some new fabrics and new samples...

 I have been rearranging and added some new shelving.  Here are some photos of some of the fall fabrics

 This is a sample of a new Country Whims patterns, Baby Frosty.
The pattern is $5.00, 
the finished snowman in a vintage tart tin is $19.95.
 And here is a new Cottonwood Designs pattern, Frozen.
Both of these snowmen are about 6" tall.
 The pattern is $5.50.  The finished snowman is $12.95.
 This is a new Primitive Gatherings pattern, "Pumpkin Farm".  The pattern is $9.00.  The kit is $50.00 and the pattern is included.
 And here is a new pattern from Kathy Schmitz,  The BOO pattern is $12.00 and includes the gently hued design  printed on 100% cotton fabric-ready to embroider and sew!
"Primitive Country Wedding" pattern is $8.50 and includes 4 different patterns.  I have made 2.  The other one is at the end of this blog...somehow they are not in the correct order. 
 I hate technology!
 Another new pattern from Kathy Schmitz..."Fall Harvest".  Part of a 4 part series.  Busy working on the winter sample, too!  The patterns are $9.00 each.  The mini quilt in the center is done with paper piecing so you get perfect points!

 Here is another new pattern, "Scarecrow" from Cottonwood Creations.  He stands 5 1/2" tall and the pattern is $5.50.
The finished scarecrow is $12.95.
  Look pretty cute on the Pumpkin Farm Table mat, don't they?

 AND (drum roll, please...) here are the gorgeous new Nishikiito Embroidery Threads from Lecien in all their sparkling glory. 
 33 new beautiful metallics to stitch with.  They just arrived yesterday so I have not yet had the chance to play with them, but they are gorgeous!  The price is $3.25 per skein.
Crabapple Hill has some new designs  
that incorporate these lovely flosses.  I am sure more designers will soon be discovering them and using them, also.
 Here is my wayward sample from the
 "Primitive Country Wedding" pattern.
  Also great anniversary gifts!
Okay, that is all for tonight.  Next up...some of our button collection.  And maybe a few more fun samples...
