Goody, Goody Gum Drops!


Something I adore about taking a vacation is having my mail held at the post office. I love the opportunity to visit postal workers who now call me by name and will ask about days they have not seen me. I especially like the moment they will bring to the counter all of the mail that is awaiting my attention. It's like Christmas!


Expecting ordered felt to be in my delivery, I was excitedly surprised to find the publication that will be featuring my felt patterns, Thread Candy Studio.


Even more surprising was finding my little Fourth of July "Star" larger than life among the candy colored pages. I was expecting perhaps a little corner, not a three page feature. Wow!


My Opener of Windows Beth did such a fantastic job making the instructions as easy as can be for anyone to follow. A lot of hard work goes into writing patterns, and I am so appreciative of her efforts. The most fun news to be shared in October will be the first edition of Felt Candy which will feature more of my work and also offer kits complete with felt and all supplies should you wish to make your own holiday characters.


The wonderful candy colored pages of this issue inspired my parade of garland hangers with their gumdrop hues.


Truly, there is a Happy Dance going on inside my heart. If you wish to learn more about this publication, you may click on the button on my sidebar. For all of those who have encouraged me with your kind words these past years, please know my patterns are always here for you to find.

POST NOTE: This is the company that owns my patterns until September of 2013 and is why they should not be Pinned to Pinterest. The company has not done anything with them; so after next fall, pin all you like. I love to share anything at all I create!

susan said...

In your post you said you were waiting for an order of felt. Where do you get your felt. I have just been buying it at the local Joann Fabrics store. Is there a better place to get it? And just what kind of felt do you use? I would think that the wool felt would work up better than the stuff you get at the store. Thanks for your answer,in advance.
