(Updated Friday morning....)
Well...as I said in my rug watchers update...I'd do a happy dance when the border was done...and it got done at 1:15a this morning...so it's Happy Dance Friday!
However, unlike the groundhog, who predicted an early Spring this year.... this hooker is predicting 6 more weeks of hooking before this rug is finished!
Oh my gosh...Valentines Day is just around the corner! Girls, you've got one more weekend to send your husbands/boyfriends/etc. to the shop to pick out a special treat! (And don't forget, we have gift certificates too!)
We received two of our magazine's Spring issues yesterday in the mail...A Primitive Place and Mercantile Gatherings have now both arrived! Both are simply fantastic and filled with great primitive house tours, recipes, tutorials and articles!
(WOW girls, don't forget your discount!) If you need one or both held...better let me know!
Primitive Place Spring issue...$7.95 per copy
Mercantile Gatherings Spring issue...$8.50 per copy
We have a new counted cross stitch pattern in the shop this weekend...from Needlework Press...Maria Tilley, 1835. A reproduction of a beautiful old sampler...approx. size finished is anywhere from 14.6 x 19 using 40 ct. linen, to 21 x 27 using 28 count. Lots of great motifs throughout this sampler which could be used for a number of other projects as well. Pattern price is 21.95. (WOW discount applies!)
This morning, one more spring magazine issue was on our porch...the April Early American Life will be in this weekend at the shop as well! $4.95 per copy....
One more BIG stack of "garage sale priced" books will be coming in this weekend...about 90% of these don't even looked like they've been opened! If you've been looking for any of these titles..email me and I'll shoot you a price!
