Welcome September

Summer is winding down...school (in some capacity) is starting, fall is around the corner, but around here the temperatures are still hot.  How about where you live? 
I love September...my daughter's birthday is coming soon, but all the other things I looked forward to are cancelled. Hopefully next year all this will just be a memory.
We are tough...we can get thru all of this!

Above is this month's phone or tablet wallpaper calendar.

This is the desktop version for your computer.
I love purple... so I thought is was a good time to bring in some lovely purpleness.
Woof woof!
Home is where your dog is!

This is my brand new pattern of: Puppy and posies Pinnie- 
Embroidery & quilted pincushion pattern #414

Make these super easy and quick pincushions with scraps of fun fabric.
There are 4 different designs: a puppy with flowers embroidery, a skinny / long rectangle, Medium rectangle and large rectangle.

With this pattern: Learn how to embroider a sweet puppy dog in a patch of flowers. Incorporate your small embroidery into a fun pinnie which makes a great gift. Sew up any of these cute sizes with tips to make them & machine quilt them in a flash! Each have a cute ribbon loop to attach your small scissors to it and decorative flower pins.

Here is a closeup on the easy special decorative pins you can make!

busy, busy , busy!

I have been working on a new book...but I have finished all the main work on it so I have a chance to play!
I've been making these Halloween ornaments!
They are a blast!
Every time I make them... they sell out fast.

Jack and his pal Zero.... sweet friends!

Pennywise and the devil....

Franky and his babe....

the black cat...love his bow tie.

The creature! I especially love him...he is fun!

I have new ones in all the time, but they sell fast. 

My daughter Selina (Selina Hudson Designs) and I drew up some fun Halloween WOOD ornaments!
We designed together....she cut them on her laser, sanded them and painted them!
It's always fun to collaborate with her. There are 15 different designs.

Here is the creature...cute yet spooky.

This is a set of five!

The owl is one of my favorites!

Another set of five... a pumpkin, bride, ghost, franky and skull!

They are also available in natural wood...you could leave them natural or paint them with watercolors.


My daughter Selina has been super busy....and she got her first home...with her boyfriend Jaryd!
It's a sweet cottage....corner lot. I am so happy for them!
Here is the side with a little porch and car port. It has tons of storage and a huge shop!

They already have it all decorated and it is perfect for them.

Here is the living room, before stuff moved in.
Nice hard wood floors

They have been trying to get a house here in Spokane for 8 months...every time they bid...they were over bid.  When this house came up...there was 11 bids in one day....but they got it!
One of the best things about it is that it is a short drive away!!! yay!!

I went antique shopping with my sisters....and found my dream display case!
I love DMC floss... and have tons of it....this is a beauty!
This is how it looked at the store...my eyes bugged out!   lol.

Sweet back drawers!

I filled them with floss.

It's not big enough for all my floss, but I knew that would be the case.

It is metal with a glass lid that opens up.
Right now its by my chair....I just look at it sometimes and can't believe I got it.
I struck up a deal for it...which scared me...but I got it cheaper which is cool.

Welcome September!
