A New Beginning

Simply put, this is my wish for the New Year. The outgoing one was riddled with far too much violence and soul-crushing sadness. May we all come together with a renewed spirit of Hope, Love and Peace.

Happy New Year,

Where does the time go?

Little Sophie is a year old already! Seems like not that long ago she was a tiny preemie in the hospital, those big, dark eyes studying all the large humans who came to see and love her, including Daddy, here feeding her.

She's grown into one of the happiest babies I've ever known, and practically walking now. Nana will be on her way to help you celebrate your first birthday this weekend!

I hope your Christmases were merry and bright. Best wishes for a safe, healthy and Happy New Year to you all!

Just a little note to say Thank You! for your Thanksgiving weekend and Cyber Monday orders! People got some great deals. I'm working to get them all shipped out as quickly as I can.

Thanks again!

Cyber Monday

Tomorrow is the biggest online sales day of the year - Cyber Monday. The third and final day in a trifecta of holiday selling events that start the day after Thanksgiving.

In addition to the 23% discount I've offered since Friday, selected cross-stitch, needlepunch and doll patterns have been reduced even before the discount. I'll be phasing out these patterns beginning now and through 2013. Get a stash-building free overdyed floss when you purchase any cross-stitch or needlepunch pattern. It's time for a major down-sizing!

Happy Cyber Monday shopping, wherever you shop. There are a lot of great sales going on.

Thanksgiving Weekend

Hope you had a bountiful and family-filled Thanksgiving like we did! The house is quiet once again. It was wonderful to have my granddaughter, Sophie, here for a couple of days, even though she was a little fussy due to a cold. She'll be one next month! It doesn't seem that long ago that I was blogging about her being born and how tiny this little preemie was with those big, black eyes that studied everyone. How the time does fly!

And now we're officially in Holiday 2012 shopping season! It all begins with the crazy, zany Black Friday, then Small Business Saturday, leading up to Cyber Monday, the biggest online sales day of the year. I'm jumping into the fray by offering a 23% discount on your entire order through midnight on Monday, Nov. 26th. Enter the coupon code BLACK in the Discount Coupon box at check-out.

Shipping for all orders has been set at a standard $4.95 USPS Priority Flat Rate, except for orders of $50 and over which will continue to receive free shipping, and excepting international orders. Those will require additional shipping costs.

Come visit my What's New page for more details. Happy Shopping!

Life Imitating Art

Can you guess what this is before you click on the picture to get a closer look? Does it resemble anything familiar? Maybe you have something similar in your craft room? It's actually folded and stacked wool, stacked high up two adjoining walls at the Albany International Airport as art! I've often thought of the beautiful colors and textures of wool as something wonderful to look at, and someone actually put it on public display. Art is inspiring, isn't it? Now I want to dive into my own wool stash and create!

Have an artsy kind of day!

Through the Garden Gate

Wow - looks like I took the summer off, huh? Not really, and quite the opposite - I got a new full-time job that's been keeping me out of trouble. Delivering the mail was challenging and fun, but I knew it wasn't going to be for me. A job more suited to my career skills came along and well, off I went. However, I've still been receiving new goods and finally getting a few minutes to try and promote them.

Garden Gate Threads is Need'l Love's newest. Pretty in pink, wouldn't you say? There's a Maggie B. hooked rug design in this book, worth the book's cost alone. Very sweet projects including fiber art jewelry. Definitely one for the Threads collector.

Several new magazines have arrived over the past several weeks - The Wool Street Journal, Primitive Quilts and Projects and a new issue of FOLK called "the vintage issue". It's a good one. Need something new to read? I've got it!

Just a quick post, must run, miles to go before I sleep. Enjoy your week!
