~*New Magazine Coming*~

Hello Dear Friends!

Have you heard?  Did you know there is a new magazine coming out?  

It is due to be released late this Spring!  I'm so excited!  

There is already a great list of artists ready to submit patterns... and I'm so proud to say I am one of them.  YAH!  

My plans for today... to finish my model.  It is punched and waiting for finishing.  I can't wait to show it to you... but I must.

Swing by the website and check out the magazine... I just know you will be as excited as I am!


Here are a few other things going on in my studio...

My 2nd woven, rag rug is off the loom.  I was having a heck of a time with the warp tension.  It could be the way it was wound around the back bar of the loom... or it could be the warp material itself.  It still finished pleasing to me... and has found a home on our dining room table...

The edges of the house and flag rug have been whipped with wool yarn.  This is such a fun rug!  I love the brightness of it!  And the scrappy background!

I think this one was shared with you before... maybe?  It is a kit purchased from Judy Cripps of Rustic Rugs.  The last time I went to her home for the hook~in, I didn't take a project along to work on.  So, I bought this small kit to hook while I was there.  It has been hooked for awhile... but is now officially finished with whipped edges... and a rusty jingle bell for an eye...

More weaving is in the works.  It is my goal to keep a project going on the loom as much as possible.  This will be #3 this year...

And more punching projects are drawn up...

Primitive Handmades Mercantile updates this week... Thursday night... 9pm CST!  I have three pieces finished... but can't share them just yet.  Hopefully I will have many more for a really wonderful update to share!  Oh... and you will definitely want to enter in the giveaway that is planned!  There will be many GREAT prices!!!

Wishing you all warm smiles...

I had hopes for the Prims magazine...but all they ever illustrate are dolls, dolls, and more dolls....this will be a welcome read for all of us who love to stitch, rughook, and needlepunch. I love all designers who will be featured in this premier issue....can't wait!!!
