Ewe Old Bags - Prairie Satchels

Many of you that do not KNIT have asked if this pattern could be revised to include making these fun prairie satchels using pre-felted wool...........and, HERE IT IS!
The pattern includes both knitting and stitching methods to have each of these bags.
Both ways use the same hardware, leather straps, fabric requirements for lining and pockets, all templates for each seasonal applique and amounts to use......!  Order your pattern today and you can make all of these fun satchels for yourself and family members. 

The newly revised patterns are not in the quilt shops nor with any distributors at this time, but should be later this spring.  They can only be ordered from my website or by emailing me directly until that time.

As designers we are always interested in what you'd like to have.  Enjoy!

KEEPING UP.............

I get up every morning saying the same thing....."Try to keep up Lynda!" and, then I must admit, I go to bed every night saying...."Well, that didn't happen today, perhaps tomorrow?"

I have two announcements to make that are over due....
Your FREE pattern is on the way to you!

Remember, everyone that has a birthday in the month of March can order and receive 25% off your total order - the end of the month is near so take advantage today!

A very Special Thank you to everyone that participated.
I turned in the total to Jennifer Keltner last week
256 pillowcases were made
which are being donated to various charities around the country.
100 were made by Kathy and her two sisters
150 were made by Lynn Ray's Quilt Guild
6 were made by Jean Fisher

I did hear back from several people after the total was sent in.  These will be turned in to American Patchwork and Quilting as well.

Sharon - 2
Gayle - 3
Carol - 12

The pillowcase challenge is an ongoing project with American Patchwork and Quilting and although my part has ended anyone who wants to participate in this project, you only need to make the pillowcases and send in your total to them.
Again, thank you to everyone that participated!  Together we can all make a difference.

Mother Nature hasn't been kind this winter to so many folks around the country...and even here in Florida we had more cold than someone with sand in their shoes likes!  However, yesterday and today was just picture perfect as far as the weather goes....lots of sunshine, windows open and lots of breeze to blow away the cobwebs!  The grass is getting greener every day and the trees are all budding like crazy.  We can only hope that no more cold will come and turn all this great stuff upside down.  The gold finches are still here and I'm trying my best to keep up with the amount of food they can actually eat!  Sent the robins on their way up north with lots of rest and a full belly so be watching for them.   Saw a Flicker for the first time on Friday and I've never seen any bird's wings (actually the underpart of their wings) as  canary yellow as theirs are.  I couldn't take my eyes off of him he was so pretty.  Sorry, just got caught up in the moment there.

The reason I'm writing to first to say a GREAT BIG THANK YOU to my friend, Carol Crago for helping me out with some new quilts for spring. She delivered them to me Saturday morning.  They turned out wonderful and  I hope to show you all of them very soon.  I'll be finishing up some borders this week, making backs for all the new quilts - there will be 4 and I'll be working on a surprize that will be introduced by me for the first time. 

I hope everyone is enjoying some spring like weather and I'll be back soon to let you in on what's coming your way!!! 

Until next time,

If so, let me know what date your birthday is BEFORE the March 15th drawing....also, let me know which pattern you'd choose IF you are the winner of the drawing!  I'll just send it to you FREE of charge to help you celebrate your birthday!

Good luck!

I love sharing....

Good Morning!
It's a beautiful day here in Florida.  Cool and just perfect to sit out on the porch with my first cup of coffee.  The gold finches are here by the dozens.  For such little birds they really do eat alot.  A couple of days ago I posted that we said good bye to the robins and really felt they had left the area.  But, sitting on the porch yesterday evening, another flock of them came for a visit.  I have so enjoyed them visiting this year.

But, that really isn't the reason for writing this morning.........I just received some very fun pictures from LuAnn Leonard and Angela Brady.  I've posted the pictures on the parlor room page of my website for everyone to see. 

LuAnn sent me a picture of her Purl.   My purl has several new cousins and I just know they will be as helpful to their maker's as mine is to me.  Purl never lets me down.

Angela from Homespun Decor and Antiques in Ash, North Carolina sent me 3 pictures of samples she's made for her shop.  The pictures are of The Bundling Board, Slim Pickins and a Tisket a Tasket.  Here's a link to get you to the right place to view all of them.  While you are there - you might want to see all 25 pages of pictures of quilts others have made from my pattern line. 

We all see things so differently so I hope you'll get inspired to make your own version of some of the ones you'll see.

Until next time, Have a great day!
