I'd like to wish you all a Happy Mother's Day and am hoping you are enjoying the glorious warmth of spring in your neck of the woods. Here in Delaware spring keeps making a brief appearance, followed by several days of chill and rain. This weekend the weather report is calling for a Nor Easter -- which will mean more rain with wind and cold. Remind me of how unhappy I was with this weather when a month from now it is in the high 90's and I can't cool off fast enough!
It's been a while since I've posted, but I've been very busy working on some special projects and have just returned from a teaching trip to Atlanta, Georgia for the Sampler Guild of Georgia and the Magnolia Sampler Guild. I had a wonderful time and was so impressed with the hospitality and friendliness of the people I met. Atlanta is a beautiful city and my host, while there, made my stay a lovely and memorable one.
I'm happy to announce that on May 5, 2015, I will be releasing the long awaited, highly anticipated, ;-) "Mayflower Rose Sewing Set." Here is a picture of the fully assembled set:
Nantucket Basket Purse
Also, in my previous email I showed a picture of the basket and smalls donated by the Mayflower Sampler Guild to the yearly cancer research auction at the Attic in Mesa, Arizona. In case you don't remember, here is the picture again:
This beautiful basket was made especially to house the ornament in the lid by a member of the Mayflower Sampler Guild, Janice Card. She kindly agreed to allow me to post her contact information in case you'd like to order a basket from her. Here it is: firstname.lastname@example.org
On another note, check back next week, as I have a special announcement regarding an upcoming event. It is a secret right now, but I hope you will be as excited as I am once it is announced.
Thanks so much for all of your kind words and wonderful emails regarding my designs. I am so humbled and honored to have so many fellow stitchers like what I am doing, especially my sampler designs. Until next week, I wish you fair weather, good health, good fortune, and lots of stitching time.
As always, yours in friendship and stitches,
