This has been a very busy week sewing and getting orders out and now I’m sewing items for my HOME SHOW.
I have 6 round Penny Mats cut out and almost finished along with some adorable Snowman Pillows (which I have to take a picture of and then I’ll post it).

Doug headed on a delivery to PA yesterday so it’s just me, the needle and two kitties.

Saturday we went to a craft show at our two grandchildren’s grade school and it really was a nice one  - NOTHING PRIMITIVE OR COUNTRY but the crafters still had some very nice items. I did find one booth that had VERY LITTLE FOR PRIMITIVES and so I picked up one of the items. They are tart melts but different than ones I’ve seen before so I just had to get them…you know how that is, right???
They were $10.00 for 12. Oh, the scent is Creme Brule – yummmmy.

Boy, when I don’t get out of the house and just sew not much happens for me to post! lol

So with that I will say HI TO EVERYONE and I will visit everyone eventually!



  1. Those tarts are different...I would have bought them too! Happy sewing.


  2. Never have seen those tarts before...I will be on the lookout, or were they made by a parent in your area? Can't hurt to ask, right? Of course, I probably wouldn't melt them anyhow...just use them for display! LOL!


  3. Those are different tarts. I would have bought them also :)

  19. Hi Karen!
    Cute tarts! I love those little craft shows. Sounds like you are busy! When is your home show? Is it just for friends, or do you advertise? I LOVE my willow runner I ordered, have I told you that a million times? Well, it's true! I gets tons of compliments on it!!

  20. That tart melts are just great.

    Whether you have a lot to say or a little.....I always enjoy stopping by!

    Hugs to you..enjoy your quiet time stitching!

    Hugs, Doreen

  21. What cute tart melts. I wouldn't want to melt them either. I'd place them all around in bowls and such. :)
    Sounds like you're doing well getting ready for your open house.
    Blessings to you~ Birgit

  24. It is our God-Given duty to buy at least one item from a sale.....I just know it is! I love those tarts!

  25. Sounds like you are very busy! And those tarts look so cute! Can't wait to see some of your pics of your openhouse! have a blessed day!

  26. Hi Karen, so glad to hear from you again! If you're like me, you'll get a lot done while you're home alone. When Dick's here, we seem to spend a lot of time together and I hate going off to craft - that's also when I do my hand stitching. When I'm alone, I love to just light a great candle (or those lovely tarts), turn on some beautiful music, fix a cup of coffee or tea and just work, work, work! Have a great day, Dawn

  27. Karen, those tarts are darling! Almost too cute to melt! I would have bougth them too. I bet they smell so good! I love that scent.

    Have a great week!
