NEW Fall FREEBIE Design for You

We have just added a FREE design for you on our website.  Our NEW fall tea towel design features a nice plump Pumpkin ‘n twisty Bittersweet Vines.

567_Freebie_Punpkin'nVine

Just print out your pattern and have a nice time relaxing while you embroider your new fall tea towel.  The design will also look beautiful on muslin and framed for fall decorating.

I printed the pumpkin on Sticky Fabri-Solvy to stitch.  So quick and easy….I talk about this all the time…give it a try and see how nice it makes getting ready.  MUCH quicker than tracing the design on the towel using your light box!

Enjoy your new FREEBIE design.  We have the Terra Cotta Tea Towel and all the DMC #8 Perle Cotton in the studio ready and waiting for you.

Lighted Willow Branches!

Clever tiny lights attached to Willow Branches

Tuck the willow branch stem into a tall bobbin like our Elegant Silk Bobbin or other handy container. 

Enjoy the soft lights in your home – especially your sewing area.

Both Tina and I are enjoying ours.  The cord is quite long so you can place your perky lights where ever you want.  Sort of like a unique night light in your home!

Back Home After Tacoma, Washington

We had a great drive up and back from the Pacific West Quilt show in Tacoma.  The weather couldn’t have been nicer….sunny and warm everyday!  The show was fun and we met a lot of new gals and greeted many friends we see at Sew Expo in February.  Thanks to all who came to the show.

On the way up and on the way back home we stopped in Kalama, Washington for our shopping spree.  Tina found a wonderful tall metal sculpture for her yard.  I think it will probably be shown off near her fabulous chicken house.  I’ll take new photo of her garden to show you.

We had 2 delicious luncheons at our favorite Antique Deli attached to a couple of antiques shops.  Dhara is the chef and chief cook and bottle washer with a couple of friends.  She makes the most wonderful soups and sandwiches.  We ate at the Deli and then took a BIG container of her chicken salad and a whole loaf of home baked bread in Lucy, the motor home for later lunches – clever.

Antique DeliPlease stop by the Deli if you are near Kalama!  It is only 30 minutes from Portland so we are making our luncheon menu plans for September and the Northwest Quilting Expo.  September 22 – 24.  Yummy!
