hello september

summer seems to have come to a close. the crisp autumn winds have started pushing out the sunny summer heat and the leaves have started to show their color. we’ve been cozy-ing up the shoppe as well–we’ve fluffed it up with some autumn pastels. pale pumpkins, pale colors, and some pastel fabrics.

Finnegan has arrived…yummy precuts and yardage.

i am in love with this newest project mom whipped up…inspired by the feel of a long past primitives shop…this project is cozy, classic, and a perfect addition to any autumn home. featuring a mixture of Shelbyville and Diamond Textiles, this project has all the autumn feels! Backroads measures approximately 48 x 60 inches and is perfect with cream linens and antique crocheted shams and a platter of fabric pumpkins. we have kits available here.

lastly…i’m feeling the cheery, 30’s repo love…(even though i relish the idea of cozy sweaters, farmer’s market chili-i spent all day sunday simmering a stock pot of it-, and crackling leaves)…i couldn’t resist pulling some of my favorite 30’s and whipping up one of these blocks. Missouri Daisy block measures 10 inches and the paper pack includes 4 acrylics and papers for 12 blocks…we have it available here.

we’ll be in Madison starting Wednesday (for set up) thru Saturday…so Monica will be in charge of the shop…Gabby will have the rest of the week off. Normal hours will resume on Monday…new collections will be arriving while we are gone so we are super excited for Monday following the show!

Now i’d better get the orders shipped so we can get packing…if you are planning on being in Madison–please stop by and say hi, we are in the same spot as last year!

happy stitching! -a&m&g
