Seeing Spots!

Let me begin by apologizing (ONCE AGAIN) for being such a bad blogger.  I try, I really do.  My TSH Face Book page gets updated more frequently, so check it out.

I spotted (pun intended) this linen at the Attic one Sampler Sunday.  I couldn't resist designing something for it.  I've always been crazy for polka dots, and these are RED!  The design, called Polka Dots and Alphabets, was made into a stitching bag by Faye Riggsbee (Carolina Stitcher).  Please contact her for details if interested.
I opted to use real antique buttons and Weeks Dye Works wool on the model, but I've charted the buttons and wool tongues, so if you'd rather stitch them, you can.  The photo below shows the stitched version.  No groaning about the over one, please!  It's not bad on 32ct.

I had fun finishing the accompanying pieces.  I love the simplicity of the safety pin.  The measuring  twill tape was found at a local fabric store.  I've seen it online at Etsy, and at quilt and scrapbooking shops.  Charts are being shipped to shops and distributors.

Below is my project for the upcoming Summer Soiree at the Attic in August.  It's called The Little Red Chair Sampler.  Spots (can't help myself) are still available. Yes, it's hot here in August, but we'll be very cool inside!  Don't let the heat scare you away.

Here's an upcoming release...

Have a safe and wonderful Memorial Day Weekend!
