We will have new patterns at the show in Dallas!

Visit our website for the details on my new patterns, or come and see them in person at our next show - in Dallas, TX!

This is a picture of our booth in Dallas last year.  I'm beginning to wonder where in the heck we are going to put all of our new stuff!

I have three new patterns - all small, wall-hanging size.  The first one is called So Many Nines, So Little Time.  Nine patch blocks keep showing up in my quilt designs - they are just fun to make!

The next little quilt is called Friendly Stars - love this background fabric! This is the first time that I've published a pattern with wool applique. I made up some little wool kits too - fun!

The third newbie is called Falling Stars.  I actually made one of these a year or two ago, but I wasn't happy with my quilting, so I didn't ever publish it.  I found a new source for wool (Tracy Trevethan Designs) and love her orange pieces, so I decided to make it again and leave the quilting to the professionals (Kym Ward from Reds Threads)!  All three new patterns are available on my website - 

As for all of the other new "stuff" that I mentioned - we have the Valdani pearl cotton (size 12) that coordinates with these 2 new wool designs. They are so pretty - just like candy, only without the calories!  And while I was at it, I decided to keep some of my favorite things in stock, so I bought some Aurifil thread (packaged in a cute little ruler box!), and Clover binding clips.  Oh...and I discovered some needles for wool applique that I just love - they are made by Bohin and are my new favorite! All of these will be for sale at shows - they aren't currently on my website, because I have a limited number of spaces, and I just can't put everything on there.  If you see anything in this post that you would like, just e-mail me.

We also have many new shapes and sizes of ruler boxes.  This one is awesome - it will hold  your whole project; blocks, pattern, pearl cotton, scissors, needles - and about anything else you might need!  It's about
10" x 12".  These are only going to be available at shows for now because shipping costs on this are almost as much as the box!

And of course, we will have lots of new jewelry.  I spent several days making bling - tons of little bead sets and charms - lots of flags, bees, hearts - just something for everyone!

We have so many other new items that I want to share, but this post is getting too long, so you will just have to come to a show and see for yourself!  Here is the info for the show in Dallas:
