Holiday Magic Begins at Home! Things to do... Places to go...

The holidays are fast approaching and here are some of the things I have recently been working on in the last week. Clearly, the sock easy and ribbons are always on hand in my studio.

The poinsettia sock is one of the gift ideas in this month's newsletter which you can join on the home page of the website. The poinsettia also looks pretty on holiday coasters and cocktail napkins.

Another fun Newletter project this month is baby leggings with the sock easy. The directions are included, so imagine the free poinsettia design on leggings with matching socks and perhaps several of them encircling the neckline of a baby shirt - all with ribbons. You will want to see how easy it is done. I didn't put the full Halloween set I just finished, as that is for a joint project with a fun and creative friend, but oh the sock is adorable - wish you could see it right now.

To my friends that needed a clearer way to see how the ribbon flower is done, we have just put up a new video and turned the ribbon flowers into napkin rings that go together quickly while adding sparkle to your table.
See the video

Stella, my toy poodle is looking quite nervous as she knows I am busy whipping up a new accessory for her so I should have those up when I return from the International Embroidery Conference which is next week.

Needless to say I am going crazy throwing things in suitcases and cutting out the final kits for my classes. Oh and my club meets on Monday and I need to finish up that project, too.

For those that live in Dixie and would like a fun Quilting Activity visit the Landmark Park Quilt show. For more information, call Landmark Park at 334-794-3452 .

I do want to mention that Ashby Sewing has opened their new store and it is really very nice. The ribbon cutting was yesterday and it was a fun time.

The store is arranged very nicely and has quite an amazing parking lot but that is their story to tell. So do ask them about that parking lot if you visit the store.

Enjoy the weekend, I am going back to throwing things into cases! Me included! hugs, Cookie
