~ Busy Hands ~

Good Morning Friends & Folk ~

the days are now being counted minute-by-minute and my time is well-organized!
as you know, I will be heading down the dusty road south to once again be among the wonderful folks of PSS!
I have been blessed to be a member of this Facebook group since it's inception,
and have met so many kind, helpful and talented friends within the group's calm & peaceful corridors ~


The Prim Stitchers' Society 
2nd Annual retreat & Merchant Mall

I have been busy creating new boxes and such for those attending the Merchant Mall, and I am loving the new, Spring-ier color theme I'm using on them…..

still having a few more to finish up in the late & wee hours though, 
I do enjoy creating each & every one of these especially because I know my friends who are needleworkers can relate to their hand drawn  motifs







I'll be bringing the models for my new punch needle and cross stitch designs as well…
here are the most recent models:




almost finished with the third motto design, and will begin the 4th one

Would love to see all your goodies you will bring to the Retreat. Hope I get to go someday. Just received your rug hooks in the mail. The colors are even better in person. Can't wait to use them.
