Update on Fridays Sale

So just to tell everyone that the 20% off sale is in the shop in Maine only and not on Etsy.
If you would like I can take an order on Friday by the phone,(207-361-4860) hold your order, and when I get home at the end of the day I can email you an invoice from Paypal. I can mail orders out after email payments are received. So I would love to hear from you if I can help you out that way.
Have a good night

Happy Monday Morning




Hi everyone,
I just finished posting some of my Merry Christmas Kits on my Etsy shop. So check them out. I only made 20 of these. It was fun making them too, so maybe there will be more different ones coming in the future.
For Black Friday in the shop I am having 20% off everything in the shop only from 10:00 to 5:00.
I am also having a Holiday Open House in The shop on Dec, 3, 4 and 5th along with all of the other Village shops here. There will be refreshments, 2 free raffles, and a free chart with every purchase.
So start your Christmas shopping soon and dont forget to enjoy the moment.
I will post more for you this week.

New Primitive Kits Coming Soon


Hi everyone, I have been working on some kits for the shop and I figured I would make some available on Etsy too. These will be limited to 20. They should be ready by next week. Just in time for Black Friday shopping(maybe sooner ).

I had fun dyeing some green 32ct linen that I had. I used my morning left over coffee, and then later in the day I boiled some cranberry's and sprinkled away. So there are spots of pink on the linen.

Have a good night and more on Friday

My Long Legged New Friend & A Fun Workshop

Yesterday was a "Be Creative Day" for me. So I got out some wool that I have been using for other things in the shop and made a very long legged Holiday bird.


I enjoyed making him so much and I have more ideas for him that I decided to give a workshop for this long legged creature. So if you live close by and would like to just hang out one of these Saturdays soon, just give me a call for a date and time. (Still working on my calendar)

Oh I also want to share a photo of my helper today. We had our grandson last night and today. He had fun at the shop, playing and helping. He made sure that everyone that came in knew were the candy dish was.

Have a good night

"Sam The Snowman" will be arriving soon!!


Good Morning,

I have finished Mr Snowman. I gave him a name "Sam". He looks so happy with his friends. I have been working on another Funky Flower "Cassandra". I will post a picture of her on Monday.

And I am off to work on another design called ?. I really do not know yet. Maybe you can help me. I will post pictures of my progress and you can think about names.

(Hint) Its a winter scene with a sleigh and a horse, houses in the snow and of course a village with the ocean in the background. Wow that was a big hint! As I post peeks you think about it until I ask for suggestions and the winner will receive the chart free in the mail before it goes to market.

Have a good day

Free Cross Stitch Chart For The Holidays


Happy Sunday
I have a complimentary companion to the "Santa's Blessings" chart.
I used the same fabric, same floss, and same stitch count. This would make a nice pin keep or a nice scissor fob over (1). Even an ornament. So be creative and send me pictures of your finished stitching pieces I would love to see them.
have a good day
donna
Just click on the chart below and print from your computer.

I hope it comes out ok for you because I could not upload with Blogger as BITMAP only a JPEG.

New Wool Ornaments On Etsy and I Had 4 Very Nice Visitors


What a nice cold evening it is here. I have added some wool ornaments that I made today to my Etsy shop for your Holiday shopping. And just a note that for every order on Etsy between now and Christmas I will send you a free cross stitch chart.(Sorry you can't pick, it has to be a surprise)



It was a nice surprise today to have 4 ladies from Albany NY come in to visit. They were a lot of fun and all were very photo friendly. Here is one of the pictures that was taken. Hope they come back again. Maybe we can have stitching night together. (HA HA) To far. Well I can only hope for a fun bunch like them to stitch with.

I have also added some shop updates. Click on the link above "Shop Updates"
Have a good night

A little angel




Good morning. I am posting a picture of a little angel I made the other day. I have so many corks that I received from an old friend that I have to do something productive with them. So I made some reindeer ornaments and now I am making scissor fobs with funky wool flowers on them and on to my angel ornaments for the Holidays. So here is a picture of one. I used shrinky dink and a crystal to hang. Have a happy creative day
