I'm back....

Time flies when you're having fun.

I have so much to share with you, here we go...

Let's start with my Girl's Club at Country Sampler
The first edition for 2017 is being boxed up as we speak.
Here's a little sneak peek
~Peacock Peacock Needle Keep~

I've been doing this Club for gosh, so many years I don't even want to count them.
This is how it works. Sign up with Country Sampler in Spring Green, Wisc.
You can find their contact info here
I design 4 exclusive kits a year. This year you will receive them in February, May, August and November.
The Kit includes a complete pattern with color photo, graph and finishing instructions, linen, hand dyed threads and any fabrics, velvets, wools or ribbons to finish each project.
My goal this year is to include a different textile or accessory for each design.
This month I used hand dyed velvet from Blackberry Primitives and a gorgeous pale pink ribbon.
What am I going to use for May's design??
Well....
ya gotta stick around and find out.
I've had so much fun with this Club. And the good news for you is, the Club is open to new participants. We've done away with the waiting list and are making room for all that want to join.
So, come and join the fun.

Well everybody...I planned to get this updated earlier but my day kinda fell apart.

So, here we go....
I have a lot of ground to cover. But first, I want to start this out by saying THANK YOU to everybody that has supported me over the years.  I appreciate your kindness and friendship more than you will ever know. Some of you I've known from the very start of this journey and others I've just met. I love hearing from you, meeting you at retreats and seeing your finished pieces.  You inspire me.

And I'd be lying if I said this journey has been a smooth one.  We've had some growing pains and bumps along the way.  It's not always pretty here on the homestead. If you don't know it's just me and my Mom that run this funny farm.  She's the cruise director of pattern making and shipping and I design. There are days she wants to kill me and days I want to choke her.  But we're a team and I couldn't do it without her.

And The Studio.....wow what a ride that has been.  It's just now starting to take shape and I do love being there.  Still lots of bugs to work out but it's a great space.  I have to be honest and say that I knew it was going to be rough getting it going but I didn't anticipate how rough it would really be.  It's knocked me down and made me cry but I've stuck it out.  
I've had lots of requests to have some classes and I do intend to offer them.  And maybe even have some friends come in and teach as well.  
 Now....on to some fun stuff...
