Come sit and chat with me....and a give-away!

I wanted to change one of my charts and add a cute design to it.
It was my "I'll put the kettle on". It made a cute little cushion and I even give a tea pot charm with each chart. Well I wanted to add these two sitting ladies.....sipping tea.....
I still need to stitch it, probably red on cream linen but would look great in any color.
There is way to much to do around here. I stitched 5 mottoes for customers in the last two weeks and hardly had a chance to get back to patterns until this morning. Three hours later and the pattern was done. On 14 ct it is 9x9". On 16 ct it is 8x8" and 18 ct it is 7x7". Cute size to frame or make into a cushion or even on a cover for a little project bag. I haven't decided  yet.
The chart will be available tomorrow in my ebay store. Includes a tea pot charm. $8 plus postage. Includes one charm.

Lets give a couple charts away! Come join me on my birthday, August 14th and we will have a party, sit and chat a while and give a couple charts away!!

Good luck.....thanks for stopping by.

Hand dyed linen sale, free floss and free linen!

I finally got more linen dyed last week and have listed it in my ebay store. These are one yard pieces, 36" x 60" for $44. I include a free 20 yard skein of floss with each ebay order. If you order direct I will send 3 skeins of floss, you choice of colors.
ebay store:

Shall we have a super sale? Sure!! Buy 5 yards and get one free yard plus 15 skeins (300 yards!) of floss!

Colors are slightly mottled, nothing real drastic. Classy linen colors, the same as I use on all my samplers. Cream, Light parchment, Light tan, Medium Parchment, Golden Parchment, Pale sky blue, Slate blue and Rose blush. It's always hard to get a great photo with this camera...colors are prettier than what is showing on my monitor.

I can fold and mail in a padded envelope or a priority mail box to prevent wrinkles. Edges are finished for you and linen is ironed.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hand dyed linen winner today!

I am pleased to announce today's fabric winners. I wanted to add more pictures of the new fabric colors I have added. These cloudy days don't lend themselves to taking photographs. I will try to take more photos this afternoon if it clears up. I have several more colors in linen, Light Caramel, medium Caramel and Slate Blue. Add that to Champagne, Light and medium Parchment, sage and summer yellow. Some have more mottling than others. I don't do drastic color splotches folks....I like the subtle look of classy fabrics.
If you like Aida I have several colors. I also have some beautiful 18ct fiddler's cloth....a rustic aida. I really like the color variations in it.

The first winner is Kimberly Goins. She said she wanted Aida so I will send her two smaller  pieces. The linen is 1/2 yard and one piece goes to Tricia.
Please email me, and give me your address.

I will start the linen sale later today or tomorrow, here and in my ebay store so stay tuned.
Congratulations to the winners today!

Happy 4th of July! Give-away winner today!

Happy 4th of July!! A day to celebrate a great country and all the people who have fought for it. The world may have a lot of troubles and we have our fair share.....but I still believe America is a great country.....and will rise above all of this.

The pictures are two of my favorite mottoes. My pattern of God Bless America (and He truly did and we better not forget that) and a copy of an antique motto in my collection, Let us have peace.

I hope all of you are celebrating today with family and loved ones. Some will be remembering loved ones lost while fighting for this great country. Freedom is not free and many have paid the price for it.

Here is a picture of today's gift, a patriotic trim bag of goodies!

I am pleased to announce the winner  today.
Cheryl Rodruquez! And lets give a couple smaller grab bags away!
Pam Koontz and Jackie Podboy. Please email me,, and give me your address.
Congratulations winners!
Be sure you have signed up for all of the Christmas in July give-aways.
Have a wonderful day!
