Yes, I know how long it has been since I last updated this blog! Those close to me know how busy I've been and all that I've been involved in lately. . . . . it's all good. . . . promise! OK . . . . so let's see what we have to talk about. The first is a bit of news regarding the change we made to February releases. You were expecting Louisa B. Snow this month and instead you are seeing the Spring Band Sampler. Louisa (if she behaves herself) will come out next month.
The Summer Sampler will be out in a few months, completing the set of four seasonal band samplers. Winter and Autumn are available for purchase now and can be viewed on the LHN web site.
Next is the second ornament of the month in 2012, "Tree Farm". As a child I remember hunting for the perfect tree in "lots" that sold them by the hundreds. Choosing one from a tree farm would be far more challenging but fun!
The fabric is Tin Roof Gingham from Weeks Dye Works but it isn't showing up well in the photo at all. Trust me when I say this looks great on the check fabric!!! I will be updating the main web site within the week but be patient with me please! I have had nothing but trouble with browser compatibility and the site and it is giving me a lot of trouble (and headaches).
Other things. . . . . .My oldest grandchild, Juliet turned 10 this month. Nikki and Derrick threw her a wonderful party and we all, especially Juliet, had a great time.
Arizona turned 100 yesterday! Jessie Bell - Arizona Territory was last month's release to celebrate the event. It can be seen below this post.
And lastly, you all know of the tragedy that Tucson, Arizona, and the country experienced a year ago last January. I photographed the stone memorial at Safeway for all of you to see.
I will be updating this blog no later than Saturday the 25th of this month with a special surprise. I'm sorry but I can't give any hints. . . . just stay tuned!
