Fall Frenzy…September 25-27th

Its Fall Frenzy at the Wisconsin shop…Primitive Gatherings along with Going to Pieces in Appleton and two other shops in Green Bay will be participating.

If you come to Primitive Gatherings during this time you get this pattern FREE with a $25 purchase during the small shop hop….I stitched this while in Utah on a mini retreat…just in time for this event!  It is 18″ wide and we do have kits for them for just $30 each…I added batting and a binding on it for something different….You could also add a little quilting in the center to add a little more to it…I will be putting a candle on the center so I did not bother adding some quilting…I just used a fabric adhesive to secure the layers together and then look for a single fold binding tutorial later on today…IMG_6100We will be offering this deal on our website for those of you who cannot come to the shop…we would never leave you out!

Had a quick little retreat with friends in UT Friday through Sunday…There is a three hour flight from Appleton to Vegas…where Vegas Val picked me up to join Joyce, Louise, Charlene, Mimi, Diane, Deleska, aka Demelza,  Ginger, Gale, Shannon and Lily in St. George!!!   Saturday Diane and I had a little hike in red mountains…then a message with everyone else and lunch after…then back to the stitching…I can’t wait to show you what else I stitched…IMG_6002

  1. Beautiful area. Will put that on the need to visit list. Happy you had a mini retreat to rest & rejuvenate. Like your new table mat but do I need leaves inside to remind me of all the fallen leaves outside that we need to deal with? Oh well, that’s living in the woods chores.

  2. Looks like such a fun getaway with friends! Love the little fall mat! 🍁 Perfect as the leaves are starting to change in our area!
