BBD Photos from Nashville

Be sure to check out the new photos on Alma's website.  Lots of scenes from their area at the Nashville market and their new pieces.  A fun way to spend a few minutes on this snowy morning when the new BBD patterns that I ordered are in at my LNS, but there is too much snow to get over there!  Have fun...

Eye Candy from/for Everyone!

I just spent a good twenty minutes checking out new releases from the Nashville market at

She has about ten pages of fun things shown (and for sale, so watch out).  I love all the BBD things.  Their new book is awesome...easily as good as Joyeux Noel, in my opinion.

Have fun dreaming while the snow is falling!

New BBD Things

Here is a link showing the new BBD patterns.  I guess the Loose Feathers replacement is Anniversaries of the Heart.  Also some cute bird pincushions and....a cupcake!  Check it out!

Finished is Good!

I took my February Hearts to be framed yesterday.  Can hardly wait to see it.  It feels wonderful to have another finish.  Now I must go forth and apply that philosophy to real life today!

Good Morning -

I was excited to see a new post from Alma on the BBD blog and then was very happy to see some great pictures, many of which were from Kindred Spirits.  Also stockings on 40 count.  I was wondering about that. 

Be sure to check out their blog today for some Valentine eye candy!

Small Needle Cushions

Here are a couple of photos of our blackbird friendship needle cushions designed by Sharon Schlemmler. 

Some are better than others...what can I say?  Mine is the lumpy one without a closure tab.  I have closure issues!

"Her Name was Lola"

Rose's cat, Lola, was pleased as punch that her mama and friends were spending a cozy night at home with her Thursday night while we worked on our blackbird friendships needle cushions.  There was a whole lot of purring going on, and some antics as well.

Blackbird Friendships - A Wrapped Pincushion Souvenir Project - Update

Another "Monkey see, Monkey do" project.  When Rose started work on the little souvenir pincushion last week, shown in the post below, I decided it looked like a super easy stitch, but not such an easy finish, so I jumped on board, hoping to get some help in putting it together while she did hers.  Now both Carol and I have just about completed the stitching, and the three of us are getting together on Thursday to complete the projects.  I doubt that I would have put it together on my own, so I am thrilled.  And besides, it's a real fun way to enjoy a February day in Ohio. 8-)
