sweet christmas

good morning! i’m sure some of you popped over on tuesday for a lucy update…mom switched her day off this week to thursday which throws my whole week off. therefore, when i got home tuesday, i realized that it was tuesday and i had not done a lucy update. so…i’ve decided to work extra hard on her over the holiday weekend and maybe have something to show you next tuesday.

Christmas fabric has started arriving…yes…i realize it hasn’t even been summer yet, but we must get started on those projects early.

sweet Christmas has arrived…(still waiting on the Snowman kits, but the yardage is super sweet and so cute…i’m already planning another pillow to coordinate with our Swell pillow…best keep an eye out)

sweet christmas —looks like i better snip those threads on the sleigh ride quilt—

i love how sweet Christmas coordinates with Swell Christmas and Good Tidings…a lovely retro look that we cannot get enough of…plus it has Sweet in the name….can’t go wrong. the collection is small with only 26 different skus…but the variety is wonderful! Snowman heads, spinning peppermints, poinsettias and poinsettias with a background stripe, a plaid/check print, stripes, candy canes, and a geometric print…lots to choose from…though i don’t think i could choose just one!

i do have some lovely color bundles that would look lovely mixed with Sweet Christmas.

we will be getting in the Snowman kits sometime in early june…i’ll keep you in the loop…we’ll also be offering a few hand-cut fat quarter bundles.

i’m planning on quilting up a quilt this morning then taking some pictures of the various Crochet and Embroidery books, Simplicity vintage notions, and Bee in My Bonnet pins and along with some Brazilian Embroidery, new English Paper Pieces shapes…hello 7 petal Chrysanthemum! and don’t forget Treehouse Textiles’ Dilly Bag is kitted and ready to rock along with a few other goodies and doing a little online work this afternoon…maybe after a quick trip over to Teal’s for a taco…we’ll see what happens…(the back has been acting up the last couple days so we’ll see how much i actually get done today after quilting up the quilt.)

happy stitching! i’ll hopefully be back tomorrow with an update on all the new yummies that are available online…
