Rockin' Applique Alphabet

Take a look at my new machine embroidery collection, Rockin' Applique Alphabet, now available on the website! This is a great lower case alphabet with a lot of "energy" for using on all of your embroidered and quilted projects. The collection would also make a great gift  for any machine embroidery fan on your list.

We're always looking for alphabet collections to personalize things like baby and kid quilts or anytime we want to add text to our projects. They would also be great on some of your Party with Patrick projects. And the applique letters are super easy to stitch out, too.

Take a look at our machine embroidery page to see illustrations of the entire alphabet. I hope you like the collection.

You can still choose the option of joining for the entire first year, if you'd like, and you'll get all of the project packets from July 2010 through June 0f 2011. 

'Tis the season to party!

Cheers :-)

I've been telling you about all of the new colors coming for my Fizz and Dot-to-Dot collections for Robert Kaufman Fabrics and now you can see them all on the RKF website! (The ones to the right are just a sampling.)

Stop by and check them out and start dreaming of all of the wonderful things you're going to make with them when they hit your local quilt shops in January :)

You can see Fizz here and Dot-to-Dot here. I don't even want to get started on all of the other new fabrics coming very soon (because it would take too long to go into right now) but you won't believe how many there are. I'll start giving you some sneak peeks as soon as I have time to get some of them scanned.

Happy Friday! :-)

A lucky day for a fan!

I was so looking forward to an uninterrupted, creative day at the studio. Ri-i-i-ight - First thing this morning, the fridge breaks down. We get a repairman...could just be a switch...blah, blah, blah. Pay him 50 bucks to tell us to trash it and get a new one. So, within an hour, I buy a new fridge, so that we don't also lose everything in the freezer. This couldn't have happened at another time of year, maybe?

Oh well...not my lucky day. But it is Dorothy Fry's lucky day because she is the winner of a signed copy of "A Patrick Lose Christmas" and a stack of Satinesque Stripe fat quarters!!! All that, just for being a fan on at least one of my fan pages. Congratulations to Dorothy and thanks to ALL of you for entering! Be on the lookout for more contests in the future only for fans ;-)

And, I hope your day is luckier than mine!
