Holiday sales...

While we do not have the snow and horrific weather that other parts of the country are getting.  It is very cold and now rainy here in Georgia.  I understand that all the wild fires in North Georgia are now contained, but the devastation left will take years to over come...we must keep praying for these families and towns.

It is really looking like Christmas here in our new home....I will post pictures of all the final decorations closer to Christmas.  It has been fun, stressful and interesting getting ready for the holidays in my new home.  I still have things in storage units, the garage and stuffed in different parts of the house.  I am still deciding what is staying, what items are getting new homes and what new items are needed to make this new space work for us.  It is such a different style for me, but I am loving it.  I do miss my samplers, stitched works and other art.  I hope to start hanging items the first of the year....but I will not make promises.  I have found I have eaten my words on when things will get ready in this new house more than once.

Holiday Sales-A sale is going on this weekend!!!!!

I have extended the sale through Sunday-I just got more threads and I am going to split these shipments with this sale and my end of year everything needs to get out of my dining room January 1 sale....

As many of you are aware the price of Pom Pom, Chenille, and Rick Rack will go up the first of the year.  I am having a blow out sale with these items reduced till the first of the year.  I will have what items that have been left from other sales and a few new trims on sale till the first week of January 2017 then the prices will go up.  The sale is only on my Facebook page.

Well, I am off to post more items that will release late tonight and all through Sunday morning.  I will close the sale mid afternoon.

Enjoy the evening....hugs ebeth

Spare time....right

In between decorating, dyeing and organizing online sales....I finished these items for a client.  They were different and fun to finish.

This pillow needed to be bigger so I added strips of fabric and alternated the cross over on the corners.  I also dressed up the side with Just Another Button Company's buttons to play out the images on the pillow.  I used a Jute coil for the cording on the edge of the pillow.  It added a rustic look to the pillow.

This was a fun pillow to make.  I got a denim work shirt from Goodwill and measured it for the stitched piece and cut it out and sewed it together for the pillow.  I put iron on interfacing on the back of the stitched piece and I hand sewed the piece onto the pillow.  I Rouched a Gross Grain Ribbon onto the edge of the stitched piece.  I added buttons onto the seam edge instead of a cording and decorated the open space on the edges with Just Another Button Company's Buttons.  This pillow is supposed to be a Christmas present for the client's son. 

Here is a fun Christmas pillow.  I used the same Jute cording, but in a red color to add a rustic look to the pillow.

Finally an Easter ornament.  This was so cute.  I sandwiched the Rick Rack between the front and back pieces and tacked into place so that only the edge peaked out around the piece.  I put batting on the front and back to give it some depth.  I used Raffia for the bow and the hanger.

It was fun to put on my finishing hat and sit down and work on these pieces.  Got me wanting to design and finish more items.....

Hope the client is pleased with her new goodies-will be delivering them tomorrow.

Well off to set up a sale for this weekend----See you on my facebook.

New Pom Pom

As promised-down to business.  I finally got to get the dye pots out yesterday.....Loads of linen hitting the door on its way to clients.  I did grab a moment and came up with a new color.  Inchworm Pom Pom.  This light green color is a start on filling in the green color section.  English Holly is a new color that was added last month.

Many of you may have read this on my last Facebook sale, but all the trims are going up .25 per package the first of the year.  From now till January Pom Pom will be on sale for $2.00 on my Facebook sales only.  Beginning January 2017 it will be 3.05 per 1 yard package.  Keep a look out for the sales.

Off to dye some more and set up for a sale this weekend.  

Happy December....Ebeth
