What's up at the shop!

Wow, it's the end of the week already. Hope everyone has some wonderful weekend plans. The weather here is going to be a bit cooler (80's) so hopefully I will get to enjoy some outdoor time (preferably something fun...not yard work).

Let me tell you what is going on at the shop. So much is here and even more is coming!!!

2011 Loose Feathers Club:
Part one of the three part sampler has arrived and features a summer bird sitting among the strawberries. Some of the alphabet is also included.The remaining letters will be coming in the next two parts (available in Sept. and Nov.). The two bonus graphs are a partridge sewing box and woodland berries. It looks like it will be a really beautiful sampler when all the parts are together. I can't wait!

Part 1 of the Loose Feathers Club
Two bonus patterns included with part 1

The "Mystery" has been solved! Part 3 of the Mystery Sampler (Birds of a feather) is now available and what a gorgeous sampler it is!

New from Glendon Place:
4 Halloween patterns have just been released and they are simply wicked!
Come Sit a Spell
Witch Parking Only

Halloween Luck

I just love the "Witch Parking Only" although "Come Sit a Spell" looks more like me.  

New from Rosewood Manor: Christmas Blues
This booklet contains over 30 Christmas ornaments in various sizes and stitched in shades of blue.

Coming Soon from Little House Needleworks:
Little House Needleworks is releasing a set of patterns called "1785 Samplings".These designs were inspired from a sampler dated 1785 by Lear Wilson. The set will include 3 different designs (pictured below).
