SPRING has arrived........

Recently I posted that spring was coming soon!  The newest pillowcase pattern, SPRING, is now ready for you to see.  I will be meeting with my printer guy the first of next week to have them printed.  Chelsie has worked her magic again!  I hope you love the cover as much as I do.


Winter, PPL084, $10.00  was the first in a series of seasonal pillowcase pattern.  Watch for Summer and Fall later this year.

Gift of Giving

I don't think there is anything more special than to receive a gift from a friend that was hand stitched.  There's just something warm and cozy receiving something handmade.  Lu Ann Leonard  made a special gift for her friends 60th birthday and wrapped it up in a very special package.  She sent me these pictures so I put them in a collage so you could see them also.

The table topper Lu Ann made was from my Summer Susans pattern.  I love the way she presented her gift wrapped in sunflowers.  Great job Lu Ann..........and a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY to your friend.

Shotgun Wedding

I've made this comment before, but it's worth repeating I think.  As a designer one of the greatest pleasures we get is seeing a quilt that someone has made from one of our patterns.  SHOTGUN WEDDING was designed a year or two ago.  It's got a funny story about my mom and a male cousin dressing up as a bride and mom was the groom and my cousin was the bride.  It was a mock wedding which included a shotgun, for my aunt and uncle's 50th wedding anniversary.

Lara Buccella  made a shotgun wedding for her Aunt and Uncle that live in Tennessee.  I just know they love what she made.  Thank you so much Lara for sharing your wonderful quilt with all of us. You did a great job.

THINK SPRING..............

It seems that we are skipping winter this year in the state of Florida.  It's supposed to be in the 80's this entire week......did someone forget to tell Florida it is WINTER?  Mother nature will do her thing, of course, and I for one don't want to make her upset, so I'll just tell you about something exciting coming your way!

I received a picture this week of the cover of the SPRING issue of the PRIMITIVE QUILTS AND PROJECTS magazine.  It will be coming your way very soon.....just thought you'd like a sneak peek!
If you don't subscribe to the magazine......jump on over to their website and start your subscription today.

They also sent me a copy of the picture of the project I'll have in the spring issue.  It's called "Wedding Day"
and I'm so excited for you to see it.  If you know anyone getting married in 2013 here's your chance to make 
something for their special day.
