New Quilt Pattern

Flying Goose Corner
It has been a while since I have turned out a quilt pattern, but here is a new one using the Holly Taylor Botanical line. I think it works well as either a Christmas wall hanging or a table canter.It measures slightly over 36 inches square and goes together real easy.
This past week we have been very busy getting things ready for the Houston Market. While we will not be attending, we will have several new items there that some of or distributors and quilt shops are taking.The last of everything went out today, so we are all kind of resting tonight.
However, just as I finish one project I have about 5 others going in my brain, so as soon as I can see my way clear of the clutter from our busy week, I will be ready to go on to the next thing. You will have to keep watching as around the first of the year we will be ready with a whole new line of Vintage ornaments.
Thanks to all of you who have been such good customers this past year, drop us a line and tell us what you are up to; we love to hear from our customers! I really enjoy visiting with shop owners when they call in orders.
Well, keep those needles oiled up for some fun stitching coming your way real soon.
Happy Stitching! Carol

Taking Time To Reflect


Today I took some time to just sit outside and enjoy the beautiful weather. Although I shared it with the ladybugs and box elder bugs, it still was awesome.
The leaves are some of Gods best work
surrounded by a clear blue sky,
it seems to take my breath away
and leaves me with a nature high!
It was quiet, no wind, so I had time to think, and this fall weather always makes me nostalgic. I remember piling up the leaves with my brothers and sisters and then jumping into the pile, the smell of leaves that are burning, and the clear, cool fall air in the evening. The harvest moon that shines so bright and lights up the dark, and pumpkins that now peak out after the frost has taken their leaves. A high school football game on a Friday night in our small hometown, meeting our friends and having no idea what was going on in the game. We were having too much fun
on the sidelines. Supporting my sons at their football games, now my grandsons are playing. How did that happen? It was just yesterday when they were little jumping in my leaf piles as I tried to clean the yard. Life has a way of getting away from you.
Both of my parents passed away in the fall, Dad in September, Mom in October, a brother in November.......not all at the same time,.......... thank you God.
Our hometown has just lost a young soldier serving in Afganistan, 22 years old, a bright, young man devoted to his country......leaves behind a grieving family and community. It's just hard to put it all together sometimes and makes sense of it. Thank God for FAITH.....and something to busy my hands.
Happy Stitching! Carol
