Happy Thanksgiving to all! (Updated Tuesday evening...)

Is it just me, or did this whole year go by really fast?? In two days it will be Thanksgiving and I hope my turkey is ready to be cooked by then!

We had several fun things show up for the shop today....

Yall know we've been adding some great fabrics to the shop...about 100 or so bolts right now..just had these show up today..a couple from the Wiscasset line by Minnick & Simpson (now out of print), the dark brown paisley is from a new line "Wrapped in Paisley" by Kansas Trouble Quilters, and the little brown/red civil war print is from Charity Collections by Howard Marcus. Regular price on these are $9.00 per yard($9.50 for the brown paisley)... our price is $7.95 per yard and WOW girls get their discount!

Also FINALLY IN....the flax colored toweling with the red striping...16" wide. It's on a 15 yard bolt, so you can purchase whatever length you want...$5.50 per yard (WOW discount applies!) It is a great linen/flax color with nice primitive red (not bright) striping down both sides...here is a picture of one of the patterns we sell using it...

Just in time for Christmas...we found the most wonderful new line of candles...Scentsible Scents! Extremely strong fragranced and long burning....and the flavors we've tried so far are heavenly!! I wanted to get these in time for this weekend, so I didn't get quite as many flavors as I'd like...but we got some of the best ones!

(This is actually the photo provided by the company...so you can see what they look like..)

Two sizes...Medium Jar for $17.95 and 8 oz jar for $8.95...
Lemon Curd (shortbread cookie scent with a hint of lemon...so far, my favorite!)
Sugared Pumpkins
Southern Home
Orange Clove
Nutmeg & Cream
Apple Cellar
Stockings & Fir (really nice frazier fir christmas scent..not too heavy)

I also picked up melting tarts in...packed 4 to a package, these will sell for $4.95 per package...
Lemon Curd
Southern Home
Orange Clove
Sugared Pumpkins
Winter Wilderness (another great christmas scent)
Nutmeg & Cream

And, last but not least...Room Sprays...nice large bottle for $5.95...
Winter Wilderness (good to spray on your "not so live" tree)
Southern Home
Vintage Linens (great for your bedroom or bath!)

Next time you come in, tell us what you think about the new scents!!

Before I forget...the new Blackbird Designs book, "Garden Club" arrived today as well...really a beautifully laid out book with some really nice projects. After filling orders, I have two left. I'll try and post some of the pictures from the book tomorrow so yall can see what all is in there...$26.95 (WOW discount applies!)

Three new Christmas patterns are at the shop...pattern price on each is $6.95...

This first pattern makes a great table runner...or take the ornaments "apart" and put each one onto a black background for fun holiday pillows! I'll have a limited number of kits available this weekend...as soon as I get them together, I'll be able to figure the price...

Fun penny rug mat with some of the pennies being turned into ornaments. I'm not kitting this right off the bat..it's a really easy, scrappy project. But if you are needing any of the colors, I have them at the shop. I will have pieces of army blanket cut for this project...so if you need that, I'll have them as well!

Probably my favorite of the new patterns...gingerbread men and candy canes are always a good thing! I can kit this project if anyone wants to do it as a mat, but right now, I'm putting pillow kits together using the center gingerbread man design with the candy canes and holly leaves...my model is turning out really cute and it is going very fast! Perfect if you need some quick hand made gifts!
I'll also have some gingerman wool packs put together for the stuffed gingerbread man that is included in the pattern.

Time to go watch Dancing with the Stars!

Until later...


  1. Wow it all sounds so heavenly! I am definitely going to order something after the first of December, hope you have something left!

  2. I am new to your blog thru a blogger friend who has the privilege to visit your shop. I was coming over that way and saw that you are only open on the weekends. Maybe another time.
    Anyway I like what I see. I love the ornament table runner. I will be taking a look at your website later.
