Just wanted to let you know I have updated my page on Early Work Mercantile. I have 2 samplers, a covered box with pinkeeps and a small shaker cheese basket with a stitched egg listed this month. I did a fun sampler named Bessie Polk that was inspired by Pineberrylane's newest design "This Have I Done". I used the little gal from her sampler with permission. I couldn't sleep one night and came up with the short verse " I don't like stitchin' but it's better than a switchin'. Most small girls in days of yore were taught to stitch at a very young age. Poor Bessie didn't like it and it shows by "Not my best work". Too fun.
thanks for stopping by, I'll be back soon with more pictures. Merry Spring to all
til next time ~

I have been inside stitching and stitching. I have made a few baskets for orders and still have a few orders to get sent off.
I am excited about all of the new goods from the Nashville Market. I had to replace my laptop, the hard drive on my old one was fried after only 3 years. I got another laptop, windows 8 with tons of storage. So far I like it very well. I just got a new wireless printer today but haven't taken it out of the box yet. Also for Christmas I was so lucky to get an Ipad. What a wonderful gadget.
I just thought I would share a few pictures of some finishes.
Anne Wilson is a new design by Tina Woltman and Emma Wheeley is from Jenny Hoffman. Lydia Broome is a favorite from Pineberrylane.

It seems I was glued to the TV for awhile watching the effects of the horrible storm on the east coast and then it was the election. I pray for all of those affected by the storm. It breaks my heart to see the devastation in New York and New Jersey. I hope everyone gets their power back soon.
I wanted to do a quick post to remind everyone of the Log Cabin Christmas at www.earlyworkmercantile.com
I have been busy stitching and have a few new things. I’ve also been working on some huge beeswax orders the past month. I’ve only made a couple of baskets and that was at the kitchen table. We had to take our woodstove out of the shop so my dear husband is putting in a gas wall furnace for me and he’s almost finished. I can then resume working on orders and I thank you all for your patience. PLRASE click on picytres for a larger and better view. On my ipad part of the picture is cut off . Thanks so much.
Just a couple of pictures to share with you, I will be updating my selling blog very soon as well.

It seems as though I have gotten carried away with picture sharing. If you see something that catches your eye, shoot me an email. Perfect gifts for that prim loving friend or a treat for yourself.
Happy Thanksgiving to you all. I wish peace, plenty and joy.

The Bittersweet is Blooming ~ this is the first in a series of four designs I am offering, one for each season. I now have the epattern available on my selling blog or you can purchase it by emailing me at email@example.com The price is $7.50 and I will invoice you through paypal. I am already working on the winter design.
It has turned very chilly here in northern Michigan. The winds have been gusty and we have had a few snow showers. Nothing staying on the ground yet but it won’t be long. It seems like the little ghosts and goblins on Halloween always freeze out there trick or treating.
I am so blessed to be inside by the wood fire with a pumpkin candle burning working on a few projects.
Look at these two handsome little guys, Liam and Kohen. They are looking so grown up and could they be any better looking??
I will be back soon to catch you up on what’s been happening, though really not much is new. Don’t forget to check out www.earlyworkmercantile.com the evening of the 14th to see all of the new wares the talented artists have to offer.
til next time ~ be blessed!
