Thanks to all of you who came out for the BSSG Market Day & Fiber Fair in Bowling Green Ohio yesterday. We had a really fun day and it was great to see familiar faces and new shoppers. At one point during the day, I looked up and saw quite a crowd of people and overheard someone say "looks like the recession is over!" Despite the cool weather, the sun was shining and I think that is enough to raise one's spirits.
If you haven't been to my website recently, I do want to tell you that there are a few new patterns added. The Notforgotten Farm collection has three delightful new patterns. You can see them at the top of the page. I love all of them but I just wanted to point out that the Daisy pattern is a really wonderful pattern for all you "wide-cut and primitive" fans out there.
Also added is 6 new magical and dreamy adaptations from Ann Willey's designs. The new patterns are again listed at the top of the page. There are some great animal designs (check out Little Fox!) and two "girl" patterns that can be embellished in so many ways. I immediately thought of some colorful Sari ribbon (did you know that Spruce Ridge Studios carries a beautiful selection of Sari ribbon all the time?) and I think some funky yarns or quillie circles would work too.
Lastly, there are a few delightful patterns in The Cooperage section. There's a really cute Gingerbread Men pattern that can be hooked as a small bag or a square mat. I'm not sure that I've seen any Gingerbread Men rug hooking patterns out there so I think this one is really special.
I have been working more on my hit and miss border. It is quite a long runner but I almost up to the third corner. I will post an update as soon as I can get a new photo.
