I'm trying to do better this week by starting my update a little earlier! I hope everyone had a relaxing weekend....here in the NC, the temperature tomorrow is suppose to be 101 with a humidity index of about a million! UGH! There are things I need to do outside...ok, well....forget that! Then there is a bunch of wool dying I need to do...hmmm...maybe if I get an early start in the morning! I can't seem to get motivated up in my studio because it is SUCH A MESS!! I truly believe I was ADD as a child and it has just carried into my adult life! (Though when I was in grade school...my teachers just told my mother I was "Social"!!)
Anywhooo.....on with the update....
We found an incredible deal on some great primitive painted frames...there are two sizes...5 x 7 and 8 x 10...and there are two colors...mustard over black or red over black. They are fantastic for cross-stitch, embroidery, or punchneedle projects...and they are CHEAP! The 5 x 7's are $3.95 each and the 8 x 10's are $5.95 each!! All the frames comes with glass as well....(that red on the frame is more "barn" red than "cherry"...guess I need to dink a little more with those camera settings!)
We're bringing in lots of fall/halloween punchneedle patternn this coming weekend...plus a new pattern pattern by Country Stitches..."Berries and Blooms"...a wonderful little pattern with 4 sewing projects...$13.95 (WOW price $12.50)
The linen that was used in this project is 40ct. overdyed called "Days Gone By". Regular retail on this linen is $11.50 per 1/8 yard piece (approx. 9" x 27"). Our price will be $10.00 per fat 1/8th size (WOW member price $9.00).
And when we were in PA. last month, we found a fabulous source for vintage ribbon ...and it all arrived today! We thought we'd try a few colors to start with, so we picked "Fresh Eggs", "Slate", "Moss", "Figgy Pudding", "Twig", "Pumpkin", and "Blush". These will be wonderful additions to your vintage pincushions, pillows, etc. as trim and edgings...each package is 5 yards for $3.50 (WOW price $3.00 each)
We have some great new primitive cards in the shop...all blank...so you can write in your own special message...or frame them!! $1.95 each
**A NOTE ABOUT JUDY CONDON'S BOOKS...
We have a few customers that are needing some of the back issues of Judy Condon's books...
We have extra copies of her last book, "Spirit of Country" coming back in for those of you who would like to get one.
However....the book that was primarily on gardens..."Simply Country Gardens"...is no longer available for shops to purchase. That book is almost sold out and if you are wanting one, you'll need to purchase it directly from Judy before she runs out.
Finally...."Midnight Run" punchneedle patterns will be ready for this weekend....and we also received the Sampler Threads floss used for the background! So for you girls patiently waiting for that pattern...it will be in the shop on Saturday!!
Also...don't forget there are 20 fall/halloween and Christmas punchneedle patterns coming in as well! Early birds will get the best selection!!
Weather this weekend in Raleigh...mid to upper 80's both days....can you believe it!!! It's not going to last....but I'll gladly take it for as long as it wants to stick around!
Have a great weekend and come see us if you get the chance!!
