It's almost time for spooks, and buying some candy in the "fun size"--which means fun for me to eat! But seriously, it's now time to buy the candy to hand out, not eat!
To go along with that candy, here are a couple of Halloween machine embroidery designs that we have ordered and will have soon. These are from Claudia's Creations, and they had 2 samples made of the same quilted wall hanging, to show the different appearance when done on black vs. white background. Either looks great!
They also have this very pretty smaller design, if you want something that is not so "Halloweenie"--
I'm picturing this done in less purple and more autumn colors.
A new Christmas tablerunner design is coming our way, with options for separating the elements to make towels, aprons, napkins, etc. I consider
Now, switching gears back to a new tablerunner pattern for all those stripes and border prints!
This is Mitered Magic from The Designer's Workshop.
Unless you have been living under a rock, or are reading this because it just makes such fabulous reading, you probably have heard of Tula Pink. Her colors and designs have gained quite a following, and now she is beginning her signature line of notions.
This looks like they are fighting over those beautiful scissors!
She also has a seam ripper and a little snips scissors, all done in that iridescent metal. She told us she has more notions in the development stages. We have ordered these for the store, and can't wait to see them arrive!
Something else that we have been wanting to bring into the store for quite awhile are the Rennaisance ribbons. So we finally placed an order for an assortment, and we will be showing you some fun ways to use them in your projects. These are gorgeous top-quality designer ribbons.
We visited awhile with Sue Daley, and in my last posting, I mentioned her designs. What I didn't include there was this picture--
It shows some quilt and block designs, all using English Paper Piecing. We have these instructions and the paper packs for these now, so I hope to see some fun stitching soon! If you are interested in learning more about this technique, Sue has some great instructional videos on YouTube.
