Birds of a Feather Mystery Sampler Part 2

Hi everyone!!!

I am back..................not that I went anywhere, my Dad came to visit me from Boston, Massachusetts for my birthday!!! He was here for just about 3 weeks, the time went by so fast while he was here visiting. We got to play cribbage ( I skunked my Dad once!!! - usually he wins). He came to the shop with me every day, he is a huge help at the shops. And he also enjoys visiting with his 4 great grand kids, who are there with us every day.

I did have time to stitch in the evenings and finished part 2 of the Mystery Sampler. The colors are so pretty, especially the birds! Can't wait to see part 3 in a couple of weeks. Hawk Run Hollow fans - there is a new HRH coming out the end of August. It is called the Farms of HRH. Can't wait to see it!!! Have the last 2 blocks on Autumn to get done and that will complete my 5th HRH. Blackbirds Designs has some new goodies for us.............the Loose Feathers Club is starting next month - there will be 3 books in the series. There will also be a book in August where the Blackbird ladies combine different parts of old samplers to make new samplers. Should be interesting!!!

Holly is busy preparing for our Summer Stitching weekend next month. Sue Hillis will be our Special will be ALOT of fun!!!

Got to be going.......Jessie has updated face book and the website with the new goodies in the shop, be sure to check them out. Hope you all are having a great Summer so far, make time to stitch outside - the pure natural sunlight is the best stitching light you could have!!

Take Care,

Margaret, Jessie, Amy,Holly, Kacy, Pam,Cindy and Ann
