I planted our front pots this weekend, in the blustery wind and overcast skies, then in the afternoon it snowed. I'm glad the pansies enjoy this weather. The branches are from my crab apple tree at home. Do you think they will blossom? I think this adds some cheer out front, I hope the pansies start to show out the top of the pots as they grow....
This makes me want to stitch Lavender Pansies by Silver Lining.

and the Alphabet is by La D Da.
I have changed the colors for our model of Lovebirds and have a color changes for you. Both are stitched on a small count, 28 count, fabric over one. However, you can stitch yours on any count that you like to work on and I am sure they will be just as adorable...
When we came to work this morning the water was off and the traffic was terrible! There was a broken water line on Fort Union, and you know how the traffic gets in front of the store...
We decided to make the most of the day and package fabrics.
I don't think Wendy had any idea how much I had stored in the garage when I asked if she wanted to iron. She ironed and I packaged for most of the day. We are very well stocked now with scrap bags that are perfect for smalls.
Thanks to all of the customers who came in to see us today, braving the weather, the work trucks and the traffic.
Oh, and John, don't expect Wendy to do ironing at home, this was just a special occasion.

It is taking everything I have in me to not take home the blue glass pincushions.
Beehives of course, because we are the beehive state...
We even have a couple of Easter pincushions in stock.
Just a couple of close ups.

This is our newest milk glass set. I am very fond of violets!
This is green depression glass. I love the color in this one.
and a beautiful carnival glass sugar cup with a frog.
Now I have to share my very own scissor frog. Sometimes you just run across something that you can't part with. This is my pink scissor frog. I thought this pink sugar cup was just darling. I love even more every time I look at it!
Karen and I both wanted to stitch this French design and need to encourage each other along. We are meeting on Tuesdays at the shop to stitch and chat, and work on our pieces. We have chosen to work on a 36 count summer khaki linen.
