Emma Rose Freedom, 2012 Retreat News & Design Chatter!

Emma Rose Freedom...

It surely has been a busy, busy month! Hope that everyone of you readers and followers are enjoying some good weather. It has turned much cooler here, and I feel that Autumn has finally arrived in our neck of the woods!


I wanted to let everyone know that Emma Rose Freedom is now ready for purchase from me. It has been at the distributors for a while now. I can sell either just the pattern or the pattern, fibers and fabric, that I have in stock! Feel free to contact me, at the email provided and I will get back to you asap!

2012 Tree of Life Samplings Retreat News...

I have had oodles of inquiries about registration and general info about the 2012 Retreat. Anyone interested, PLEASE email me soon, with your contact information. I will be sending out requirements for registration in about a week, and I don't want anyone to not be able to come. That said, we are limited as to how many, capacity is 35, and that 35 has to include Vonna, (yes Vonna will again be coming with her wonderful finishing skills and dynamic personality) my daughter and myself, so that brings the number I can make room for to 32. You have no idea how fast the signups can be, so don't delay! I promise it will be a weekend you will not soon forget!

When emailing please put in the subject line of your email 2012 Retreat! Thank you!

New Design Chatter...

I am in the process of designing a smallish quaker piece, with autumnal colors and a wonderful, thought-provoking verse! I say smallish, because I tend to design more on the medium to large size of projects, and this one is the smallest I have done to date, with the exception of the smaller design I did for last year's retreat for the box finish. There is also an adorable and precious pin pillow/cushion design to complement/coordinate with the larger piece! Fun, fun and I am VERY excited about it! I just have to get this color scheme RIGHT! BOTH projects are done on Tree of Life Linens, one of them is a new color, called Almond Creme'. So, that said, stay tuned for a sneak peek of this design...I am not only struggling with a color palette, but a name for this special release. I think I am going to need your help, SO when I post a sneak peek of my progress, it will be your chance to try and name it for me! The winner, will of course, win the design when it is released! Remember to watch for this post, in the next few days, for your chance to win, ok?

Fondly, Jan @ Tree of Life Samplings

Emma Rose Freedom is definitely on my wish list. With all the flood damage cleanup, the budget is tight now sadly. So no buying for a while. :( But I will get her when I can afford it!
