There will be a day of classes on April 30th, a 'needle-in' on May 1st along with a preview shopping evening, and on May 2, a show for the public!!
Penninsula is a lovely little town, very picturesque so it makes a great destination get-away! I hope to see many of our friends and customers. I'll keep you posted on any news and check their website for an updated list of vendors!
It's a snowy day here in Ohio ~ I spent most of it in the office getting things in order! Good day to be inside!
I hope all of you are well and warm! Talk to you soon and thanks for stopping by!

I hope you're all well and having a good winter! We have recovered from the Christmas craziness and I'm just wrapping up all my year end things for the business. Have my office all in good order for the first time in a long time! And we're getting ready to go to Florida ~ thanks to my wonderful Tad sitter for holding down the fort for me and taking such good care of him! Sonny will be working right up until the last minute to finish a couple of projects he's had all winter and I will, too! I'm getting in a quick beginners class on Sunday for some gals and drawing some patterns for another!
I'll do better about staying in touch ~ I haven't even been a good blog reader over this last couple of months!! Thanks for stopping by ~ I really appreciate it!

This little Santa was hooked by me years ago and what I love about it is that the background is the linen foundation. It hooks up pretty fast and would make a nice gift!
A couple of months ago, a customer ordered the pattern so thought I would draw up a few and offer them for sale. It will 9 x 12 and is $20 ~ since it's Cyber Monday, I'll include the USA shipping for today only! Email me at email@example.com!
Thanks so much for reading ~ I've been missing in action for a while ~ life gets so busy here!! We had a great Thanksgiving at our lake place with Ted and family ~ even went to Walmart and bought a Black Friday special! That's a first for us ~ it was very orderly and Sonny got a good buy on a flat screen tv. The kids make such fun of us because we still watch tv's with tubes and not very big ones at that!! Combine that with the fact that Sonny recently got a smart phone ~ they're pretty impressed!
Have a good week and I'll get these out as fast as I can!!!

Irma begged to come home with in my hooking bag! She is
created by artist Olive Rose and Karen Kahle brought along a
little trunk show for us to choose from! Last year, one of Olive Rose's cat dolls jumped in my bag so now she had company!
This is Karen's needlepunch version of her Santa pattern.
It's very appealing although this is way toooo tedious for me to do!
out! Love this little mat with cats paws, needle felting and her corded roving couched onto the border.
It's a great little piece!
Everybody loves Ali's heart! There are several different stitches and techniques that she uses ~
definitely on my to-do list with her sometime!
It was a great three days spent in Tipp City with old friends, Jackie and Deb, and many new gals that we met! Jackie and I have been at all four of the classes that Ali and Karen have taught ~ hope they do one next year!!
Thanks for stopping by. Most of my blogs in recent months have been from my phone ~ somehow that isn't working so I'm back in front of the computer! One thing I notice when I previewed what I posted is that the picture quality is sooo much better having transferred the phone photos to the computer! Note to self ~ take the time to do it this way! Except when I'm on the move ~ sometimes I have to post on the run ~ there are some things just too good to keep till I get back home! I've been doing a lot of Facebook posting as those of you who are Facebook friends, know. It's so quick and easy because it's a picture and a couple of words about and voila ~ it's out there! If you're a blog reader and on Facebook, make sure we're "friends" and keep up with our adventures that way, too!
Talk to you soon!!
P.S. I'm getting ready for a show Saturday at the Richland County Fairgrounds here in Mansfield ~ The Gathered Treasures Show ~ antiques, folk art and me! Follow "Black Cat Primitives" on Facebook. Come see us 10-4 Saturday!

Karen Kahle and Ali Strebel giving us an overview of our three-day class. This is the fourth year and friend Jackie and I have been here for every one!
Vintage Christmas is the theme and this is Karen's rig offering. Many of us are hooking this one!
Ali's Peace Dove is very reminiscent of days gone by ~ and is covered in sparkles !!
This is her needle punch version of the same design.
Karen offered two more rug designs.
We are having a great time here in Tipp City! Pittsburgh friends, Jackie and Deb came Wednesday and while Jackie and I worked on our Maggie B projects, Deb finished binding a rug for her and an owl for Jackie! We had a nice, relaxed afternoon and then left early Thursday morning for the drive to Tipp.
There are 30 gals in the class working on all varieties of the above patterns. Some have totally designed their own ~ lots of creativity here in this big room!
If you ever get the opportunity to attend Ali and Karen's "2 in 1" class, you won't be sorry!

My Maggie Bonanomi bedcover is coming along! Laura and Pam and I gathered again on Monday and they're really helping me to stay at it!
There are still things to add and more stitches to do but it's on the downhill now!!
Life is busy here as always! Had a fun weekend at Kelleys Island with our lake friends. It was cold and windy but we made our rounds of our favorite watering holes and had lots of laughs!! The words on my project are Live Love Laugh ~ that's our motto ~ and hope that we've accomplished that at the end of every day!!
Here's to making the most of your day!!
