Where have I been

Where have I been, I feel like I have fell off the face of the earth.  Had a lot of medical issues to get through these past few months.  I had all my regular checkups, some problems, ended up having to go for pelvic and internal ultasounds. Luckily all they found was a big fibroid.  I can live with that. Then had my mammogram, regular checkup, colonoscopy, and all came back normal. But then all of a sudden a big growth appeared and grew and grew and I knew it was something. Had to find another doctor, a dermatologist and found out I had a squamous cell and a basil cell cancer on my nose and leg.  Had to have the mohrs surgery to remove them.  Now ffinally feeling a little bit back to normal. No more doctors for a couple of months thank GOD.
I have gotten so far behind on my orders and now trying desparately to get caught up. The wholesale group has far surpassed my expectations. We are still looking for any crafters that may want to join our group on facebook. The only items we are not accepting are candles, tarts and wood signs, so if you are a fabric artist or do something a little different, please contact me. So many of our sellers are so booked up, we are always look for new sellers. 

Now I did manage to get a new pattern ready. I call this one Homespun Christmas
I will have it on the side bar if you are interested in purchasing. It is $6.00 for the e-pattern and $7.95 mailed.
Here a  few pics of the some of the items I have been working on lately. These are from my You are Specialpattern pattern line. This is the one #318 Hannah's Christmas tree. Sold quite a few of these.

I have sold a ton of these Santa ornaments, the pattern for the freebie is all the way at the bottom of the page if  you want to download it.

I made more of the snowman nodders, pattern by Sassafras Hills Primitives. These have been really good sellers for me at the shows.

Well, I am cutting out my big 3-day show that I have done since it started, over 21 years ago. Makes me sound old.  But can't do it this year, so keeping my one day show at McIntosh and going to try one more one day show a friend, told me about. Just sent in the application and will let you know more about it, if I can get it. It is only 9-4 on one Saturday. I love one day shows.  

Thanks so much to everyone that emailed me and wanted to check up me. I am hoping to be blog a little more often now, that my doctor's appointments are all over with for a while. I will start my chemo sessions back up in Oct/Nov.  So I am going to try to get caught up and enjoy not having to go to the doctors.


  1. I am sorry to hear you have been going through so much. I need to have my skin checked too, more spots as I get older. My husband gets skin cancer since he is so fair and just had to have some dug out, not fun.

    Love your new snowman, very fun piece.

  11. Just a quick note to tell the general public about a great man who brought my husband back to me after 11 years, his name is Dr. OKO. My husband was snatched from me by another woman when I went to see my sick mother, I came home to meet the house empty my husband was not at home, he wan’t picking call none will he call back. I was left alone with our 4 years old baby, he was gone for 11 years but just a month ago a friend of mine called me to tell about oko and she gave me his contact and I did contacted him and he told me my husband was with another woman. Also, he said he will bring back my husband within a few days, I thought it was a joke but behold my husband came home begging for forgiveness just as OKO promised. Off course I forgave my husband everything became normal even more that it was before. You too can be helped by him if interested through: or call/whatsapp: +2348131684022.
