Happy Fall!

Wow, it's already fall. Funny, it still feels like summer. Hopefully, cooler weather is right around the corner. I, for one, am totally ready for some cooler temperatures. Bring on winter! 

The start of a new season means it is time to start a new project (of course, any time is a good time to start a new project). Take a look at some new designs that will be coming into the shop very soon. Maybe your new project is on the way.

From The Drawn Thread
Four great new designs. I really like them all but my absolute favorite is the Bats in the Belfry. What a great idea, to have the bats flying out of the pumpkin head. Too cute!

Coming soon!

I hope everyone survived Hurricane Florence without any problems. I was very lucky. Lots of wind and rain but no trees down or power loss. My thoughts and prayers, however, are with those on the coast who have so much more to deal with. 

There are quite a few new designs on the way.....take a look!
