I've been working hard for the past month on oodles of accessories that are sure to tempt. My new Juniper Gingher scissors have arrived but I need some good daylight to be able to make the perfect matching fobs, so those will be another day or three out. They are beautiful and I can't wait to find the best Swarovski colors and accent beads to delightfully decorate your scissors. For today, though, I have rulers and needle minders galore!

Life here has been challenging for these past few weeks. Our dear and beloved golden retriever passed away. She was only 7.5 years old and declined quickly from a previously undiagnosed brain tumor. We lost her a couple of weeks ago and it broke my heart. I was never a dog person until her, and now I can't imagine a better furry friend to have (don't tell the cat). The house is quiet, the vacuum is working far less to keep up with fur, and it just isn't the same. Prompted by that loss, Doodlebug and I did a quick trip to visit friends and family in Idaho. It was amazing to see so many who are dear to us and be able to surprise them. It did cement that our home is now Texas and we will continue to settle in to the community by serving however we can.
On a happier note (and returning to work news), new chart releases will be out in a couple of weeks! They are printed and awaiting my attention to get them packaged and ready to head to the shops. There will be FIVE new releases!!! There will be a Celtic knot style Christmas piece with scripture from Isaiah, scripture from Deuteronomy with a stitched floral frame, something snarky for the married people out there, a companion to the recent "Give Thanks to the Lord" design, AND something fun for the cat lovers!
