made in the San Blas islands and the shoes are constructed in Columbia.  Check out the website for a pair for yourself.  Natalia will be coming to the Long Beach International Quilt Festival in July.  Come see her and Bird Brain Designs too!  You will be happy you came to the show.
