Dick and I have made some big changes for the year to come!! We are downsizing to free us up to do the things we have always wanted to do ..... that is.... free to travel, spend more time together, follow His lead for new adventures, no more retail store after 27 years, more time with kids, but still MORE ART and probably some sewing classes for girls ..... that is a dream right now ..... but the ART won't stop, it will be here on the blog as soon as we finish remodeling our NEW/OLD smaller home about 20 miles away. SO STAY TUNED ... we'll be having a big sale and beautiful house and property SALE in the SUMMER!! MORE FREEDOM ON IT'S WAY!!! WooHoo!!! And THANKS for all your support the last twenty seven years in my shop!!!

Too fun I say!!! Too fun!! It's funny, I couldn't CUT my patterns!!! Sooo the first pattern journal I made with printed papers (below)and wrapping from the 70's was for my sister!! Since  Mary Ann makes journals for her sis....  That is what I did!!  Then I made a boy , Lucas, who went to camp for the first time a journal(above and upside down), sewn of course!!! THEN I FINALLY got brave and started to cut my patterns that I painted myself!!!  I have five piles of patterns that I think work together. Starting (it is at the top, laid out) with the least favorite and will insert a little drawing I had of our donkey....loved him so!  He is now at a children's camp since we downsized. This journal is BIG. Just the front page cover is laid out.  So far....  Still thinking how to sew that big baby since I already cut all those patterns!!! Maybe I'll finish it tomorrow.  Yawn.....sorry, they are in reverse order and Luca's is upside down!  Well, you get the idea!!  I KNOW MARY DOES!!
