Thistle Down Moon

We have received Maggie B's latest book Thistle Down Moon
As usual it is filled with wonderful primitive projects.  
Book retails for $27.95

This is one of the many projects in the book. 
 I love old pincushions and have already started on this one. 
 So far it's easy to do.......the best kind! 
I could see several of these sitting in my studio. :)

Let us know if you would like a copy of this great book.

Happy Hooking!

Crisp Fall Morning

Good Morning everyone!
What a beautiful crisp morning it is.

I have another new wool appliqué pattern for you that is new to the shop.

"Best of Show" by Shawn Williams Threads That Bind

Mom is responsible for this one.  She decided to make it into a pillow.  I believe she stuffed it with a little of this and a little of that.  Leftover worms, stuffing, lint etc.

On the backside she decided to add a reverse appliqué pumpkin. 
 It gives you two choices to your pillow instead of one.

Mom did a great job of assembling the pillow.

The pattern retails for $12.00.

Happy Hooking!

Yes, Tuesday has come and gone.
I crawled into bed last night at 10 and realized I hadn't posted on the blog.  I am out of the routine.

I will take just a minute to recap the last few months.

  • BYOP  was a success we had beautiful weather and a great attendance.
  • New camera, new editing software...........don't know how to run either just yet.
  • 3 children in 3 different colleges
  • laptop and water bottle DO NOT laptop.
  • Youngest child is a senior in H.S. (lots of lasts this year)
  • Dyeing, dyeing and more dyeing  getting ready for Hook-Ins

Once I figure out how to get pictures from the BYOP out of my editing program I will get them posted so you can see.

We do have new items arriving at the shop.

Here is one of them:

This is 1 of 3 patterns by Threads That Bind.  We are working on the sample for #2 and the 3rd is not for sale yet.

"Prize Pick" is a 21x15 3/4 wool appliqué piece.  It's my favorite.
Pattern retails for $12.00

Fall is certainly in the air in Iowa.

Happy Hooking!

I'm back!


I have been absent and I am fully aware. 
 Even my husband has been needling me to post something. Which I don't really understand because he is right here experiencing all of the wonderful excitement with me.

I just want you to know that everything is O.K. and I will try and post on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Life is starting to get into a routine's not settling down that's for sure but I am slowly trying to find a "normal" routine.

Life has kept me busy and I had to make some priorities and blogging was put to the bottom of the list.
I will try and get everyone up to speed tomorrow.

PLEASE find Ewe and Eye on Facebook.  I can do quick posts there when I can't get to the laptop.

Till tomorrow.
