Happy October!

I have not been able to get in to my website for several days so I'm updating for October at last!

It was so lovely to be able to drive to Charlotte, NC and be with my Carolinas Sampler Guild friends last weekend!!!  I presented my Scottish Antique Sampler Interactive Lecture and then taught my Scottish Mini 4 Commandment Sampler.  It was the first time since Covid hit that I've taught in person and being with dear friends from Charlotte was priceless!


I zipped home and had more sampler notecards made so now there will be packs of 10 for $19.  They are up on my Shop page now but I'm flying away to teach at Salty Yarns tomorrow and won't be back until 10/11 so won't be able to fill orders until next week.  The cards come with envelopes and feature 10 different samplers from my American, Scottish, and English collection are featured.  


I'm still working on a Salty Yarns Surprise  project so I ordered instructions and charts featuring a photo of the pattern rather than the finished product.  I'll slip it into a frame to show in Ocean City, MD but plan to add pdf designs, templates and instructions for a needlebook option with a scissor keeper and pinwheel when I get back home.  The title is SALTY YARNS - MERMAID MOON.  I'll put it up in the Shop next week.

I'll be presenting my Sampler Stories Interactive Antique Show and teaching the Sampler Stories Huswif to 70 students at the Salty Yarns Jamboree and am looking forward to every minute!  So much to do between now and then!

May you stay clear of all Ghoulies and Ghosties this month and enjoy the beauty of autumn.
