You may have noticed....


Good day...gosh I missed being here...Hope you all had a very pleasant Thanksgiving. There is nothing like getting back to routine though...I am back, I am back, I am back.... and thought I would drop a quick post to let you know " I have been thinking" ....as David could share with you, that is not always a good thing....He tells me when he hears those words, the hair on the back of his neck rises...

Wellll hopefully I will get a different reaction from you, because this will be a GOOD THING! ( not that in the past it was not a good thing...but for David it meant I was in the Zone.... oh oh)

You may have noticed many of  my graphics have been portraying VINTAGE themes....no accident actually....allllll on purpose... You may have noticed  Brooke Nolan and Cori Blunt designs for our Tammy 4 all seasons are all vintage.... yep, on purpose too.

What I have noted is that VINTAGE everything kinda brings us closer together.. It reminds us of simpler times...REALLY when was the last time you stayed in bed in the morning reading a newspaper with your favourite BREW?  I bet many of you never start your day this way, especially with a newspaper in hand...

WELLLLLLL I am hoping that will change ....I am not ready to share what news will be unveiled very soon for 2015 but let's just say many of you will be itching to be stitching .....

I have been working very closely with quite a few companies, companies that are also embracing this VINTAGE theme, designers who are also embracing this theme...and no doubt you will be embracing it too.

So in the meantime, later today, check back in, I will supply you with some photos on how to do some cross stitching...steps that will help you along as you tackle ( for some of you) a new venture..
For others revisiting a craft that you may have discarded but have a renewed interest in...

SEEEEE already I have you thinking VINTAGE and that is such a good thing....

I am backkkkkkkkk!




PS. it is later in the day and oh POOP, I had a few errands to run with my David
his car needed winter tires and a couple trips back and forth, we had to install a brand new printer from HP that was ordered on Thursday of this week, arrived late yesterday ( Friday) and would you believe someone from HP called to see if we needed any help in installing it....YEP....I was so impressed! Now that is what I call customer service beyond what is expected from some of these corporate companies...
...I could not get my pics up and detailed...Would you mind checking in tomorrow?....I will get them done tomorrow....
I have a shepherds pie ( homemade)  that is heading to the oven and I will be stitching in the Zone this evening completing my VINTAGE Fall that our sweet Brooke designed...YEP....slowing the pace already...  See just thinking VINTAGE has me slowing down...( and if you believe that...welllllll wink)

  2. I enjoy your vintage themes. At my age, it brings back simpler. more pleasant times in my life. Pictures, just like words, are comforting and stir up those special, hidden memories. Makes me smile.....;)

  3. Ahhhhh, vintage. I remember my parents reading the newspaper in bed on Sundays. My hubby and I were sitting, eating Thanksgiving leftovers just last night and reminiscing about when we were young and out parents TVs, stereos and furniture that we remembered. This is the time of year lots of those memories come flooding back. Can't wait to see what you're up to.

  7. Cross-stitching is so relaxing. Add vintage and it is even better. Hand work soothes the soul. I love it!

  8. I NEVER say in bed..EVER. But the first thing I do when I get up is turn on the coffee, take the dog out to the box with me to get the paper. Coffee and Newspaper in the recliner. I haven't cross stitched in years and would have loved the winter pattern for a tammy, but not before Christmas. But I'm joining in somewhere in 2015 for sure.

  9. I have during some time collected vintage fabric from a Swedish fabric company that disappeared some years ago. This design is so lovely and the cotton quality is fantastic.

  10. Ha! The only way the newspaper makes it into the bedroom is if I go out to get it first. Up at 4 a.m.;feed dog and cat; shower; dress; walk dog; bring in paper; make coffee...by 4 a.m., I've already tossed and turned for a 1/2 hour lol Besides, if I went back to bed, who would make breakfast? Nope, vintage in this house is me making and serving breakfast...now that is soooo me! Have a great day, and welcome, welcome, back!

The hair on the back of Nicks neck stands straight up too when I am in my zone!! ;) Off to work now but look forward to the rest of your post when I get home. Welcome back and have a wonderful Day!!

  18. Vintage seems to be very popular right now. Perhaps for the very reasons you have stated. I think we all want to go back to the "good ol' days", whatever those days may be to us. 2015 should be fun.

  19. Ahhhh, the good old days ... so many fond memories of the years past. Had to laugh about you comment of David's neck hair rising. That must happen to him a lot! ;) Looking forward to your neck hair raising ideas for 2015. Sorry David. :)
