This week begins the Farmhouse Threads mystery blog hop! I am beyond thrilled to be a part of this exciting designer event. Also happening this week though is that I leave for a holiday to the Gold Coast of Australia. The timing isn't the greatest as this is a very busy time for Simply Put.

Welcome to a new year with many new opportunities on the horizon. Last year I made the decision to move out of state and open a small retail shop up in Washington. Unfortunately those plans did not come to fruition. The ramifications of that was I didn't have many shows booked so it was back to the drawing board, literally, and designing became a huge outlet for me. 2017 I will have 4 designs in two different magazines, Primitive Quilts and Quilt Mania! woo hoo!
I have designed a line of 6 mini quilt kits which I will sell exclusively at the quilt shows for $14.95. They include all fabrics, backing, single fold binding and 6" heart wire quilt hanger.
I began remaking many of my primitive designs with Modern fabrics in 2015, this continues with my two newest designs "House Warming".
Spending time on the beach and in the mountains are two of my favorite places to retreat. "Cabin Life" was inspired by one of those visits...
|#M396 Kaleidoscope Garden pattern $8.00|
|#407 Simply Mini-Halloween|
|#408 Simply Mini-Snowmen|
|#362 House Warming pattern $7.50 28" x 41"|
|#M362 Modern House Warming pattern $7.50|
|#399 Cabin Life pattern $7.00 pattern/kit $19.95|
This morning my Events page was updated with all of my shows AND the Farmhouse Threads blog hop mystery block which I am so honored to be a part of. Hope to see you at one of my shows. For more timely updates follow me on Facebook or Instagram (links in margins of blog).

Show season is beginning this Labor Day weekend. I never like to vend at a show with the same designs I brought last year. I've developed a line of mini quilts sold as kits that were super fun and quick to make...
I also have a Haloween mini to round out the group. Although Primitive is my love I also am quite fond of remaking those designs with a Modern edge. Here's my latest modern design which I will have up in Big Bear this weekend

The sewing group times are always a fun time to catch up and to take a peek at what the other ladies are working on. Our resident hooker, Shirley, shared two of her projects...
