happy 2020~

good morning!

mom and i would like to wish you a merry christmas, a happy new year, and a 2020 filled with stitching, laughter, friendship, pretty fabric, conversation, and at least one finished project.

we have big plans for 2020…lots of quilt shows, a couple shop hops, lots of new fabrics and bundles and precuts, a list of great new projects we want to get started on…spring (new year’s) cleaning, rearranging, adding in some Yarn, and lots of other great new things!

after a year full of ups and downs…

Kandii passed away in May…Milissa and Nick (my cousin) married just a couple weeks before Braxton arrived in June…Mom and Dad were in a fender bender in Yellowstone which resulted in Mom and I taking a trip out in July to pick up the car…Gabby picked Mom in August

Dad getting back to work after the accident and getting back in the swing of things.

Kittens coming and going…

Max and Brutus getting sick right at the end of the year…with Max having to hit up the vet yesterday…THANK GOD we started 2020 with a win…just old dog stuff which can be taken care of with a little Prednisone. He is on the mend. Brutus doesn’t let much faze him…he was back at it within a couple days.

Then Mel and Ty had a gas leak on New Year’s Eve Eve so they spent the night.

New Year’s Eve was spent at home…watching Netflix…excited for a new year to start.

our Inventory Reduction sale runs through midnight tonight…so if there is anything you’d like…be sure to pop over to the website and check it out.

sale includes brand new yarn, brand new fabric, books, yardage, precuts, notions, thread, and kits. there are some exclusions…

happy 2020!

memoirs

good evening! the day is winding down around here…just doing a tad bit of tidying and tying up a few of our newest Low Volume Christmas bundles (you can grab one of them here) they have been very popular it is hard to keep them in stock.

our memoirs order has arrived along with precuts and has taken up residence beside our silver tree and the Urban Farmhouse collection.

Memoirs is classic, wintery. Deep gold nearly brown, patina, indigo, rust, porcelain, and silvery grey remind me of Grandma. The cozy tones of her old davenport, her tasseled pillows, worn draperies, and knickknacks.

memoirs

we have yardage and precuts available and a project percolating…check out the selection here.

New projects will start making their appearance quickly after Christmas…right now we are finishing up our (mostly) Homemade Christmas gifts…which is what i will be doing tomorrow…ALL. DAY. LONG. –since i haven’t started a single gift yet.

anyways…i’d best be off…dinner with Monica tonight…we are thinking burgers…

happy stitching!

simply vintage and a low volume christmas

good morning! hopefully you are getting all geared up for thanksgiving! we’ve been working on a few things around here along with some shopping. we’ve decided all homemade gifts this year, so that has been fun and i can be pretty crafty if i wanna be.

***

we’ve been loving this retro christmas vibes we get from mixing Sweet Christmas and Merry Merry Snow Days with the remnants of Swell Christmas and Good Tidings. Lots of sweet little prints. i’ve taken all my favorite low volume prints from the 4 collections and added in the house print from French General’s Petite Maisons de Noel. The culmination of the 18 different prints is practically magical. pretty whites, beiges, creams, greiges mix with any decor whether it is classic reds and greens or a more pastel, cottage style christmas. pair this bundle with your favorite collection or add to your christmas collection for a future project.
