To Market.... To Market.....

I am in the MAD RUSH to get myself off to market Quilt Market in Houston on Thursday.  Anyone who knows me knows that pushing it until the last minute is just the way I roll.  I picked up the last of my new quilts from the Chelsea today and as usual she worked her magic, making my applique look great!  Here is  a sneak peak at the quilt, In My Pretty Garden.

So, today I have sewn the binding on two quilts, my cute Sis Holly is finishing the binding on a 3rd and now to work finishing my latest pin cushion, A Slice of Style.  My mom is busy this very minute sewing the pin cushion kits for sample spree, and I am sure that my fabulous Bro-in-law, Clark, will be happy to be done with me for a while too. He does the typesetting of my books and the design of all my pattern covers and let's just say that waiting until the last minute is NOT the way he rolls.  He's the best though and always comes through. Don't know what I would do without my family, I certainly would not be ready for market, that's for sure!

New Cross-stitch and punch needle kits are now ready to ship and this month I have designed an Autumn collection including November Expressions (379), Autumn Rick Rack Row (584), Falling for You (960) and November Blocks (PK23).

I am also including two new Christmas designs, Christmas Rick Rack Row (585) and Due to the popularity of the Good Witch or Bad Witch Side-By-Side pillow kit I am releasing another set titled Naughty or Nice (311)

The Rick Rack Row kits are a new style in my cross-stitch lineup.  Each kit contains pre-sewn pillow sham made of beautiful fabrics and jumbo rick rack trim.  Also included are DMC floss, tapestry needle and pattern of seasonal motifs and rick rack stitches.

I am now busy getting ready for Quilt market at the end of this month as well as my next cross-stitch release. Here is a preview of my new quilt pattern Fuzzy Caterpillar and there will be more designs as market approaches. 

Happy Stitching Everyone!
