Happy Monday to all!
We're starting off the week just great! A Primitive Place and A Simple Life Magazine both showed up today! I flipped through them real quick...Omg...can't wait to sit down and actually pour over all the great articles and pictures!
They will both be in the shop for this weekend! $9.95 each...(WOW price is $8.95)
If you need one shipped...just let me know!
Coming soon...Blackbird Design's new book..."For My Friend"!! Details coming as soon as I know more!
Just unloaded a box of new wools for the shop....this is what I call Wool Heaven!!
Some of these will get dyed...but some will just get washed and put out in all of their natural glory! More coming too!
The UPS man and our mail lady were both here at the same time today...delivering more goodies for the weekend!
Here is a new cross stitch pattern..."Mansion House at Fox Hollow". Done on 30ct linen...which we have lots of colors to choose from!
Also in that box was some more of the Cashel linen in "Flax"...28 count....beautiful color! Would look great for the Mansion House project!
We just received a note that the Spring issues of Mercantile Gatherings have been shipped...let me know if you need to be on the list for one! ($8.95 per issue...WOW price is $8.05)
