Welcome to a new week! I feel like I've been sitting at this computer ALL DAY...placing orders, responding to emails, yada yada yada...not getting anything really done that I need to do up in my studio! Oh well...I never go to bed before midnight...so I guess there is still plenty of time left!
I've got some great new patterns coming in...this book should be here today!
New from Not Forgotten Farms..."American Folk"...10 great designs to hook, punch, stitch or applique...she is producing a limited number of these...if you think you are needing one...just let me know! $20 per book...(if you are a WOW member, you get a discount!)(As of Friday, these books are not here...yet! The first batch got shipped to the wrong zip code...so I'm hoping they are in tomorrows mail! I'll let you know if they show!)
And speaking of our "WOW" club...if you haven't seen the information on the club, it is in the posting right under this one...I've had a really great response to the club with lots of ladies joining in on the fun! If you'd like to be a part of the group...just email me!
Also coming in....
Wool Garden Crazy...great pattern...makes a very "do-able" wall hanging, pillow or framed piece that is 16" x 18". Pattern - $12.00 (WOW price $10.80) I will be kitting this also...as soon as I figure the price, I'll let you know!
Garden Sampler...this has great potential if you don't want to do a wallhanging! Wouldn't these be great on journal covers, or put 3 together for a garden runner? I can think of about a dozen more things! Again, a nice size that can be done quickly. A great beginner project...$8.00 for the pattern (WOW price $7.20)
A Humble Farm wall hanging...finished size is 24" x 24". When I first saw this I thought it would look great on some heavily dyed sandcastle...think I might have to try that and see what happens! With a couple of small changes, this would look great hooked! $8.00 for the pattern (WOW price...$7.20)
We've got a new magazine coming in soon! "A Primitive Place" Magazine will make its' debut in August...and it looks like it will be a wonderful addition to our primitive magazines that we sell now at the shop! It's a quarterly issue and the cost will be $8.95. If you'd like to be put on the list for one of the copies, just let me know. (We have ordered a limited number and I'm not quite sure how the reorders will work.)
(Friday) Got a couple of quickie updates to tell yall about...
Now, you know I LOVE American early antiques...especially pieces that were just used in everyday working life...and I LOVE firkins...so, this is one piece coming in this weekend that I LOVE LOVE LOVE! What a great "bottom of the stack" firkin! And it's blue on top of that! Now, I will say, the blue is not original to the piece (wish I could say that it was)...but if it was, the price would probably be three times as much...considering the size that this is...it's 16" or so across...a big ol' girl!
Price is $295.00. (SOLD) I'll keep it in the shop til my birthday (which is in about a month)...if it hasn't sold by then....then, Happy Birthday to me!!
Also coming in tomorrow...are these GREAT 2011 Engagement Calendars that Blackbird Designs has done...
I really wasn't planning on getting these in quite so early, but lots of places have been selling them now for a while and I'm afraid there is going to be "only so many"...so I got them in! And I NEED ONE!! Every page you turn has a full color photo of the most wonderful vintage, antique sewing things...these would make wonderful gifts to anyone who is a quilter, stitcher or antique lover....$23.00 each (WOW price $20.50).
And as a last note...I've been playing all week with this little guy....it's the treat the girls are getting for signing up for our WOW club!(And before someone emails me the obvious...yes, I just realized I forgot his eyes...ahhh!) Just a little more "tweeking" (or is that "tweeting") and he'll be done!
That's it for this week...we hope everyone has a wonderful holiday weekend!!
