How can we be thinking fall already but we are! Notice that there are a few on line needlework markets - which is great. I am participating in The Fall Harvest Market Hop. It will take place Sept. 10-13, 2015. As you know I will be teaching in Buffalo and then on to Cambridge, ON at that time, and my helper will also be on holidays - this was planned before the dates of the market were known- and this creates a bit of a problem for shipping for me in a timely fashion. We will see what we do here.... I have to think about it. I wrote this beginning of August and here we are the middle of August already. I think we have figured it out what we will do, it's nice to have a solution. We will post it on the blog post with the market news. Dale and I did get away for an extended weekend out west, through the mountains over to the Shuswap in BC. The top picture is a picture of the Rogers Pass, it is so beautiful driving through the mountains, it gets one all prepared to relax which is great.
I do have to let you know about the newest pattern in the seasonal series that began with The Spring Bird, then The Summer Flower and now we have released The Autumn Acorn. It is still pink, those of you know me that pink and I don't always agree..... but this whole series has pinks in it!! and I rather enjoyed it! Move over Terra cotta! It also have a few fun stitches in it, but a real cross stitch base- so nice for a new to specialty stitches stitcher! There is an embellishment package available with the silks and beads necessary to complete the piece.
We will posting soon about the new goods for the Fall and look for that to come.
If you did not know already also have a look on the Craftsy -www.craftsy.com site that is now running the Cross Stitch Basics and Beyond class that was produced in May. It is a fun and informative little journey in our favourite pastime.
