Fall is official today!

Fall has arrived, its official!   All the signs were becoming evident but I’m wondering what happened to summer.  Getting old sure makes time fly!   It’s already getting dark sooner, the maples in front of the house are starting to turn, the apples and pumpkins are027 plentiful at the orchard and farm market, the geese are in the fields yup its official fall has arrived!  I love fall but it isalso our busiest time of the year in the shop, we all knew it was on our heels but lucky for us we are ready. 

We just got in a great canvas Turkey this week.  He is simply called “Thankful”, he has great old color, and is a classic turkey for sure. I love his size because it gives you many029 options for displaying him.   He measures 18″ x 23″ and can be purchased for only $29.95.  Turkeys this year have been so awesome, we have had so many good ones already and can’t get more which is  a dilemma we hate but that’s retail, either you order too many or to few.  

I finally got to get “Jack-A-Boo” in place.  This is a wonderful primitive folk art quilt.  It was a quick sew so you have time, and if you like to do a bit of handwork the wool gets whip stitched in place.  I always love to add a texture to a quilt.  He measures 48″ x  48″.  The pattern is in the the fall issue of Primitive Quilts magazine.  This kit is available for $72.00 a024nd includes the wool.  You can also “Halloween at Hollyberry Farm” one of our favorite Stacy Nash Primitive sampler designs.  Fall is an exciting time of year everywhere in the shop, the fabric colors are so pleasing mirroring the fall foliage.  You can see  Stacy West’s fabric displayed in this picture and Carol Hopkins “Dominoes” 018pattern. 

Gwen’s “Southern Wisconsin Rails” is really an autumn beauty and wonderful quilt with movement and fabric interest that will be sure to get lots of compliments when displayed in your decor.  The feed sack Turkey pillows continue to be very popular too. I will continue to add more photos in the next few days.  I hope you enjoy. 

I know you are not thinking about Christmas and winter but I just have to share a new design with you frWinter Woodsom Chessie and Me.  It is kitted and we kitted it complete with the winter night wool so you can literally get it  all finished and  then you are ready to stuff it.  It is so sweet I know you will love it.  It is called “Winter Woods”.  The complete kit is $33.00.  It is never to early for us to begin thinking about Christmas stitchery.  I have my stitchers working on several new holiday projects we will have ready for you at open house, I have chaged up colors and linen in several and I think you will be happy with the results.
