Twice Is Nice
The day has dawned a dark gray, making the lights to stitch by cast a warm, golden glow. The rain started shortly after sunrise and there have been rumblings of thunder as cool Canadian air makes it's way to us. A goode day to enjoy hot tea and play favorite movies as I work. Above, a new witch to give a stern, old fashioned tone to the Wee Doll House. I chuckle as I play around with her hair and try different hats to her. No matter what I do, she looks like she could be George C. Scott's mother...can you tell which version of A Christmas Carol has been played lately?
It is still very busy with pattern orders since the release of Country Sampler and I am still stunned to see the pattern designs in print. I am also pleased to announce the publishing of another piece in Better Homes and Garden's Holiday Craft Magazine.
I am excited to share that Goody Pumpernickel is a free pattern. I had so many email and call asking that she be a pattern when I made her. It was difficult to keep mum that her pattern (with a few tiny adjustments) would not only be available, but would be included in a magazine along with other creative projects to delight and inspire. How fun it is to have 2 magazines; both with Goode Wife designs, available at the same time. Pretty incredible for this Granville Daughter from Upstate New York. It could take a long time for the "pinch me" bruises to fade.......
