I started with a love of stitching and sewing for babies that has stretched to encompass smocking, heirloom sewing, teaching, sewing for myself and my friends. Most importantly, this has given me many friends that I have met along the way who all share in this love of creating something with our hands, our minds, and our hearts!
I am so sorry it has been a while since I have posted - I have subbed for the last 6 weeks in Transitional Kidnergarten. I had a lot of fun with 23 4-5 year olds, but have realized that there is a reason I had my kids when I was young!
Great news! 3 of the A-Z books from Country Bumpkin are being reprinted and are in stock now, retailing for $20! (See newsletter for sale). They have different covers than the original publications, and one has a new title, so be aware of that - NONE of these are new books.
The first reprint is A-Z of Embroidery. This is a GREAT reference book if you do any embroidery! The inside is the same - step by step pictures for each stitch.
The new edition has the same pictures, the same layout, etc. as the old edition - just a different cover. Next is the A-Z of Bullions, now known as A-Z of Embroidered Motifs
And finally, A-Z of Stumpwork
The one to watch out for is the A-Z of Embroidered Motifs, as the title has changed. I had several calls from stitchers thinking that a new book had come out, but only a reprint! Great for all of you who do not already have this book in your library!
I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving, with your friends and family.
