Hi Vicki,
Welcome back. I am sorry you had an accident. I wish you a full and speedy recovery.
I am looking forward to the Honeycomb Motifs pattern set. I hope it arrives at Pattern Bee soon.


That's too bad about your hand. I hope you'll be able to use it again soon. We so enjoy viewing your handiwork. Fall was beautiful here, but winter is expected to arrive this Saturday. And that's a pretty season too!


Sorry to read about your hand. It sounds like no fun at all. Nothing like being forced to sit and read. Wonderful that your family kept things going smoothly. It shows how well they have been raised. I'd make sure that they have the wonderful experience of planning and preparing Thanksgiving, too. One really shouldn't deny them. =D Take care of yourself, Vicki, no more tangles with mini-blind handles or any other thing. Your embroidery project is sweet and unique.

I love the hexagon embroideries!! Get well soon!


Sorry to hear about your accident. It's crazy how something so insignificant can cause such damage. Your October Fire is a beautiful tree! The hexagon embroideries are a great idea.


horrible accident, do hope it heals completely very soon. Love the hexagon embroidery pattern!


Oh Gosh!! I'm getting arthritis in the thumb of my right hand so I know just a little of how hard it is to do lots of things when you're hand is not 100% or even 50. I like this hex design a super lot.


I'm so glad to see you back. I'm sorry about your accident, but I'm glad you're on the mend. Love your hexie embroidery!!! I'm rather hooked on EPP so I think your new transfers will be a must have. :) I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

I am so glad to see that you are back! The hexagon shapes to cut apart and add to a quilt are genius. This looks like something I would love to do. Happy Holidays through the end of the year!


I remember checking this blog years ago when I was so much younger, and I was so inspired by your life and family, how you created so many things from scratch and always had such a beautiful outlook on the world. Your garden is beautiful and so is your home, have a very happy Thanksgiving :)


Oh I'm sooooooo glad you're back! I love love love coming to your site (and store. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!! And may your hand be well soon. Like TODAY! :)


I was so afraid something bad had happened causing your absence. I'm so sorry to read about your hand. Life must be very difficult for you. I know how much you love to embroidery and sew. I'm sure you are missing it a great deal. I will keep you and your family in my prayers. I pray you have a speedy recovery. Your Friend, Velma

Have missed you Vicki! and all the seasonal pretties that you make. So sorry to hear of your accident and glad that you are on the mend to enjoy the holidays and everyday activities. Autumn here in Colorado was long and beautiful, we are covered in snow now and staying in as much as possible because it is sooo cold. Happy Thanksgiving and MERRY Christmas!!!
