You are Special Patterns

Monday, July 20, 2009

I really wanted to post last night, but woke up with a bad headache, which lasted all day and night, nothing would get rid of it. So it was a wasted day for me. So trying to make up for lost time today.
I have had several people email me and ask where I purchased my beeswax and scents from. I purchase them from Peak candle supplies and Candlescience. I buy most of my beeswax off ebay, just look for ever has the better price with shipping.
I am doing another giveaway this week, this is a Santa I made from a pattern by Chestnut Junction, just love her patterns. Also included is a little Christmas window to go with him that says warm welcome. Just leave me a comment and I will draw a name on Friday.

Next, I did get some more of my simple Angels made, this pattern will be available in a few days, still writing it up. I am able to use up some of cutter quilts this way. I hate to throw away any of my scraps, and this is working out perfectly.

Next, I have added the little Santa ornament to the share box on the side. It is in 3 different download boxes, for some reason I had to do the graphic, instructions and pattern pieces separate, so be sure to get all three parts. Please let me know if you have any trouble downloading it. I also added some free Christmas graphics I found, that you might be interested in, so scroll down until you find something hopefully you can use.

This next doll is by Raven's Haven. She is called Stella the Ugly dream Angel. She is so ugly, I love her, she always sells out at the my shows. I managed to get one of her finished today to share with you all. I plan on making several of these this year.

I just realized that the new Country Sampler is out, and already get orders for the finished scarecrow I have in there. Just wish I would get my copy. I keep checking their website to see if they have the new issue up yet and of course they don't. So hard to believe it is almost Fall. I guess I will have to do a Fall blog next.
