Hi Everyone! There’s lots going on in the studio! I’ve added some really adorable new products to my online shop::


Among the new items are hand-painted wooden ornaments (imported from Australia, so I probably won’t be able to re-order in time for the holidays- if you see something you like, grab it now…), and some new Christmas themed decorative pins.



I’ve also added a very handy tool for marking HST’s to my shop- this is the tool that I use:



And, because I use Heat n Bond so much for my own fusible machine applique, I’ve added a couple of Heat n Bond products to my shop as well:

I’ve also been working on a project for an upcoming blog post:


It’s time for the Aurifil Block of the Month pattern for November! Get the pattern and read about this month’s designer, “Go-Go” Kim, here at the Aurifil blog! (You may recognize Kim as one of our featured bloggers for the Maggie’s First Dance Block of the Month.)


Hope you are having a peaceful and creative week! I am getting ready for daughter to come home from college in a few days- thinking about where we’ll go shopping, “do lunch,” which movies we will go see…. I’m always so happy and excited to hang out with my kids :)
