Just finished looking at the sale books we have on-line. Well, we try to keep the website in sync with the shop, but that's a hard job.
So.... I took off the books we've already sold and added some sale books we'd never added on-line. What I'm saying is, keep on looking back for new stuff! Here are a couple.

Every year I think I have PLENTY of time to get things done before the holidays. Then reality sets in...
Well this year, my friend Karen designed a quick and easy napkin pattern I just had to try. I love to set a pretty holiday table and these napkins are so quick, I made 14 yesterday. They're SO quick, I not only made some for Thanksgiving, I made some for Christmas. I may even make a few as quick gifts.
Sometimes we jokingly refer to Quilt Country as Kit Country because we like to make kits.... So, since these napkins were so much fun to make, we decided to share... if you can't come by the shop, look on-line to check out these kits if you want something that can be done quickly and looks great.

Well,we've always loved the look and feel of wool but hadn't been able to find any that matched the look and feel of Quilt Country. Guess what we found at this Market? Yummy wool kits!
This one in particular just has me itching to get my needle and floss out. And, it'll be something cheery to work on during the upcoming yucky winter weather.
Who knew there were so many young new designers from Australia? We found several kid's clothing patterns, embroideries and take a look at this whimsical quilt. Can't wait to get started!
Oh. There's just one thing, I guess. We'd better get all the notions, books and patterns we brought back from Market organized, put out on the floor, models made, etc. Of course, there'll be stuff that we couldn't bring back with us coming in for quite a while, too. (Yippee!!) So, maybe my needle and sewing machine will have to wait just a little longer....
