Happy New Year!

 Here is a picture of some of my favorite ladies wearing their "Sassy Little Aprons".  My daughter Hannah is missing but they do make a lovely group, don't they?  And proof that this Apron is flattering on everybody!  There is also a pattern for a matching children's apron.

 This is a wool project from Primitive Gatherings.  The kit with the pattern and wool is $80.00. 
 The pattern by itself is $12.00
 Mary King made this sample from Primitive Gatherings.  The pattern is $15.00 and the 
complete kit with the pattern is $100.00.
 This is a new pattern called "Dimensions" made with one of Moda's new fabric lines.  I backed it with silver dimpled Minkee.  This is the throw size.  The pattern includes crib, throw, twin, double and king size variations. 
 A very fun one to make! 
 Great if you are looking for a more masculine look.
 I made a new batch of "Raggedy Pants". 
 She is always a popular doll.  Her pattern is $9.00.
 Another sample from Mary King, "Geranium Baskets" from Primitive Gatherings.  
The complete kit is $42.50.
  Thanks, again, Mary!
 Here is a new line designed by Sandy Gervais for Moda.  There are some great companion patterns but I have not gotten any samples made up yet.  
Check Moda's website for inspiration!

 This pillow is called "Row of Rabbits" from Fay's Paints.  I figure since my daffodils are peeking up out of the dirt I should start getting ready for spring!
 This is a fun and easy tote to make.  Really suits novelty fabrics well.  I hope to make more of these for my girls' stockings next year.  Don't tell!  I think I will make the outside pocket deeper when I make more of these.  I would lose my keys/cell phone instantly if I put them in this pocket!  There are pockets inside as well that are deeper.
 And here is another fun spring idea-a table runner from Farmhouse Threads.  Cute!
I have a customer wanting to sell a Bernina 830.  3 years old, 9 1/2 hours of embroidery time and
 2 1/2 hours of sewing time.  Paid $10,600.00 asking $7,500.00.  For more info call 360-659-5954.

I am busy working on my quilt for the tri county quilt tour "Farm to Market".  I also have a fun fresh quilt at the machine quilters.  "Sunbeams" from "It's So Emma". I hope to put photos of it on the blog soon...and stitching up Crabapple Hill's panel...and "Among the Pines" embroidery is done, now it is time to piece the quilt...and design my Shop Hop Block for June 2015...and Bunny Hill's new Christmas line is on it's way. I hope I don't get bored!  Meanwhile, I am running away from home for a bit with my husband on a much needed get-a-way.  Yippee! 
 I think I will read a novel or two...
