Running up to July 4th…

…with a classic new patriotic runner I call “Running with the Stars.” Obviously, I made this one with July 4th in mind, but stars are great any season with any color. Also, I took the time to calculate three different lengths of runner: 42″ for the center of a table or small table, 60″ for a medium table, and 84″ to fall over the edges–just a matter of how large your table is (or maybe how much time you have.) On sale for $3.50 through the end of this month. Click here.

I get really excited about “Patriotica” this time of the year–I guess it’s after a lifetime of being an Air Force wife. Wives of several generals have bought my runners, throws, pillows and flags to decorate their houses. And vets, too, love their flag. Here’s a view of my little booth in its patriotic regalia, including my new umbrella from my flag photo–taken in Wetumpka in front of the copper doors of the 1905 bank.

My latest little creations have included hanging dish towels like my mother used to have. I spruced them up with embroidery designs to put up for sale in Market Shoppes, Wetumpka. I’m still tweaking the pattern.

I hope to have a pattern of several kitchen designs soon. I’m working on oven mitts and small hot pads.

The one below, made of scraps, sold on Saturday–I guess I should make more, huh?


I have an idea for a BIG KING-SIZED patriotic quilt, too–fabric ready, just have to find the energy to tackle it. In the meantime, I have “Salute the Colors” in queen size out for sale. It can be made ANY size, though–it’s a one-block pattern that is extremely flexible. click here

Yes, that’s an apron made out of a pair of jeans. You’ll have to let me know what you like and which patterns you want to see. I have big, small, classic, 3D, quilted items, etc. I design the way the spirit moves me or when someone is interested and pushes me. I’m thinking about how to get the Cuddle Bear onto regular typing paper…that’s another one on the burner.

Lots happening, but it’s so exciting to be in Wetumpka of HGTV fame these days. We have visitors from all over the the US, and I love talking with them!
