My mom and uncle Gary

Mariah and her Aunt Jen

My most awesome daughter and me

Our son from Philly was home, it was so great to have all the kids under the same roof! Now that Chrismas is over, it is time to buckle down and really get ready for Nashville! I have some cool things lined up! Stay tuned!

Witches Everywhere!

Aren't these just the coolest things ever! Carmen and I got our heads together and she made all these wicked witch scissor fobs for me to sell in St. Charles!

I got these neat old wooden trays at an auction and thought they would be perfect for displaying my limited kit for market.

And here is 1612~a new release for St Charles, if you want the chart or one of the witches have your shop owner stop by my room my pretties.

Flatheads Embrace Framed

Here is my flyer for the kit for St Charles. Mariah made it for me (thanks honey!)
Speaking of Mariah, we moved her back to school yesterday~the house seems so quiet.
I really miss her already!

Here is Flatheads Embrace framed. The picture looks greener than it actually is. Will have to get a better one taken, but you get the idea.
I really need to get motivated and get some charts printed~well maybe tomorrow!

And the winner is~~~~~

(my poor samplers on the wall are always askew in the summer as I always have the front door open and the wind blows them every which way!)

My DD Mariah was in charge of picking the title she liked best~So as the sign says
"Congratulations Sandra!" Flatheads Embrace it is!
Mariah had her top picks written out and then chose from them, I thought why not give all the top selections a chart~~so additional winners are~~
Julie & Becky
Terri Boog
Tina S

Sandra you get Flatheads Embrace plus get to pick out one more of my charts. Since these won't go out until I get back from St Charles, Sandra if you want to pick another new release just let me know.
Winners please e-mail your addresses to primitiveneedle@aol.com
