I am still here.....

 "Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated'

Will have a live on my Facebook explaining in the next day or so....(ask to join this group-industry announcements and mild entertainment happens in this small area of cyberland....) It is nothing horrible-just comments made that made it sound like I am not producing product anymore....

Actually this the 'quote'
Twain wrote a response, part of which made it into the article that ran in the Journal on June 2, 1897:

Mark Twain was undecided whether to be more amused or annoyed when a Journal representative informed him today of the report in New York that he was dying in poverty in London ... The great humorist, while not perhaps very robust, is in the best of health. He said: ‘I can understand perfectly how the report of my illness got about, I have even heard on good authority that I was dead. James Ross Clemens, a cousin of mine, was seriously ill two or three weeks ago in London, but is well now. The report of my illness grew out of his illness. The report of my death was an exaggeration.’

As like Mark Twain-there is some information that has been misinturpreted-
I guess that is what happens when one lives in one's studio and does not come up for air. I will be doing a live in the next day to explain-and show off a couple of new things going on here in Cauldron land....I want to thank everyone that was concerned that I was not dyeing or designing anymore....BWWWAAAAA you are stuck with me for a little longer.

Have a great week.....

A tour of new Listings and more information.....

 Been busy dyeing and adding new designer's charts in my Etsy.  It is always a new adventure each day to accomplish all that needs to be done.  

I will be attending Gallaria 2021 Cathy at Inspired Needle 630-243-9620 can help you with signing up for this wonderful retail event.  Dates September 22-25, 2021 at the Embassy Suites Hotel in St. Charles Missouri.  This is an exciting event with vendors from all over.  Hope to see you there.  I am busy collecting trims, dyeing velvet, linen and more.

On to new listings.  I am always looking for new things to add to my Etsy - this moment I have picked up some new designers and some others that have appeared in my shop before-here is a smathering of some of these new listings.

Wonderful Americana pattern from BlackBird Designs.  Barb and Alama always knock the ball out of the park with their designs and adorable finishing ideas.

These quick but elegant designs from JBW Designs are wonderful gift stitches.  These little pamplets have the pattern and great finishing ideas.

Romina has been busy in Italy-these are two of her new items.  Red and Blue is totally adorable and comes with the charm to attach to the sampler.

Long May it Wave is another classic from Dutch Treat Designs.  This chart has been in my Etsy before and I just got more.  It can be stitched on paper or linen.  Claudia always has a history with her Reproductions/Adaptations.  A great addition to your Americana collection.

Hoffman has been busy reprinting OOP The Prairie Schooler charts.  We are so lucky that they have the rights to reproduce these out of print charts.  The Prairie Schooler charts are always a delight to stitch and hang on your walls.

Americana Froth is back!!!!  It is a wonderful neutral color that has subtle molded coloring.  A great pick to stitch Blackbird Design samplers on or other Reproduction samplers.

A few wooden pieces by MTV are in my Etsy-these unique pieces are from Italy and a delightful addition to any work basket.

Tiny but useful.  This 3.5 x 3.5 wooden measuring tray is a great ort tray or scissor holder.  This tray is offered by Dames of the Needle-with the help of a great friend.

Last but not least Mahala Barber is an Adam and Eve reproduction from Fox and the Rabbit from down under.  

As you can see there is a wide range of designs and designers.  More linen, trims, velvet and other surprises are being listed almost daily.  

I truly appreciate your support and always enjoy seeing your newest works in progress.  I hope you have a wonderful 4th of July and enjoy the Summer moments.  

Well-I am off to pull orders and dye-Hugs Ebeth
