I can finally go to bed! (UPDATED SATURDAY NIGHT 1/21)

Saturday night...when we got home from the shop this evening...Judy Condon's new book was on the porch! Yea! It's going with us to the shop tomorrow...


When I got up this morning, I swore I wasn't going to bed until my rug was finished (well, at least the hooking part of it)! It's now a little after midnight and I'm heading off to bed! Ta da!! Now onto the binding!


Can't believe it's already Thursday...where did this week go?? I'll be updating the blog several times today and tomorrow with new info and stuff that's arriving!

We got in the February Word Play pattern from Country Stitches....

Pattern price is $7.95 (WOW price $7.15) We also still have in stock the 35 ct. Abecedarian linen that was used on the originals...

I checked with Primitive Quilts and Magazines yesterday...shop copies are shipping next week...so lets cross our fingers for next weekend! Great projects in the magazine (I got a sneak peak copy in the mail already!) Here are pictures of two projects that I'll be kitting up...

This is Maggie Bonanomi's project...naturally when I saw that background wool, and knowing that I have that, well...we've got to put this kit together! (Overall size is 12" x 14 1/2")

And this is Jan Goos's project...love this! Wouldn't this make a great bolster pillow! If you've seen the "Settler's Pride" blocks in the shop...well that is the color palette I'll use for this kit! (Project size is 15" x 30")

I'll figure the price on the kits here soon...but if you know you want to be on the list for either of them..email me!

We've got the model being made of the quilt on the front cover...cute small wallhanging size...it's the project offered by Cheri Payne Kits will also be available for this!

FYI...the Primitive Place magazine will be shipping the first of February! The list is going for the gals that want it...don't miss out! $8.95 per issue...

This is the book several of us have been waiting for! Remember the 4th of July parade rug that was shown on the front cover of Judy Condon's "Spirit of Country" book...that pattern will be in this book! I know I want to do this rug for sure...I'm thinking about forming a rug group to meet once a month..wanna join??
Here's a picture of that parade rug...

The newest Judy Condon book has now shipped! It might get here by Sunday...

  1. Gosh, that is just gorgeous! Very beautiful.

  2. Congrats! It looks beautiful!

  3. Lisa congratulations. I know you are happy. How will you display your new finish?

  4. Lisa, your project is simply beautiful. Great job. I want to make the parade - so I want the book to have that pattern. I still do not know how to do that rug hooking stuff - but I want to make that so sign me up to join that rug hooking group. Where are you gonna hook? Not sure I can make it to your house but I do want to hook. :)
