New Rugs to Hook

Well the show is over and for my first show it was a lot of fun. I had my two elves, my sisters, helping me and would not have been able to do it without them. I am still recovering from the hectic weeks of busyness so basically just vegging out and doing nothing much. Have to post to my website some of the goodies I set aside and some new kits I released this week.
Two are rug hooking and the other two are punch needle. You get everything you need except for the hoops. Here are the two rug hooking ones. A beautiful red cardinal using quite a bit of British wool with lots of texture and a quick and easy snowman - perfect for gift giving. I only have limited amounts available and that will be it for this year.

You can find them here on my website.

I also added some great little scissor snips and mother of pearl sewing accessories on my website. Wonderful to add a vintage look to your sewing box. These are a beautiful quality and each mother of pearl piece is different from each other. You can find them under the category Needlework Necessities.

I will be posting more new things in the upcoming days..Here is one of my punch needle ornaments that has been spoken for. When I have a minute I will post some pics of the show - I took them quickly so who knows what they will look like. Off to Vermont for the annual pre-Christmas shopping marathon that the ladies in our family love to partake in - It's girls weekend shopping!

Yes We Can!

Last night was a very emotional and unbelievable evening. I waited with bated breath for the polls to come in and to hear that Obama was the new president of the USA. It was a magical evening filled with hope on the faces in the crowds of people gathered all over the world.

As a Canadian I am thrilled with the choice they have made. It was a day I wish that I was an American so I could vote too!

I wish Obama and the US much success in the new path they have chosen for the upcoming years.
