I just read my sister's blog (Prairie Star Quilts) and she said it was cold in Iowa! I will leave tomorrow for Dallas and then on to Des Moines on Monday! It is suppose to be about 100 here today and I am not sure how to pack! I think I will have to get out some warmer clothes to take with me! I'm not ready for the cold yet! Mom has her knee surgery on Wednesday and then on Saturday is my daughters baby shower. I will be there to help my mom out for a few weeks so I doubt if I will get much new started, I am not sure now if I can even get much done for the show. Oh well, first things first. I am thankful that I can at least take my pattern business with me and work from any where, and I am especially thankful that I can go and help my mom. God willing she will be able to carry on with her antiquing and running around with her friends without the pain!

Another new pattern! Once again this is a hanging. I have created a tube by folding the top over about two inches and filling it with bird gravel, crushed walnut shells or you could use cat litter! It is just enough to hold it to display on a cupboard door or to hang from a shelf, you could even put it on the back of a chair. If you would like you could skip weighting it and add ties and hang it from a tree branch wrapped in Christmas garland! All of my patterns can be found website

I will be leaving soon for Iowa for my mom's knee replacement! I will be away from home for a few weeks. I will be able to fill my orders just maybe not as quick.

Another new pattern! Wonderful little pin keeps ! The bottom round is weighted to sit on the arm of your favorite sewing chair! The cats tail is made to tie your embroidery scissors on and both the cat and the bird have a pocket, the cat has a heart pocket and the bird two wing pockets, to hold a package of needles or whatever! These are both quick and easy! I made one in an hour! I made mine out of wool, of course, but could be made from any fabric! You get both in one pattern. These should be available on my website at the end of this week!

I have a few new ideas for patterns so I thought with everything going on this fall that I had better take things as they come! This is to hang over your cupboard door or it could be made as a wall hanging! I love how it turned out. I just wish I was a better photographer! The black back ground (or main piece) is wool felt and the rest is wool. Wool is so hard for me to come by that I cherish every piece I find! If you get the wool felt wet and put it in the dryer it turns out nice, like a piece of a great old wool blanket!It will be on my website and ready to order when I get the photos back! I have several more ideas that I will be working on this week and then I really need to get busy on that show or I will never get anything done for that!

NOLAN DAVID - my new grand baby! He arrived August 31st at 9:00 a.m. He is beautiful! It was hard to leave him. I spent the week in Dallas and what a week it was! We have another one due November 29th! I should say we have two due November 29th! My daughter and my niece Erin are both due on the same day! This is a very busy year for us! I hope I can get back in the swing of things!
