Quilt Shop Plunder & Another Sneak Peek ~

Joan & I had a great time yesterday in Charlottesville, VA ~
We first visited Cottonwood, a quilt shop located off of Barracks Road…

Here are the fabrics I came home with:

"Reds" ~

Since I will be a vendor at the From Our Hands show in November,
I am already working on Holiday & Everyday finished goods…
these fabrics will be put to very good use in my creations for that show!
 "Browns" ~

Yes, these have light-colored backgrounds, but to me they are browns because of their brown motifs…
birds & bees and florals will work their way into some of my Holiday finished goods for the above-mentioned show :)

"Harvest" ~

not your idea of 'harvest colors'??
...think pumpkins, cornstalks & cornsilk…
curly stems, vines and leaves
and even a crow or two ~
...see them now?

 "Hallowe'en" ~

I think these are just plain fun and go together so well….

{{a dress for a pumpkinfolk-gal perhaps??}}

cotton print fabric with owls, bats, stars…more vines too!
and that black tulle? oh….I think I know exactly what I'll do with that ~

and here's the sneak peek ------->>>>

Felicia finished stitching the model for my upcoming release:
"Reginald Ravyne"

a very dapper-fellow indeed….

... is he heading to the corn crib?

don't lose your key Reginald!

...He has a girlfriend, 
"Cornelia Crowe"

she should be finished soon ;)

I am HOPING (operative word here) to release ALL of my new designs 
for cross stitch, punch needle & wool appliqué
next week so you can begin your Autumn Stitching ~

keep your eye on this blog for that news :)

Have a beautiful evening my friends ~
