Days Gone By.............

We just received these wonderful cards in yesterday. They are blank 5 x 7 note cards with simple yet wonderful primitive pictures. On the back of each card has a simple saying to match the picture. These are just a small sampling of what we received. Many of us are sending emails but how special to receive a hand written note on a wonderful card!! These retail for $1.95 ea.

Humble, yet pleasing

Let It Snow.......................ugh!!

Here is "Let It Snow" We took this pattern of Maggie's and made a pillow out of it. There is actually 2 designs and Mom put them on 1 pillow. When you get tired of one side you can turn your pillow over and have something else. To finish it off Mom is going to sew pom-poms around the pillow. Clever idea.............. I know we all hate to think of snow already but for those of you that do projects ahead of each season..................this is for you!! Pattern retails for $9.00

Have You Any Wool..................WE DO!!!

Baa Baa Black Sheep Have Ye Any Wool?......Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full. Bolts of wool at the shop with more on the way.

1. Gray Houndstooth

2. Off white Glen Plaid

3. Black plaid...........perfect for crows or dark background.

4. Bright Multi Stripe...........cut it either way for some fun adventures

5. Multi Plaid (contains orange, gold, turquoise, brown and rust) get the idea. They always say start with a good plaid! This one is it!!

6.Brown Plaid (camel, brown, gold and orange) This would make a great light back ground

7. Light Brown Heather This wool has a great feel to it. Use as is or over-dye!

8. Brown Plaid (brown, gold and green) Perfect for a Fall rug

Christmas is just around the corner!!

The latest book by Judy Condon. Simple Greens-Simply Country is all about decorating for the Christmas Season. The book retails for $24.95 and is filled with LOTS of primtive seasonal decorating!!

"Yuletide" by Brenda Gervais. 3 projects in 1 pattern. On the left hand side is a cross stitched book binding. Mom did this one. I believe that she used an old army blanket when attaching the cross stitch. The pattern also contains directions for a 9 x 29 wool penny rug and a 31/2 x 7 punch needle St. Nick. The pattern retails for $18.00. Good bang for your buck. Think Christmas gifts!! :)

Where or where did Fall go?

Wow! Where did Fall go? I think we went straight into winter! As I am writing this I am wearing a turtle neck and a heavy wool sweater. I am headed out to watch a Cross Country meet. I think the kids are going to BLOW across the finish line. I certainly hope that the wind is at their backs. Don't know about you but I am hoping for an Indian Summer?

Here is a chair pad that Mom just finished. It doesn't really have a name............just Crow w/ Pumpkin. The pattern retails for $22.00.
