It's Goode To Be Back!

After some time away, it is certainly great to be back. I have been sewing, but for orders and samples. I had a difficult time trying to keep these wee folk from peeking out into the world before we were all ready. My Olde Salem Witch is one of my very favorites tonight on TDIPT Mercantile. I love Early Work and she certainly embraces it. I will be making her for local shows this summer.





Now these two characters have a wee bit different tale to tell. Yes, they are available on TDIPT as finished pieces, but they are also available as patterns!  You may preorder them and they will be mailed out starting next Wednesday, July 21st. They are 9.00 each and 1.00 to ship one, add .50 to ship both.For orders outside of the US, please email me for shipping.

A Goode Visit Had



What is better than a trip to see friends? Enjoying the history and the food along with their company! Tim and I only had a couple days, but they are already fondly etched in our memories. Bailey and Jess are still there and enjoying the summer with their new found friendships of Rose and Annie.  We had a wonderful visit to Williamsburg. I never get to see it all, but that's why you just HAVE to go back. Next time, Jamestown is the first stop. Yes, Virgina, there will be a next time...and not so many years will go by before we do it again. A big thank you to Ron & Susan for their fine hospitality and to Arlys, for a great evening of catching up. We'l be back!

Virginia or Bust!


Summer has come full force here and there is excitement in the air! I have been working very full days (til the wee morning hours) making samples and filling orders...lots of orders! Store orders, finished friends and quite a few patterns. It's that time of year when we all like to create. It's been a crazy pace with school finals and taking care of my Mom, but well, I haven't been bored since about 1987.


Tim and I will be taking my daughters to Virginia on Friday. The last time I visited my dear friend Susan, Ron and Rose; Bailey was just walking. Jess and Annie weren't even thought of. Now, four young ladies will get to enjoy each other...really enjoy. Aunt Susan is very, very brave to take on two extra teenagers. Bailey and Jess will spend a few weeks as they all have a grand adventure. Did I mention how brave Aunt Susan is??? 


I will be taking time off from Simply Primitives, but hope to have new friends on TDIPT ~ July 15th. I am trying my best to make this next week a full vacation for me...it's going to be difficult. I already packed paper and ink.....shhhhhhhhh, it will be our little secret.
