This is so sweet! This was the stitchery from our winter contest! Ann Jones made it into a quilted wall hanging & added an embroidered border.....from......Winter Wonderland???? Am I right? Very pretty Ann! She writes that now she's going to get back to work on a Winter Wonderland that she's making for her mom's Christmas present... only two big blocks left! WooHoo!!!! If one of them is the candy cane clothesline one, I apologize..... I LOVE to embroider, but for some reason I really hated stitching that block! Guess I shouldn't admit that.... after all I designed the darn thing!! LOL!!!! Sorry, sorry, sorry!.... Good work Ann!
This is Remember Me by Beverly Shultz. I LOVE the ticking stripes!!! She set the blocks to accomodate the eight signatures of her tea friends. She says that she did this right before she & her husband relocated & she wanted a wonderful reminder of all the tea times they'd had together over the years. How sweet she is!! She did it as a tablecloth.... in the round! Beautiful Beverly!! Oh! It's hand quilted also!! She's also done a machine embroidered valance for the breakfast room in her new home to match the quilt design & now it's very much her "tea room"! I'm sure it won't be long until you fill your table with many new tea & stitchery friends in your new home!!
I have many others to post but I'm going to have to wait till tomorrow! Phil just got home wanting dinner, I'm sure..... and the copier "dude" is here fixing "The Beast", our big color printer. If it doesn't get fixed tonight, the new patterns can't be released on Friday!!! YIKES!!

I need to send a big "I'm Sorry!" to everyone who had sent in photos of their projects! I'll have time to post them as soon as these patterns are done. In the midst of all the new pattern hubub we've had computer problems, printer problems & MORE computer problems! Our computer "dude" claims that we have gremlins & that we need to put live plants around the studio to keep them busy so that they leave the electronic equipment alone............ hmmmmmm............ don't quite know if I'm ready for THAT one!!!!
Just a note to everyone who has posted comments, "THANK YOU!!!" We love to hear from you! One thing though that we can't do is email you back with answers to questions, etc... because we don't receive your email address with your comment. YIKES!! You can reach us directly through the website however, or you can email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Talk to you later! I have to finish adding barcodes to the pattern backs so that we can start printing!
