Boxwood & Berries Projects



Boxwood & Berries is just around the corner....I can't believe it.
The heat wave has finally let up a little here and I pulled out all of my Fall and Halloween books and magazines. I even saw pumpkins in someone's yard last week.....good grief.
Now don't get me wrong....I love the Fall but I'm still holding on to summer with both hands.
I don't really know why....the yard is dry and ugly and my tan has faded.

But the thought of going back up to Wisconsin and seeing Jeanne again gives me butterflies. She is the most fantastic hostess and her shop is gorgeous. That's where I get all my fabrics and goodies.....woo hoo!!

If you don't know about Boxwood & Berries it's hosted by Jeanne at the Country Sampler in Spring Green Wisc. This is our 3rd year now....wow. I teach along with Barb & Alma from Blackbird Designs and Maggie Bonanomi.
(Maggie just had a new book come out called ~Comfort Zone~ and it is fantastic!!!!
I got a peek at the finished pieces that you will see in the book at Primitives of the Midwest in Lees Summit. It's a must-have!!)

Spring Green is a sweet little town with lots of shopping and restaurants.
And Jeanne plans everything....we start the day off with a great breakfast, work on projects until afternoon when we break for lunch at one of the quint little restaurants or we have it brought in so we can keep working, then we have a fun little snack and our day ends with a nice dinner.
Evenings are spent shopping, stitching, sewing and making new friends or catching up with old friends.

I love that everyone spends so much time together.....some great friendships have been made over the last few years.
And I love that we can break off and shop throughout the day. It's a nice break from the real world ; )

Jeanne has some wonderful surprises in store and everyone goes home with a wonderful tote full of goodies.

This year Boxwood & Berries will be in 2 sessions to accommodate the demand.
The first session is October 5th -8th and the second session is October 9th-12th.

There are still a few openings in each session.
If you are interested check out the website or give them a call for more information.

~Jingle All the Way~ Pinkeep Drum is one of my projects.
And it has a sweet little Heart Emery on the top.




This sweet little Emery can be made into a necklace with a bit of ribbon so you have your pins and needles close at hand when you're stitching.
Or with a little ribbon loop it can be made into a Pinkeep Ornament.


And this is another project for Boxwood & Berries.....~Emily Deerfield's Sewing Roll~
This is a brand new design and it's just so sweet.

If you can't make it to Boxwood & Berries this year but would still like to have the kits give the girls at Country Sampler a call or email them to get your name on the list.

Happy Stitching My Friends....
