Notes from Nancy

As I write this newsletter the sun is shining and it is close to 50
degrees. I hope I haven’t hexed the weather by putting my long coat in
the closet. I am still in wools however!  The April Road Trip starts
Monday and the instructions and photo just got copied and they look
beautiful. Carrie Ritter does such a great job at International Minute
Press in Lansing. We are excited about the project and in order to
purchase the kit and pattern, you must get the punch card for $5.00. You
know if you did this last year that it is good for 3 months in a row
and really special deals in the shops listed on the punch-card. I am
working on a basket of flowers for the May project that will hang on the
clothesline. Just take the sheep down and hang the basket of flowers
for May. This basket will hold flowers of wool, velvet, and a bud of
hexagons. In my mind it is beautiful!

I have been having fun making a few curtains for my house from the thin
gauzy fabric that came a few months ago. It only comes in white so I
dyed some with tan Rit dye in my washer and it turned our really nice
with a few blotches which was great. I have included a picture of the
one upstairs to whet your appetite. This fabric is 60″ wide and sells
for 6.99 per yard.

Jo Morton’s new line called Madison Manor came yesterday and there are
24 new beautiful colors for your next project. The girls are putting
together fat quarter bundles and fat eighth bundles.

Check out the new books and we will see you on the Road Trip. Have a great Happy Easter and keep stitching!
