Okay...so it has been awhile. Life has gotten in the way. I am sure you know the feeling. Just going to share with you a few things.........
Texas celebrated her independence day again and I am so thankful for all those brave men and women and the sacrifices they made so that I can live in this great state!
http://www.juliasneedledesigns.com has a cute freebie up today.
agelessembroidery.com has another beautiful font going and some super dollar deals. These designs are absolutely gorgeous and stitch out so well.
The embroidery 101 classes went so well that i am doing Applique 101 this Thursday at SewWhat! in Palestine. Finished making the samples for the quilt-as-you-go baby bib class for April. They are really cute and FAST!. Still working on fun projects for the Spring Fling trunk show for May 1st. My sewing room is a disaster zone with projects piled 3 and 4 deep. Just not enough time to sew! Covered notebooks, fabulous feet, and lots of classes on the calendar. My new best friends are Fricion markers and chrome needles.
We have been lucky to escape most of the ice and snow so far, but we got a taste Sunday and Monday. So much for the peach crop this year. Most of the peach trees around here were in full bloom, as well as all the pear and plum trees. The white blooms on 84 towrad palestine were just breathtakingly beautiful this past week.
On a fun note...I am publishimg my second pattern! It is an arduous and expensive task, and I can hardly wait until the copyright part is done and I can share more with you! Stay tuned...
Several of us went to an AnitaGoodesign 10th anniversary event in Tyler a couple of weeks ago and had such a fun outing. You should see the feather blocks Tillie is doing! i have stitched out two of the frames I bought...WOW...they are gorgeous! These are not quick projects, by any means and they do take up some thread and time, but the detail is what makes them so unique and their instructions are really well done. I enjoyed seeing all the samples, meeting new people that love stitching, and hanging with my besties. Going on a shop hop 2 day bus thingy the end of April, so saving my pennies! Yeah right! lol I just got on www.secretsof.com and bought more designs yesterday. Thank goodness they were only $1, I love when they do this. It gives me a chance to try some new vendors and see their work for $1 instead of paying full price. This is how I found graceful embroidery, louisa meyer originals, my fair lady and lots of others. Check it out.
Enough for today! Going to brave the grocery store. So many great recipes posted on fb that I want to try. The 7up Biscuits were a big hit as well as the Jalapeno Chicken and Rice and the crockpot porkchops.
Be safe, be warm, and have happy, happy stitches til I post again! s
