Meet Bling...My latest Epattern Release!

Whoohoo...it's the first day of school, and Matt has returned back to work from vacation.  It's QUIET around here!  Even the pup is taking in all the peace with a morning nap.

Today I'm releasing my latest epattern design, Bling the Penguin!  Bling is a very quick to make stand alone design that can also be made into an ornament.  Resize the pattern and make a family of these little dudes marching across a window sill for winter.  So cute!  I made several of these for my craft shows, and they were such a hit!  Supplies are easy to find, and I may even put together a few kits for sale soon.  Find Bling here on my blog or in my Etsy shop.

Check out this beautiful bowl of red rose hips I picked over the weekend after taming back a very unruly beast of a bush.  I'm going to dry and then scent them with a wonderful cinnamon bun or pumpkin spice scent.  I love having bowls of these scented fixins around the house.  With that cool, crisp morning air already here, fall is rapidly approaching.  There will be nothing like the wonderful aroma of these once the windows are shut up tight for our nine months of rain... Oh, I'm not complaining; that justifies more time for stitchin'!!
