A lovely day...

Warm sunshine was pouring in the studio windows today...
a perfect late summer day!

Maggie Bonanomi's NEWest book...
Thistle Down Moon

There are still copies available on the website and you can preview the index there too.
Maggie never disappoints us...it is another fabulous book with 19 prim projects!

I've been enjoying Jill Peterson's newest book
They Make DO
It's perfect to curl up with a cup of tea after along day!
You can see this one on the website, too.

Bolts and bolts of gorgeous wool will be arriving soon...



The 3rd Part of Primitive Medallions is in the works! I'm working hard to get these out in the mail next week!


Tomorrow is 3rd Friday Open Studio Hooking/Stitching!
it will be great to see all the regulars again...it's been such a crazy summer around here and I have missed everyone so much!

Autumn is in the air...

Hello My Wooly Friends,
Happy Labor Day...the 1st of September...
and a glorious morning here on the Northern Prairie!

Summer has flown by and I'm settling into Empty-Nest-Hood
A strange territory...but I'm muttling along...

I've been absent here...ticking things off my insanely long to-do list...
with hopes of finishing a clients rug this week...
Shelley has been oh so patient with me!
I'll be at the frame today, pulling the last loops...the binding will come this week...in between days spent helping my folks.

I'm so blessed to still have my parents!
And happy to be able to help them stay in their home...
for months now, I've been there at least 4 days a week...hopefully we are close to getting some help for a couple days a week!
I need to get back in the studio...prep for the Autumn Valley Hook-In...schedule some classes...and just spend some time soothing my soul by creating!


My newest stitch design...Magic Spells...is now available on Early Work Mercantile
I've had fun stitching some small, portable projects...but have the itch to get going on some big rug designs...stay tuned!

Wishing you all a wonderful day
♥ ~L

Busy as a Bee this past weekend...and it was lovely!
I finally had a chance to dig in the dirt...

15 pints of Cherries!
Hope you had a sweet weekend, too!

In the studio & a little thread therapy...

Hello Friends,
Hope you are all having a good week!
I've been playing with linen and thread...
a little therapy to help me get back on track!
So many family things going on this summer that I feel a little out of sorts in the studio.
I found a stitch I did awhile back and finished into a sweet pocket.
Nudged by requests and have finally gotten the pattern together...
Both PDF Instant Downloadable and Printed Paper versions are available in my Etsy shop...

New WOOl will be arriving any day...
Lovely Textures!!!

Saturday is Open Hooking & Stitching in the studio...
it will be so fun to see everyone!
