First, let me send out a huge THANK YOU to each and every one of my customers and perspective customers!! As with all new ventures, there are growing pains...and at dixiesamplar hand~dyed fabrics, we are experiencing one at present...a good day to post that is convenient for as many as possible!

Sadly, I cannot please everyone with this particular concern, so I must go with my gut...and, with my family and work demands, that... means that I will have to go back to and remain with Sunday evenings at 7:00 pm (central). I am sorry for anyone that cannot work with that timeframe due to location or prior commitments, but it is truly the only free time I have for the foreseeable future! I appreciate your consideration and support, and hope that you will continue to stop by and visit each week when a new batch is posted.

A Sweet Treat RAK

Deena surprised me and April with a sweet little package of Halloween treats...yummy candies (oh yes, they are gone :-), two adorable Halloween-themed ribbon trims, an awesomely spooky handstitched and handmade door hanger, and a new spooktacular Halloween design from my favorite designer..."Jack in the Hat" ~ Nan Lewis/Threadwork Primitives !!!!

Halloween Sweet Treat RAK ~ Deena
I love all of my new little treats...and am so thankful for such thoughtful and generous stitching buddies. And, to make it even more fun, the three of us are going to stitch the design as a mini SAL :-) So excited to get started...already have my threads and fabric ready to go, and am trying to come up with a unique finish for it...what to do, what to do!! Maybe a tie-on for my Longaberger Trick or Treat basket I use to give out candy on Halloween :-)

Thanks again. Deena...looking forward to our SAL kickoff tomorrow :-)

The Finish Line

Woohoo, I finally have a finish to share...and thank God, cause this was starting to drive me bat-shit crazy...finished her at 0338...that's three thirty eight in the morning for you nonmilitary folk, LOL!!!

My co-worker, Jane, asked me to stitch this for her grand-daughter, Mari...her birthday was June 19th, so I am a bit late, LOL! I now have to mount it on a sewing box and fill it with stitching goodies as Mari is a new stitcher. I think this is my last consignment piece, folks...just don't have it in me anymore to stitch things that I do not enjoy!!

"Pug" freebie
Mari and her family have a pug named Mia, and this little pug face looks just like her...I sure hope Mari likes it :-) Sorry for the wrinkles, still need to wash and press her.

Trying to catch up on Hemlock Grove on Netflix...made the mistake of watching the first episode to see what it was I am hooked! Still have 30 pieces of fabric to prep and dye for tomorrow's posting as well...all while dealing with a freaking migraine...pretty sure I won't be getting any sleep tonight either...

Good news=now I get to start stitching some I'll enjoy...Harvest Exchange goodie...until later!!
