January 2012 Sneak Peek

I don't even know where to begin...  These last few weeks have been an absolute whirlwind.  My brother Jason spent Christmas with Aimee, mom and I and despite all the chaos of rearranging the basement and preparing for 2012, it was wonderful to spend time with him... or should I say it was wonderful to have a handyman here for ten days...
We had our first Facebook giveaway- which was a lot of fun!  Congratulations to Barbara Qureshi who won our new hand dyed fiber pack, 'Waves of Grain' (pictured below), which will be available in January.  A new fiber pack will be available each month, and consist of an exclusive Silken Pearl colorway, 1/4" velvet and 4mm 100% silk ribbon and other yummy embellishing fibers.  A monthly auto-ship option will be available as well. 

Waves of Grain
We will be adding a new, fun, sparkly thread, called 'Dazzle', which is available in 6 colors.  It adds just a little shimmer or 'bling' to embellishing stitches, which I love.

Dazzle- Avocado
 We have added a great line of prints and solids from a trendy new company in New York called Dear Stella.

Two, new Valdani packs of three.

 And somewhere in between the holidays and chaos mom was able to make a new project which will be available as a kit- The Swag Bag...

I wish everyone a wonderful and safe New Year!  Stay tuned for new products, projects and giveaways coming in 2012.

Farewell to BOM 2011

Today Mary packaged the last of the 2011 BOM.  What a sigh of relief... well, for about 2 weeks.

Packaged and hauled up to the kitchen

Then through the garage to Cathy's car

Then off to USPS!

What a load!  I hope all the 2011 BOM participants enjoy their final package!
Time to focus on January 2012!

Crazy for Wire Trees

We have been so busy this past week moving things from one side of the basement to the other trying to squeeze out just a little more space.  I am absolutely exhausted!  We might be halfway there, but it's hard to envision since everything is everywhere.
We love these wire trees; adorned with Holiday Birds, (kit and tree available at so much so, that Cathy came up with an adorable new project- a Flurry Tree Skirt! 

This new kit is available for a limited time.  Wire trees, Holiday Bird kits and Flurry Tree Skirt kits can be purchased at

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

New, African Fabrics

While mom and I were at market in Houston, we spotted these unique African Fabrics.  They are a hand-stamped, indigo dyed light cotton fabric.  The thing I love most about these fabrics are the little imperfections in some parts of the design; this tells you they are truly a handmade product.

Fat Quarter Pack Available
These fabrics are an absolute steal priced at only $7.50 a yard!  
Fabrics are available at
