I've been sewing up a storm. Working hard and fast to get my wool samples and patterns finished by Black Friday for the Holiday Craft sale at Karen's. You are going to love what I've been busy creating. Patterns for Wool applique projects (and regular applique too) - Penny rugs! Pillows! Pincushions! Christmas Ornaments! A Mini Christmas Tree skirt! All the new patterns will be available for purchase on my website on Cyber Monday. Here's a little sneak peek - like the pincushions?
(The circle box top pattern is in The Civil War Sewing Circle for those of you who have that book.) Isn't the blue wool flower brooch sweet? Karen made it for me and she'll have some in assorted colors available at her sale. And lots more fun things.
Taking time to stitch small things is a lot of fun for me around this time of year and they always make great gifts for friends and family.
My Christmas stitchery patterns are also still available and make cute hanging ornaments and tags for gift packages.
Reminding you again that there's less than a week left before the Holiday Craft Sale and don't forget - I'll be doing a book signing on Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving. Hope to see some of you local people there. But even if you're in Iowa, Indiana or Wisconsin, do stop by if the weather's nice and you don't mind the long drive.
