Happy Halloween!

Halloween is this Wednesday and that means October is almost over.  Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner. Wow, seems like just yesterday it was summer time. Oh well, time just keeps flying by. 

I hope everyone had a nice weekend. I want to apologize again for having to cancel the estate sale this past Friday but the weather was just awful. We were able to have it on Saturday and sold much of what we had. Thank you to those who were able to come and support this sale. 

Here are some new designs heading this way....take a look!

From Plum Street Samplers
A great new collection of designs from Paulette. My most favorite is Gobble Gob. How cute are those turkeys? Also, Scary Two was previously released as a chart with thread. Now, it has been re-released but as a chart only.
