Summer's Last Rose and Merry Christmas




Summer's Last Rose is the third Loose Feathers pattern for the year 2012. It went to the printer yesterday which means it should be in our warehouse next Monday or Tuesday. The distributors should have it by Thursday. This all means it will be in your local shop in three weeks.  The medium sized book box shown above right was covered with fabric. All instructions are in the pattern. The box is the medium size from Hobby Lobby. sku# 379727 - Medium - 5” x 2” x 7 1/2". 

The basket pictured along the bottom of the pattern is also from Hobby Lobby. (Dark brown small rectangular basket, sku#177733 - 9 1/2” x 3” x 3 5/8”.) 


Barb loves to hang her Christmas samplers year round in her home. She enjoys holiday cheer all through the year. Even though this piece expresses a sentiment we love to share with our family and friends, the message is subtle. The colors are so joyful that no one will notice that this holiday decoration has not been packed away! 

Merry Christmas will be in your local shop in three weeks also.

We have some prizes to give away!


 Ten people will win 4 each of the Moda Candy packs. The ones above are from our Meadow line of fabric.These are just the right size to make some of the patterns given by each designer during the blog hop.Our pattern can be found here. Although these fabrics are not the Cinnamon Spice fabric line shown on the pattern...these would be very cute too! (We will have another contest soon for some of our Cinnamon Spice so not to worry.)

 Two grand prize winners will each win a Meadow layer cake.  

Leave a comment and we will pick a winner on Thursday! 

Don't forget to visit the designers listed below: Today is their day to share in the Moda "Oh So Sweet" blog hop.

    My husband and I like your latest designs. We are about to share our first Christmas together as newlyweds. I was stitching a Loose Feathers design when we first spoke to one another last year; in fact, my future husband-to-be's first words to me were: "Is that the same thing you were stitching the other night at the cafe?" Your designs are special to us, thankyou. Belinda
