My SIL from North Carolina has added four more stockings to her long list of Reets projects.  She is putting me to shame . . . she has made a stocking for almost everyone in her extended family!  I love how she changes the patterns.   Snowman Dance looks warm and wonderful . . he doesn't have to be a Bellringer.  Why didn't I think of that.  Love the neutral background and plaid toe and heel.   She made two pink Santa Brings The Tree stockings as well.  Beautiful appliqué job Antoinette.

 Never too early to get going on Christmas projects!

But whatever you are stitching up . . 
I hope it is adding joy to your day.

Just back from a very good Sewing and Stitchery Expo in Puyallup Washington.  I was so happy to see my Quiltmania friends Carol and Claire.  They had a wonderful booth.  Look for their beautiful magazines at your next show.

Many of you ask what our best selling patterns are and of course that changes a bit from show to show.   But this little pattern, even though it has been around awhile, ranks right at the top almost every show.   Love those "little mighties".   Thank you Mini Scissors Case.  Best selling kit right now seems to be Wickedy Jig.  Will try to get the kit back on the website as soon as we can get them restocked.

Sewing and Stitchery Expo is always the first weekend in March.  Try and make it next year.  A show robust with demos, classes, lectures and lots of vendors.
