I've come to the end of what I'm willing to part with of the sampler prints from the Nell's Flower Garden line. I have 1 set of quarter yard cuts of 5 different colors, black, red, green, multi and ginger. Details are over on my Stash Sale Blog.

Edited to say they've been Sold. :)

Cupcake anyone?.....

Couldn't sleep last night, normally I fall into bed and am out within minutes. Tossed and turned, did all those silly things we all do thinking it will help and finally gave up. These are what came from my restlessness, I think my favorite so far.

Edited to add that I am way behind on emails but plan to catch up in the next couple of days. :)

Mermaid Floss Tag.....

My itchy fingers didn't have to wait long - I decided to spend some time with the Mermaid Sampler kit while company was here last week. It's stitched over one with a few design details changed because of the size and every stitch was a pleasure. Then I decided such a special design needed special thread drops. I played around with some metallic colors but ended up designing something in my photo software. It's hard to see in the photo but the drops have little dots of colors taken from the stitched design.

Shepherd's Bush - Mermaid Sampler variation

Speaking of the metallic thread drops, I've added them to my Stash Sale as well as new fabric choices.

I hope everybody is finding a way to stay cool, I'm counting the days until fall arrives.....

Sneak Peek.....

A couple of weeks ago Diane decided she couldn't keep the final piece of the Rhapsody In Red set a secret any longer. Truthfully, it was no small miracle that she kept it secret as long as she did. :) The pictures below are JUST a rough mock-up made from screen shots of the design, just imagine silk and trim and hardware to get an idea of what the final piece will actually look like. Diane has more information and pictures on her website - Sampler Cove Designs.

What about Rhapsody In Red part 4 you ask? It's coming very soon.

Emily - the Halloween fabric can be found Here.
