ruru marie

thought i’d pop in quick with some new romantic florals…

Ruru Marie by Quilt Gate features just a handful of prints…large florals, tiny florals, and gorgeous floral stripes.

perfect for mixing with your favorite florals for a Primrose Garden or shabby Lucy Boston PotC…

Ruru Marie has been loaded to the shoppe…you can grab some here.

i love how it looks with that yarn…soft and pretty and perfect for bringing in a little color as they days turn cold and the nights get longer.

well i’d best get back to cutting and bundling.

happy stitching!

sandals and snow

good afternoon! i started this post last week…the day of that 2nd snowfall…the snowfall that stuck. i had worn sandals…so i was shoveling in flip flops…and so it goes!

i never did finish up that blog post…so i decided today is the day.

the rest of our September collections have arrived…

first up is Dover…soft tones of green, blue, grey, and cream…a great way to escape to the sea without leaving your living room. you can grab some dover here.

finally…Yesterday arrived. Jo Morton’s newest collection is filled to the brim with what i like to think of as “classic Jo Morton”. little prints in soft shades of brown, tan, red, cheddar, and blue…perfect for adding to your civil war stash or a perfect collection to start one. Grab precuts and yardage of Yesterday here.

good morning! mom and i are back from bemidji. we had a wonderful time teaching Brazilian Embroidery, catching up with Bonnie, and kicking off our shows for 2020.

we’ve been getting the shop switched around to showcase some of our favorite collections…right now…we are falling in love with Rue 1800. Soft, gentle, sweet, summery…perfect florals, classic paisleys, gorgeous colors of rose, porcelain, dove, robin’s egg, and cobblestone. i want to drop everything i’m doing and start cutting up a jelly roll (what i would make i’m not quite sure but the colors are so welcomed after a chilly winter).

the precuts for this collection include honeybuns which work wonderfully with 1/2 inch hexies (if you are looking for a summery hand project)…a stars in the garden would be lovely!

we sprung for the entire 40 bolt collection because we couldn’t pick just 10 or 12 or 18 or 32. they are all just so pretty and the florals are a mixture of new and some classic which makes them perfect for mixing with their previous collections…especially Poetry, Porcelain, and Victoria. The dove and cobblestone lean more towards a brown…but still has a slight grey tone to it…truly lucsious!

here they are all snuggled into the mantle…(the colors are even prettier in person!)

all the yardage and precuts are online now…grab your favorites right here.

also…some new fingering yarn from the Uluru Collection by Queensland

gabby-goo is getting impatient so i’d better get going.

have a wonderful evening!
