Okay....I've held off posting 'cuz I really wanted to share this with you.  Some of you have been in and seen this *in progress* but this afternoon and then tonight I finally got just enough time to finish the top.  Jan and I teamed up on the embroidery ~ she did all of the hard stuff and I just did a couple of them.  Then, I started stringing red/white 30's together and voila.  Isn't it just too cute for words!?!  The pattern is not done in redwork, but after stitching a couple of blocks and having a tough time with colors showing up, we decided to punt and do it all in red/white.  We are thrilled with it!  It's screaming to me to be hand quilted, but then it would never be done and up and selling patterns  =)   Sew, we'll see what we can come up with for quilting.  We have quite a few of these patterns....and we used the Sulky 12 wt. Christmas Red to stitch it.  Think it made a really nice clean line.  Oh, think the pattern's called "Betsy's Closet".

What a great week here @ Fab-Etc!  We've got ideas rolling around in our little heads for projects galore.  Tracey brought back the Enchanted Runner team Fab-Etc worked on.  Her quilting is superb!  I got the binding machine stitched on and tonight I'll start hand sewing it on.  Harriet is working on a folded star hotpad.  More on that later!  I traced another stitchery to start on and I have a few other ideas brewing for the Open House at the end of the month.  Oh....isn't there any way to make just a few more hours in the day?

Hope your week has been good so far.  We'll be ready, willing and able to help you this weekend if you need some project *stuff*!  Laundry's done.....got to run.
