“Take your needle, my child, and work at your pattern; it will come out a rose by and by. Life is like that – one stitch at a time taken patiently and the pattern will come out all right like the embroidery.” — Oliver Wendell Holmes

Hot off the press--here's a new pattern for you to work on during those long winter nights that are heading our way.
It's called "Springtime Sampler" and is a mixture of patchwork and applique, made up in several sections and then pieced together. By the time spring comes, you'll be ready to display it! Go to the New Patterns page on my website if you'd like to order it from me, or ask for it at your local quilt shop.
Author (how cool that I can finally honestly claim that!), quilter, pattern designer,and manic crafter. I love anything beat up, showing its wrinkles, worn down by time. Wife to long-suffering Ben since 1976, mother to amazing kids--Charissa and Geoff. Love traveling and discovering prim/antique/quilt shops along the way and I love spending time at home surrounded by my favourite things.
