My Sisters' Punch Needle Embroidery on eBay this week!

My two sisters love it when I feature their punch needle embroidery creations! One of them is computer challenged, and the other doesn't have time to maintain a blog since she works full time. My baby sister always says "oh, if this one doesn't sell, I will give it to you for your birthday." But they always end up selling! Hey sis, if you pop in here ~ my birthday's coming up the end of July! ...and I'd really like an eyeglass case like the one you sold last week.

Here's what my Atlanta sis has for you this week, (you can see them in more detail here by clicking on the link below):

And here's what my baby sister up in Virginia has on eBay this week, (just click on the link below to see all the details):

Calling All Fabriholics!

(Click on to enlarge)

All you ladies who are crazy for fabrics, check out my eBay listings this week! I've started to go through my huge quilting fabric stash, starting with the Moda Kansas Troubles lines of fabric that I've collected including "Prairie Moon", "Stitches on the Oregon Trail", "Pressed Memories", and "Quilt Connection." There are still 2 sets to list, including "Once Upon a Prairie," a really collectible line of prints by Julie Ingleman Designs for Moda dating back to 2001. A lot of these fabric lines are out of print and hard to find. I'm offering them at low, low starting bids!

These Kansas Troubles prints are all very "prairie" and "farmhouse" looking ~ great for primitive creations like prairie dolls and farmhouse ditty bags.

Cowgirl ATC ~ On eBay Now


My creative outlet seems to be playing with glue and papers again of late. This cowgirl themed ATC is on eBay this week, with some new ones to come later in the week.

Hope to get back to working with fabrics again over the weekend. What are you working on?

These have come up again this year, and I still don't know what they are. We're in South Carolina, the upstate, about one hour south of Ashville, North Carolina. The previous owner planted them, and I'm so curious about what they are.

Anybody?

'Til next time,

My Sissy's Latest Punch Needle Pieces


My Virginia sissy has new punch needle pieces up on eBay this week ~ including several Americana themed ones. The "Old Glory" piece was designed by her. Although a simple design, I thought it turned out really well. I'm always pushing her to come up with a one of a kind, unique design since she has the talent to draw.

And I love this blue bird sewing pouch...


Anyone have a black Lab?...


Who doesn't love sheep ~ especially when you can adjust your punch needle tool to provide this great texture!



You can see all these lovelies in further detail at her eBay listings here:

KSGP Shoppe Updated!



Just click on the "Sew Dear To Me" KSGP Shoppe button in the column to your right to view my new listings! I rotated my May 15th listings with entirely new items to keep what's being offered new and timely for the decorating seasons ~ there several Americana listings this time around!

I love taking out the Americana when Memorial Day rolls around because you can keep it out from then till the end of Summer, when it's time to switch things out for Fall and Halloween. I just wish I could find a scarecrow pattern that I love. I haven't seen one that strikes my fancy! : -] Maybe my friend Kim (where are ya Kim?) can come up with one!
