Celebration of Life

Hello All!

I was just checking back at March blog posts and it was full of fun projects and events.  Unfortunately, on March 26, I lost my husband Chuck after a long illness.  Life sure does take a turn and as graciously as you can, you stop while the world spins around you.  Chuck was always very supportive of my Designing, very proud and one of my biggest cheerleaders.  He would want me to continue down this path and I will, making him as proud as I can.  Thank you to those of you who have sent condolences, to those of you that knew him and have been willing to share your memories of him.  We will be celebrating on Saturday, May 4 from 5:00 – 8:00 pm with a Potluck.  This is what he wanted and no one loved a potluck more than he did.  Our family will gather, our children and grandchildren to “Celebrate.”  We hope you and your family will come and join us.  Bring a covered dish to share if you wish.

The Final “Snowbuddie” Embroidery Pattern -  I was so proud that I had them all designed, but here we are a bit late getting the final design out to you.  We began last May with the June themed block, so we have come full circle.  Remember that these designs are only available to download until May 3lst and will be removed at that time.  The complete pattern will come out at a later date.  Available now is the complete kit of the “Snowbuddies” project available in wool.  See our March 8 Blog for pictures and information on this project.

“HAPPY SPRING” CHATALAINE -  I promised you a Project of the Month and here is one that you will love.  It is quick and easy.  So….featured is this Chatalaine kit that features 1 ½ yds of woven green ribbon that has “Happy Spring” printed on it.  At one end of the ribbon you construct a 2 ½” X 2 ½” wool pin cushion that has three pretty little wool flowers appliqued on it.  The other end of the ribbon is folded over with a snap attached so that you can snap on your favorite scissors.  This kit is being offered for $7.25 and if you order by April 30, we will include three cute pins with Buttons on the head of the pin for Free ($4.75 Value).  (I glued these myself last night!!) These kits can be found on our etsy shoppe, Wooly Moments.

FREEBIE FOR APRIL -  Leave a Blog comment or sign up as a Member of our Blog by April 30 and we enter your name into a drawing for a Free “Happy Spring” Chatalaine and Button Pins.  We will have our drawing on May 1.  Hope you win!!

Painted Backdoor -  Savannah and I are breaking out the paint and brushes and plan to finish our Backdoor project.  Winter and cold weather brought us to a halt, but we plan to put our finishing touches on it.  We will post a photo as soon as we complete it.
